Dear Friends in Bluegrass,

2022 marks our 50th  Anniversary camping season, 82nd and 83rd festivals, and just the 3rd year we’re offering sponsorship opportunities.  We hope you will consider partnering with us in attracting visitors from around the world to Gettysburg. We were very pleased with the response in 2019 and 2021 and hope to build even more partnerships in 2022!

Granite Hill Camping Resort is family-owned and operated. We have a rich history in Adams County, originally as a working farm, then Gettysburg’s very first campground. Our internationally acclaimed Bluegrass Festival, one of Adams County’s premier music event, has hosted bands from around the world. It continues to be one of the successful area events, drawing thousands of attendees in both May and August. With approximately 20 bands on two stages over four days, there’s something for every fan of this purely American genre.

Locals and country-wide visitors alike will be coming to our two Bluegrass Festivals through Gettysburg and Adams County along highways and by-ways, eager to experience our events, as well as what our area businesses have to offer. We invite you to take advantage of this tremendous marketing and promotional opportunity, while experiencing what Bluegrass is all about.

Sponsors of our two festivals will reach this captive audience, as well as the community at large, through public announcements, promotional, advertising, and vendor opportunities. Several Sponsorship Levels are available to choose from, some of which include event tickets and VIP backstage passes. You can also choose to sponsor a special event within the Festival. One we’re passionate about is our Academy for Kids, where children can learn about Bluegrass music and how to play a stringed instrument. EASTMAN makers of handcrafted guitars and mandolins have sponsored the the academy for 23 years!  Thank you to Tim Finch and EASTMAN for their continued support!!

Thank you for your time and consideration. We hope you’ll agree that helping to keep Bluegrass alive and well in Gettysburg is a worthwhile effort you can get behind. As bluegrass founder Bill Monroe once said, “Bluegrass has brought more people together and made more friends than any music in the world. You meet people at festivals and renew acquaintances year after year.

We look forward to partnering with you and seeing you at one or both of our upcoming Gettysburg Bluegrass Festivals.
