TODDS FORK REVIVAL
A Little History
TODD’S FORK OUTDOOR BLUEGRASS FESTIVAL
“Everyone welcome to enjoy Bluegrass and Mountain Music. Fun for the whole family on 50 acres of wooded bottom land along beautiful Todd’s Fork Creek, located in Morrow, Ohio approx. 30 miles from Cincinnati, 75 miles from Columbus on Rt 22&3.” – EXERPT FROM THE ORIGINAL FLYER IN 1976
Nestled on 45 acres of creekside property in Morrow, OH on the banks of scenic Todd’s Fork lies a place with a rich musical history. The Todd Fork Bluegrass festival was held here from 1972 through 1976 at a time when bluegrass music was really gaining ground in the music scene. The festival hosted such musicians as Red Allen, Vernon Mcintyre and Appalachian Grass, The Osborne Brothers, Newgrass Review, Jimmy Martin, and the father of Bluegrass Bill Monroe. It also had a flea market!
About 5 years ago the land was purchased by Freddie Carmack and Glenn Hubbard. They’ve since made some improvements, carved out some campsites and now host campers as Todd’s Fork Adventures…and now 50 years later we’re ready to bring back the music to the valley!
Come and join us for a weekend full of music, camping, fireside picking, food, and fun!
