1100 Acres to Play In
Twenty of them are the free-form campground
The dates are in April, June, August and October, each Friday and Saturday of April 23-24, June 4-5, August 27- 28. and October 29-30 – Halloween Weekend.
Not a Festival – Rather a Community of Bluegrass Pickers
Vince May, the volunteer jams organizer says, “Please keep in mind that these are not music festivals with paid performers, rather these are informal community “jams” with both dedicated and learning Bluegrass pickers coming together for weekends of music, fun and a beverage or three.”
Pickers are free-form in the Campground. As always.
The camp ground sits in the lee of the mountains of the Blue Ridge, 11 miles west of Madison, VA, surrounded by 1100 acres of farm with animals, horses, meadow, forest and home style southern cooking at the Lodge.

Friday- Saturday Nights
The jam weekends get tuned up for picking on the Friday night and continue through Saturday night with a leisurely pack up of RV and car on Sunday.
Bring and Instrument and Join In
Please bring your instrument and sit in, bring a camp chair and listen, cruise from RV to RV, listening.
Not Just Picking
With 1100 acres, there is lots to do on the farm, streams, and mountains – not just picking all the time. Please pass this along to others you know and we look forward to seeing you for the weekend.
