The festival starts where the side walk ends just a 5min. walk to historic and picturesque Newbury Village. A state boat launch is within walking distance for boat owners who want to paddle the Connecticut River. Mount Polaski trail head is within walking distance with breath taking views of the Upper Valley. Pick your own strawberries 2 miles away at 4 Corners Farm.

Kick off with Friday night’s bonfire.  Live performances are 20ft from the fire. Bring an instrument to participate in the open jam.  The main stage line up starts at noon on Saturday until the second bonfire stage heats up.  Enjoy VT microbrews, local harvests, awesome views and guided activities for kids around the play tent.  Bring lawn chairs, coolers, lawn games of choice and enjoy a Camping & Music experience as a whole family.

 If you are part of a group of 5 or less, sleeping in one tent, you should purchase a family tent site. Please note, RV sites have no toilet or electric hookups. ***Camping is an option***. You can purchase day passes for Friday or Saturday and enjoy everything except sleeping onsite.  It is very important for us to keep track of the number of  people who will be attending, so please include the “total # in family” in the drop down menu.  If you only plan on camping for one night you must still purchase a full weekend pass.  For further questions please email

    “It’s not just the technical expertise or the mastery of an amazing variety of styles that puts Vermont fiddler Patrick Ross several steps above and beyond practically all other players; Ross’s eclectic taste and raw energy make sparks and create musical magic every time his bow hits the strings.”- Robert Resnik – VPR –
