Blues Bash at the Ranch March 20-22 Canceled

By Florida's Original NatureCoaster™ Posted on March 13, 2020

The second annual Blues Bash at the Ranch is coming and you can bet it will be a good one!

GPS Festival Production partners Greg Herndon, of Mojoe Productions, and Paul Benjamin, of the North Atlantic Blues Fest, are excited to bring Blues Bash at the Ranch back for its second year at Sertoma Youth Ranch.

Blues Bash at the Ranch 2 is set for March 20-22, 2020

Sertoma Youth Ranch is set in the rolling hills of Brooksville, Florida, on the Hernando/Paso county line.  With 80 acres of oak trees, a creek, and a lake, the rustic and gorgeous campground has over 200 water/electric sites with 30 amp service, a permanent bathhouse with restrooms, showers, and a dump station. 

There is plenty of space to spread out under the stars while tent camping in the primitive areas that are easily accessible to the bathhouse. 

Campfires are allowed and the park is pet-friendly. 

Blues Bash at the Ranch 2’s lineup is outstanding: 

  • Diana Rein Band
  • Chris Beard Band
  • Doug Deming & the Jewel Tones
  • Brad Vickers & His Vestapolitans
  • Tas Cru & His Band of Tortured Souls
  • Dustin Arbuckle & the Damnations
  • Bill Wharton ‘The Sauce Boss’
  • Joel DaSilva Band
  • Gabe Stillman Band
  • Eliza Neals & the Narcotics
  • Deb Ryder Band
  • Harper & Midwest Kind
  • James Armstrong Band
  • PLUS:
  • Harmonica Workshop with Harper
  • Guitar Workshop with Tas Cru
  • Campers Acoustic Jam

The covered stage and seating area provide an intimate gathering place for like-minded music lovers with a large dance area.  There will be a fantastic array of food and merchandise vendors on site all weekend.

On Saturday, there will be a full day of children’s activities at the Youth Pavilion.  Bring your kids and grandkids (children 12 and under are free to the festival with a ticketed adult) and enjoy hayrides, face painting, music, arts-and-crafts plus more.  A playground is also in the campground for the kids to play on.  Get your kids out of the house and enjoy the great outdoors!

Single Day Tickets are Available

Blues Bash at the Ranch is not just a camping event – single-day tickets for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, as well as weekend passes, are on sale now!

Camping is not required to attend and parking is free.  This laid back, high caliber blues camping-optional experience is one you don’t want to miss out on.

RV Rentals, Campsites, and Hotel Rooms are Available

If you do want to camp at the festival and don’t own an RV or camper, we can help you get hooked up with a rental.  We recommend booking one now if you want to come for the whole weekend.  The water and electric sites are limited and will sell out quickly.  We have unlimited tent camping areas and space for self-contained units with quiet generators. 

There are several hotels located just up at the next exit from the festival if that is more your style!

Contact Roseanne Herndon of Mojoe Productions for more information about the festival, tickets, camping, vending and sponsorship:  941-758-7585
