Quick Tips

Bluegrass on the Beach is strictly a “BYOC” event (ie, Bring Your Own Chair). Scout out and claim your spot early. Chairs may be set up on the first day and left there for the entire weekend as a “saved” spot. Just make sure you take them with you when you leave on Sunday. Promoters encourage families to come. That includes your four-legged family members as well. All they ask is that you be responsible. Pick up after your pet. Keep them on a leash. And leave them at your campsite or with your other family members when visiting the food court. Yes, food and drinks will be available from on-site vendors. Artisans also set up booths around the festival site selling T-shirts, jewelry, clothing, and more. If you want a campfire, you’ll need to bring your own containment vessel from home. Smoking, pets, and any outside alcohol must be kept away from vendor areas.
