General admission will be offered at the gate. Availability of festival passes with concert seating will be first-come, first served.

If you attended last year’s event, please note that we are no longer offering individual concert tickets. We’re excited to launch our NEW festival format, with all-day passes for Friday, Saturday, or both days. As a festival day-pass holder, you have full access to the entire festival, plus EXCLUSIVE access to all concert performances inside the new private stage area (including performances by headliners, “RHONDA VINCENT” and “MARTY STUART & HIS FABULOUS SUPERLATIVES.”

General Entrance Fee:

You may attend the festival WITHOUT a day pass by paying a general admission fee of $20 per person at the gate.* 50% of entrance fees go directly to the Children’s Advocacy Alliance. This entrance fee is valid for a full day and includes access to festival activities (including food & craft vendors, distiller’s tent, & bluegrass music at Hungry Hollow & Grassy Knoll) but does NOT include access to the private music stage or exclusive Lounge area.

If you attend the festival under general admission without a day pass, you will NOT be allowed to bring chairs, tables, blankets, or other equipment into the venue. Festival passes are available first-come, first-served based on concert seating availability, and there is no guarantee they will be available for purchase at the gate.

Ground Rules:

  • Absolutely NO outside food/drink is allowed in the venue.
  • ID age verification for alcohol purchases will be strictly enforced.
  • Children under 12 enter for free with adult admission. Everyone over the age of 12 must have a day pass for entry.  Children must be attended by an adult at all times.
  • Festival day pass holders will receive identifying wristbands during gate check-in, granting them full-access to the festival AND private concert venue.
  • Service animals are permitted.

Bootlegger’s Jail:

You will be given the choice to attend the event as a “BOOTLEGGER” or a “REVENUER.” By purchasing a revenuer’s badge at the gate ($5), you ensure you will NOT be sent to our “Bootlegger Jail” at any point during the festival. If you are NOT wearing a Revenuer’s badge, however, you take your chances of being identified as a Bootlegger and sent to “jail” where donations of “bail money” benefitting CASA will be demanded for your release!

  • Reserved seating & chairs INCLUDED
  • Shuttle service INCLUDED
