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.

Information will be added to this website as planning for this event continues. You can keep updated on our Facebook page.

FREE admission to all activities and music at the Pottersburg Bridge on Saturday and Sunday; parking is $5 per car, good for the entire weekend.
