Trampled By Turtles to host Festival Palomino at Canterbury Park


Duluth bluegrass quintet Trampled By Turtles are set for their most ambitious musical venture yet. After releasing a live album commemorating last year's 10th anniversary shows, their next step was a music festival of their own.

The inaugural Festival Palomino at Canterbury Park  is on Saturday, September 20. TBT will headline the festival, along with a wide array of local and national acts hand selected by the band themselves.
