DelFest 2019 will take place May 23-26, 2019, and once again be held at the beautiful Allegany County Fairgrounds in Cumberland, Maryland. The festival originated from the desire to create a family-friendly music festival celebrating the rich legacy of McCoury music while creating a forum for world-class musical collaborations and to showcase fresh new talent with a down-home feeling. Produced in association with High Sierra Music, the 12th Annual DelFest will offer a quality festival experience stamped with the unique McCoury touch. Nestled along the Potomac River in the scenic Appalachian Mountains, and personally chosen by Del, the Allegany County Fairgrounds in Cumberland, MD (2.5 hours from Baltimore and D.C.) serves as the perfect location for DelFest. The fairgrounds are conveniently located near four major airports and can be easily reached by rail or road. The city of Cumberland, MD, is a welcoming host offering multiple hotel options, a charming downtown, and great amenities that include biking, a steam train engine and museum, and top-notch dining.
