Article Contributed by John Hartford … | Published on Thursday, May 20, 2021

We are excited that the John Hartford Memorial Campout will be our first "official event" of the year. Keeping the tradition of the John Hartford festival alive, June 2-5 will be in memory of John Hartford and John Hotze. There will be music on the main stage Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Tickets will not be sold this year. The campout will be open to everyone who has a paid camping reservation. If you are coming for the weekend or overnight and don't have a camper, you will need to make a primitive tent reservation online. Tent camping is $12 per person, per day. If you are planning to come on Thursday, you will need to make tent reservations for 3 days, if you are coming on Friday, tent reservations will be for 2 days, and Saturday, tent reservations for one day. Wristbands will be issued at the gate.

If you have a current reservation, you must accept the Terms and Conditions in your reservation email to secure your campsite for this year. See your reservation email for details. With our new online reservation system, we encourage you to create an account so that you can view all of your reservations and update your information. During the event we will be sending out campsite renewal emails for the 2022 festival, you will have 30 days to confirm and pay for your site.
