                         THR 5/5/16 - SUN. 5/8/16

BMSCC and it's members are proud to Feature:

For the past 18 years music fans in steadily growing numbers have savored Parkfield's natural beauty and peaceful ambiance. Every Mother's Day weekend finds this sleepy little paradise transformed into a veritable bluegrass dream. Nature's soothing sights and sounds combine with the soulful high lonesome sound of bluegrass music. It's an experience that almost defies description - live bands on a cozy stage in a backyard setting that makes you want it to never end.

Dozens of acres of flat "boon-dock" style camping sites, plenty of shade, and hot showers available.

SMOKING: No smoking in audience area

GENERATOR GOOD NEIGHBOR POLICY: For the safety and pleasure of neighboring campers and RVers, a generator diversion exhaust system is required for all onboard generators. The exhaust system shall redirect exhaust exiting above the top level of your RV reducing the noise and divert harmful exhaust fumes away from the ground, where they are often inhaled by neighbors. Please be very considerate if using an external generator. Some type of sound baffling may be necessary. Fumes can be a problem here too. Remember, your neighbors may be in a tent. If the use of a generator is deemed to be unreasonably loud or smelly by the facility staff, use of the generator may be limited &/or prohibited. Hours of operation are 9 AM to 9 PM.

CAMPING UNIT: comprises a campsite with tent and no more than two automobiles or camping vehicles (motorhome, trailer, etc.) -- festival staff reserves discretion to make determinations regarding overnight camping charges.

ELECTRICAL SITES: There are a limited number of sites providing low power service, no A/C or high power usage devices.  Only campers who purchase Electrical Hookup may camp in the designated electrical sites. NOTE: With the purchase of electrical fee, we will be coordinating your preferred electric hookup campsite using the contact information provided during ordering. This year, all electric hookup sites are pre-assigned. Assignment priority is based on the date that your electrical fee payment is received.
