Since it began in 2013, Red Wing has emphasized great music in the great outdoors. This year, the festival will once again feature musical performances on five stages, along with the region’s finest food trucks, including options for craft beer, cider, wine, and hard seltzer in the Blue Mountain Beer Gardens. Outdoor activities include a kids’ climbing wall and play area, organized bike rides and group runs, as well as morning yoga sessions beneath the rock towers at Natural Chimneys Park in Mount Solon.

On-site camping has long been an extremely popular aspect of the festival, with many camping areas already sold out. However, many great options remain with tent camping and for those looking for more luxury, Red Wing Glamping offers canvas tents and real beds, including hotel grade sheets and duvets, with an option of air conditioning.

Three-day festival tickets are for sale and moving quickly. Single day tickets will be made available for purchase later in the spring.
