There are two types of camping available at the Minnesota Homegrown Kickoff. Both types require each individual to purchase a multiple day ticket, either a Fri-Sun package (if arriving on Friday) or a Sat-Sun package (if arriving on Saturday).

Most attendees utilize one of many unimproved camping areas. There is ample space for first-come first-serve unimproved camping, both in open field and in wooded areas. The cost is included with your multiple day ticket. These are not individual camping sites, instead you drive in and choose your own space (please no roping or saving of sites).

There are also a limited number of improved campsites with utility hook-ups (most 30 amp), water, and some with sewer. There is an additional reservation fee of $60/site for these spaces (which covers both Friday and Saturday nights). Email info@minnesotabluegrass.org to inquire about the availability for these sites in advance, or ask at the gate when you arrive if there are any remaining available.
