Blues Bash at the Ranch
March 17 @ 5:00 pm - 11:00 pm$20 – $75
Three Day Musical Weekend Under The Stars For All Ages.
Blues Bash at the Ranch came about after the success of Camping with the Blues, held at Florida Sand Music Ranch in October each year. Greg Herndon and Paul Benjamin felt another blues festival would be the perfect addition to the ranch and would be held in the spring each year.
Camping with the Blues was envisioned and founded by Greg Herndon, a former member of the Sertoma Youth Ranch Board of Directors, to create a blues music festival at this amazing venue to help fund and keep operational this campground for our youth to enjoy.
Set in the rolling hills of Florida, both Blues Bash at the Ranch and Camping with the Blues are annual blues music events which benefits the beautiful and rustic Florida Sand Music Ranch, 85 Myers Road, Brooksville, FL 34602 located just off I-75 at Exit 293.
There will be a children’s program on Saturday, March 18, 2023, from 10am-5pm. Kids (and adults) LOVE our activities! Please bring your kids to the Youth Pavilion and sign them in by 10am. There will be hayrides, face painting, pinata, music, hula hoops, bubbles, make tie dye shirts,arts and crafts and more….
