DELuxe VIP Experience
It’s hard to imagine improving upon the DelFest experience, but we’ve come up with a way to push it over the top with the DELuxe Experience VIP Packages!
Late Night Shows
The pickin’ and good times continue into the wee hours at DelFest! Late Nights begin after music has ended on the Grandstand Stage on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and take place inside the DelFest Music Hall. Separate tickets required.
The KidZone is an exploratory and interactive place, designed to spark imagination and keep curious minds engaged with piles of outrageous silliness and cool activities! The KidZone welcomes the doodlers, the daydreamers, the shade dwellers, spectators, and the soon-to-be scholars. All are welcome to watch and enjoy, or jump right in!
Prepare yourself for another glorious day at DelFest by connecting your mind, body and spirit. All classes are held on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and are open to all festival attendees.
In the Grandstand music meadow you’ll find our Vending Faire, offering a colorful array of quality clothing, jewelry, musical instruments and other crafts that our artisans create and gather from all over the globe. We emphasize handcrafted items that are unique and hard to find in conventional shops. Also find some participating non-profits so you can do good while you’re there.
Food & Beverage
DelFest features a wide variety of festival cuisine including local, ethnic, vegetarian, and vegan options. Our drink booths – located in the food court, music meadow and Potomac Stage – feature a variety of craft beers, wine, bottled water, iced teas and a variety of soft drinks. Ice is available in the main food court.
DelFest Academy takes place the Sunday through Wednesday prior to the festival. The Academy is a friendly, encouraging, and intensive four-day learning experience with some of the finest musicians in bluegrass serving as instructors for students of all levels.
Our region is packed full of opportunities worth exploring, so we invite you to come early or stay late, because four days of music is much more fun when you add in all of the experiences that exist in our mountains. Things to do in town.
BAM Beer Shop
The Brewers Association of Maryland is honored to introduce the “BAM Beer Shop.” This shop will exclusively feature a collection of locally brewed, limited-release beers. Each of these releases is crafted and packaged to celebrate the music of Del McCoury and the one-of-a-kind DelFest experience.
