2022 Camping Renewals

We ran into some technical difficulties getting all of the camping renewal emails out before the festival, so the deadline has been extended to NOVEMBER 1. You may not have received your renewal email yet, but we will get it to you and we will NOT give away your site until and unless we have contacted you and verified that you do not wish to renew. 


Please be patient and kind (we are all volunteers) and this is a new process for all of us. It may take a while to get the emails all out (we thought it would be a more automated process process but we are having to process each one manually) and we are still busy with festival wrap up work.




We will make sure everyone who wants to renew will be able to do so.


Thank You!


The 15th Annual Lakes Bluegrass Festival

August 25 - 29, 2021

The Appalachian Road Show featured at the 15th Annual Lakes Bluegrass Festival

We are excited to announce that Appalachian Road Show will be headlining the 15th Annual Lakes Bluegrass Festival, August 25 - 29, 2021.


Appalachian Road Show is a visionary acoustic ensemble, bringing new-generation interpretations of traditional Americana, bluegrass and folk songs, as well as offering innovative original music, all presented with a common thread tied directly to the heart of the Appalachian regions of the United States. GRAMMY-nominated banjoist Barry Abernathy, joins forces with GRAMMY-winning fiddler Jim VanCleve, fresh off of his recent stint touring with multi-platinum country artist Josh Turner, as well as esteemed vocalist and mandolinist Darrell Webb, who has recorded and toured with Dolly Parton and Rhonda Vincent, among many others. The group also includes bassist Todd Phillips, an acknowledged legend in bluegrass music circles, with two GRAMMY wins and four GRAMMY nominations under his belt, along with 23-year-old  “old soul” guitarist Zeb Snyder, whose fierce and versatile playing recalls Doc Watson and Norman Blake as readily as it does Duane Allman and Stevie Ray Vaughn.


Also headlining the festival are High Fidelity, Fast Track, The Farm Hands, High Plains Tradition and many other great bands. Click here for the complete lineup!


This will be our first festival at our new site, The Lakes Music and Events Park! We are so excited for you to come and see our beautiful new park with lots of great campsites (electrical and primitive) set in the pines along, with our new workshop and band pavillions and large concert area.



Come see us at our beautiful new festival site, less than 1 mile up the road from our previous location (see map).
