One of the best music festivals on the east coast, Merlefest, will be held in Wilksboro, NC April 26-29. Check out the website, www.merlefest.org to see the great lineup.

Are any other Airstreamers planning on going? I am going and will be dry camping in the North Wilksboro Fire Dept campground, not sewerfest, presently unless I come up with something better.

If you're in the midwest you might want to consider the Walnut Valley Music Festival in Winfield, Kansas. We have attended this festival since the early '90's and always have a great time. The weather is unpredictable, so bring summer gear, rain gear and a coat or two. There are limited spaces with electricity, but many spaces with no hookups. We tend to boondock at the festival and use the generator to charge the batteries and we tote in water.

Many years ago. Camped in a popup. We had a great time, but it's been many, many years since we attended this festival.

For you west coast folks... The 4 and 20 Blackbird Music Festival is back for 2012, located in Weed NorCal, one hour south of Oregon. Go to www.4and20festival.com for details. Looks like they are trying to get more RV people to go to the festival.

There is a Bluegrass Festival at the Fairgrounds in Blythe, CA January 20, 21, 22, 2012. Dry camp at the Fairgrounds. We camped there and enjoyed this festival several years ago.

We stayed at Pismo Coast Village during the Jubilee By The Sea dixieland jazz festival in Pismo Beach, CA last October. Will most likely do it again this year, October 26, 27, 28 2012. One venue a short walk, catch the shuttle there to other venues.

Thanks for the update Trex - I was hoping that they would bring this back ... it's near where I grew up and I'm sure I have a ton of friends that will go (there's not all that much going on up there) -- if we can work it in, we may go to this!

Free Music at the Rattlesnake Festival

Every year on the 3rd Saturday of October, San Antonio, Florida hosts the Rattlesnake Festival. There are a wide variety of things to do and see at the Festival and not all of the activities involve rattlesnakes.

In fact, there is two days of music... and it's FREE! You'll find local and regional talent and lots of good people in a friendly atmosphere.

This is a low-key, small-town festival promoting wildlife (snakes and other wildlife are on display), listening to music, good food and a fun time.

Did I remember to say the music is FREE!

San Antonio is about 30 miles north of Tampa, just off of I-75 in Pasco County.

Hey Suzz... nice to hear from you.
Did you notice the Airstream on their web site pic? If you plan to stay at the Friendly RV park @ the south Weed exit... remimber, they only take cash for payment. I think The Bunny and I will go...last year we rode our bikes to the festival, fun going there, but that's a long uphill ride back to the RV park...can you say "bus ride" on the return. Hope to meet you and your hubby this coming August.

P.S. Last year there were three events that same weekend... mic-beer festival at the Mt Shasta ski park, Drum Festival at the Mt Shasta City park, and the 4&20 in Weed.

Hey Suzz... it looks interesting, but I think we are going camping at the Redding Elks RV for the week of 4th of July. Ride bikes, Harley's, and swim if its hot. Plus watch the Fireworks at Lake Redding Park. I would like to think of this year's 4th as a "Semi-staycation".

PS-The Last time I was in Quincy, CA...I was on a fire assignment, four years ago.

Music Festivals and Airstreams Townsend, TN

The first weekend in May every year they have Old Timers Day in Townsend, TN which is near Maryville, TN in the Smokies. In back of the Welcome Center is a stage where different groups play on Sat. until about 11 PM and change groups about every 45 minutes or so. Small groups also gather around the grounds and it is really something to see and enjoy. Bluegrass music going on all over the place. This town is also close to Cades Cove which is an interesting piece of history with about a 12 mile driving tour to enjoy the scenery and wildlife.

There are numerous campgrounds in the area. We are going with three other SOB's to Mountaineer Campground from Thursday to Monday. Great place for a fun weekend. May 4-5 2012.

One of the best music festivals on the east coast starts Thursday, April 26. It is Merlefest and it is located in Wilkesboro, NC. Here is the link to the festival:

www.merlefest.org

I am planning on going and will probably camp in the North Wilksboro Rotary & Fire Department Campground. I plan to arrive on Wednesday.

Would love to camp with some other Airstreams.

I've already put it on the list for next year. Unfortunately, we already have plans for that time (this year). Maybe we'll see you in 2013. Post it on the rally calendar for next year and see what happens.

This park is great for those in the SE. Several different venues throughout the year are just a beautiful place for us to meet up and show off our aluminum.
We've been to the Blackwater Music Festival and Wanee there and had a terrific time. In fact, I should go ahead and book our tickets for Blackwater this year. It's a great park, a great time and the volunteers are incredibly nice. I can't say enough great things about this place.

Hey Suzz...We will seeya there. We are planning to stay at Friendy RV also. But the Bunny said that she will not ride her bike back up that hill again. So, it looks like we will be driving to the event this year...approx. two mile drive from the RV park.

PS, They have updated there web site again, many more bands... Looking forward to meeting you and your husband, Rex
