With the sweet sounds of bluegrass ringing through the Depot, the free Bluegrass Tomball Festival is not one to miss. Back in 1907, the historic Depot was the hub of activity, and the Bluegrass Tomball Festival is bringing it back for its 9th year!

Developed in the 1940s, the Bluegrass genre of music can best be described as a kind of country music that is influenced by jazz and blues. Unlike country, however, Bluegrass is played on acoustic instruments like banjos and guitars.
