The beloved Salida community event known as “Bluegrass on the Arkansas” is back this year, scheduled for May 28 and 29 in Riverside Park. Sponsored by the Salida Rotary Charitable Fund, a registered 501(c)(3) organization, the event provides two days of Bluegrass and festivities at the park, as a musical kickoff to the Arkansas River Valley season of summer.

The profits from the event, including food and beverages, along with donations and event sponsorships all go toward the Salida Rotary youth scholarship fund. The fund provides vocational and scholastic scholarships for Salida High school graduating seniors.
