El Portal Sedona Hotel loves when people visit this beautiful city! (Of course we really love it when you stay with us 🙂 )  There is so much to do, see, explore, discover here – a trip to Sedona is worth every penny!

But what visitors don’t realize is that Sedona is more than hiking and shopping – there are many cultural events and activities too. One of our favorites is the Sedona Bluegrass Festival, now in its 8th year!  Upcoming events that connect the Illuminate Film Festival to the Sedona PhotoFest to the Sedona Bluegrass Festival will be true feasts for the senses.

The festival includes a movie in collaboration with Sedona International Film Festival, a Bluegrass BBQ, two days of concerts under the giant sycamores alongside Oak Creek on the grounds of Los Abrigados. Here’s the line up for the 8th annual Sedona Bluegrass Festival…
