Festival Description

Three-time nominee for IBMA Event of the Year the festival is a great family outing! Over 30 hours of concerts by national & regional bands, including the Boxcars and IIIrd Tyme Out, over 20 hours of demonstrations & hands-on workshops (instrumental, jamming, songwriting, harmony-singing, etc.), old-time dances with live bands (plus callers & instruction), and morning yoga. Jamming — both organized and informal — will happen around the clock!

Over 20 hours of activities for kids, including contests, crafts, games, and special stage shows. Shade available at all stages & activity areas. El Rancho Mañana, a great campground with a swimming beach and horseback riding, is just west of St. Cloud, about 90 minutes from the Twin Cities. 1208 acres of privately owned land with 25 miles of trails for hiking or riding. Shower facilities in a couple of locations and porta-potties everywhere. Free tractor-drawn trolley service running throughout the campgrounds.
