There is a lot going on at the Bluegrass From the Forest festival. In addition to band performances--in the main auditorium's Performing Arts Center and the Showcase Stage across the quad (both indoors), the festival offers a host of activities, including Master Workshops, Band Scramble Showcase (anyone can participate) Banjo Contest, Chick Rose’s Youth School of Bluegrass, Mandolin Tasting, Marv’s Slow Jam, vendors (located in the quad) and much more. There will be contests, all night jamming in the campground (midnight hot dogs included). One thing’s for sure, there is plenty to keep you occupied at any time throughout the weekend!

Camping at Bluegrass From the Forest
Planning to camp on site? Because the festival takes place at a school, we have to wait for school to get out before we can set up camp at 4pm on Friday. If you'd like to arrive early to get in line for your favorite camp spot, please join the wait line across the road and a half mile up at the Church of Nazarene parking area. There will be signs directing you there. And you can bet there will be jamming. Click here for more info on camping and local lodging.
We're looking for businesses and philanthropists who want to sponsor our festival! It will pay some of our many expenses and also help keep our ticket price very reasonable. Please contact Duane Wilson at firstname.lastname@example.org and he'll give you the specifics.
