In an area that loves its festivals, the Finger Lakes GrassRoots Festival of Music and Dance is one of the most iconic. For nearly three decades, the celebration has featured a wide array of musical acts and drawn tens of thousands of people to Trumansburg every summer. It’s become such a staple and success, it’s hard to imagine it any different.
But as the scope of the music has expanded and attendance has consistently risen, come challenges and opportunities. This has given the organization a reason to assess its state of affairs and make an expansion plan that will allow it to grow in the decades ahead. Organizers have some big plans that include new infrastructure and plenty of space to stretch out.
