I sure would like the opportunity to combine a trip to a bluegrass festival and getting to know some of the AS community. I live in North Alabama and plan to go fulltime next spring.

We volunteer at the Boxcar Pinion Forever Bluegrass Festival every year and love it! Been doing this for about 18 years now. More and more Airstreams there each time.

The festival is at Raccoon Mountain just outside of Chattanooga, TN. The link is Boxcar Pinion Memorial Bluegrass Festival


Come on up...or over....or down! Promise you will have a great time!

I work the gate in the evenings, so I can always be found there. But I camp down on Music Row, I think it is site # 49. It is right across from the pool. Last year we brought the smoker and had it going.

We just mailed out flyers for this year so you should get one soon. Which site are you in?

No surprise

Mandolin Dave ( sorry for the third person ) likes Bluegrass. I go to quite a few festivals on the East Coast. I work at The O.A.T.S.( Out Among The Stars) Bluegrass Festival in Benton,Pa over the Fourth of July weekend. It is hosted by a bluegrass camping club called The Grillbillies. OATS has a website with info.

All -

Allison Krauss is actually headlining the wonderful FloydFest near Floyd, Virginia at the end of July this summer. I'm attending with my kids, pulling my 28' International CCD.

The on-site RV spots sold out within minutes of the tickets going on sale, but Black Ridge Lot off-site RV parking slots are still available at $125. Its only a short satellite shuttle ride to the main event area. It's expected to sell out again this year.

We had a great time at FloydFest last year with our kids, but tent camped near one of the stages on-site which made for a very noisy night, I'm looking forward to pulling my AS to the off-site RV campaign this year.

If anybody is attending this year and may be in the Black Ridge Lot, feel free to look me up or we might even try to group the Airstreams together for a sort of mini Airstream bluegrass/folk rally.

Cheers,

Jim Sheire

We do not have an RV yet. (Fulltime next May ?) We don't know how to camp, so we stay at a hotel when we go. We have always envied the folks who were camping at bluegrass festivals and that motivated us to investigate RV's.

I look forward to May!

I camped at Rocky Knob on the Blue Ridge Parkway last summer when I went to Floydfest. It is only about 5 miles from Floydfest. Lots of room and very quiet. Most folks that camped there went to Floydfest. I plan to camp there again this year. No hookups but they do have nice restrooms, although no showers.

Where the grass is blue

Hey y'all,
We have been discussing a bluegrass rally and some of the festival listings on the thread 'Airstreams and banjo's' , check it out. Verrry interesting!
Seems like lots of us like similar stuff, apart from being alumaholics I mean. I can't wait to have my baby all fixed up and on the road, banjo carefully stowed, on the way to meet some of the folks I have only chatted with online.
Our first trip will be the crooked road, but first I have to build a house for one of our offspring. We have three grandchildren due this spring so...... no wanderlust for us this year.

We go to the High Mountain Hay Fever Bluegrass Festival in Westcliffe, CO. LOVE IT!! It's a must if you are near there the first part of July. It's a fundraiser for their EMS.

One of our favorites and we stay at Grape Creek RV Park right there in Westcliffe.
