Camping with the Blues 2020

This year’s 7th Annual Camping with the Blues is October 16-18, 2020 set in the rolling hills of Florida. The annual blues music event is held Friday thru Sunday, at the Sertoma Youth Ranch.  This is an incredible three day and three-night camping festival located just off I-75 at Exit 293, at 85 Myers Road, Brooksville, FL 34602.

Camping with the Blues was envisioned by Greg Herndon, a member of the Sertoma Youth Ranch Board of Directors. His idea is to create a blues music festival at this amazing venue to help fund and keep this campground operational for our youth to enjoy.

Not a camper?  No problem.  Day and weekend passes are available

The Southeast Tourism Society has named Camping with the Blues one of the STS Top 20 Events in the Southeast for October 2020.

“We are honored to be selected to receive this award.  We were surprised and delighted when we were notified.  For the past six years, we have strived to create an exciting music festival that not only embraces stellar blues artists but also to make it family-friendly with a great children’s program and optional camping at a beautiful campground, Sertoma Youth Ranch.  Our event helps raise funds to keep this campground operating so youth groups from all across Florida can enjoy the facility for free,” says Roseanne Herndon, GPS Festival Productions event organizer.
