The festival, which raises funds for the Perinatal Institute of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC), aims to raise $50,000 this year. Bluegrass for Babies is a non-profit founded by Mat and Anne Schneider, Mt. Lookout residents who sought to find a way to give back to CCHMC after their son received life-saving surgery at only 2 days old. This year, Bluegrass for Babies takes place at Sawyer Point with Greensky Bluegrass as the headlining act. Other perfomers include The Comet Bluegrass All-Stars and Jennifer Ellis. New this year is the “Healthy Kids for a Brighter Future” initiative where local health experts can give parents knowledge about raising active, healthy kids. At the concert, kids can play games while parents visit educational booths.
