Save the date! The 7th Annual Union County Covered Bridge Bluegrass Festival will be held September 19, 20 and 21, 2014 at the Pottersburg Bridge.

At the bridge near North Lewisburg, the festival captures the alluring sights, sounds, flavors and aromas of bygone days when covered bridges were more than a way to cross over water.
