Sertoma Youth Ranch, which hosts the festival, is set in the rolling hills of Brooksville, FL on the Hernando/Paso county lines. With 80 acres of oak trees, creek and lake, the rustic and gorgeous campground has over 200 water/electric sites with 30 amp service, permanent bathhouse with restrooms, showers and dump station. Plenty of space to spread out under the stars while you are tent camping in our primitive areas, but easily accessible to the bathhouse. Campfires are allowed and the park is pet friendly. The covered stage and seating area lends itself to an intimate gathering of like-minded music lovers with large dance area. There will be a fantastic array of food and merchandise vendors on site all weekend.
On Saturday, there will be a full day of children’s activities at the Youth Pavilion. Bring your kids and grandkids (children 12 and under are free to the festival with a ticketed adult) and enjoy hayrides, face painting, music, arts and crafts plus more. A playground is also in the campground for the kids to play on. Get your kids out of the house and enjoy the great outdoors!
IMPORTANT TO KNOW: Blues Bash at the Ranch is not just a camping event – single day tickets for Friday, Saturday and Sunday as well as weekend passes are on sale, so grab them now! Camping is not required to attend and parking is free. This laid back, high caliber blues camping optional experience is one you don’t want to miss out on.
If you do want to camp at the festival, and don’t own an RV or camper, we can help you get hooked up with a rental. We recommend booking one now if you want to come for the whole weekend. The water and electric sites are limited and will sell out quickly. We have unlimited tent camping areas and space for self-contained units with quiet generators.
There are several hotels located just up at the next exit from the festival if that is more your style!
