Campout in the Pines

Campout in the Pines: Socially Distanced Music & Camping

Enjoy Socially Distanced Live Music, Camping and the Great Outdoors, September 24th-26th at Whispering Pines Campground in Eau Claire, WI.

Blue Ox Campout Lineup September

2020 has not been a typical year for live music. It’s been 14 months since we last had a full-sized Blue Ox Music Festival and we still have almost a year until we can have another full-sized Blue Ox in 2021. By attending this socially distanced campout, you are helping our family owned festival sustain through these next couple of months while supporting the performing artists and their crew. We look forward to bringing the joy of seeing live music to all of you, during a year when we all thought that live music in any setting wouldn’t be possible. #saveourstages
