The Grassroots Festival of Music & Dance appears each year on the Trumansburg Fairgrounds in Trumansburg New York for four days of celebration of both contemporary and traditional roots music. Originally starting as a humble AIDS benefit concert in Ithaca, Grassroots has evolved into a nationally recognized nonprofit event.
