Save The Date! Join us May 29 - June 1, 2019 in Bean Blossom Indiana, at the Bill Monroe Music Park & Campground for the 9th annual John Hartford Memorial Festival, "The Most Laid Back Festival in America". Ticket sales and the lineup announcement will take place on Monday, November 26. Just like years past, we will announce the lineup, and offer tickets, first to those on our email list. Sign up for our mail list by scrolling to the bottom of this home page. There will be a ticket cap. We listened to your feedback and will continue to limit the amount of multi-day tickets sold to just 2,000 Full-Festival Tickets. We want to make sure that you continue to have ample wiggle room.

RSVP Your Non-Primitive Camp Site

The campground and the facilities are maintained and operated by the Bill Monroe Memorial Music Park and Campground.  

RSVP ASAP! Anyone who wants their reserved campsite (non primitive) from the previous JHMF8 has until Monday July 2 to reserve the same site for next year. After July 2, any unreserved site will be opened to the public. If you would like to reserve a site with hook ups you must call the Bill Monroe Music Park & Campground at (812) 988-6422. We urge you to do this as soon as you can. These sites are coveted and will go fast. For any additional questions about camping reservations, camping with hook-up prices, or anything else regarding camping, call the Campground.
