36th Annual Winthrop Rhythm & Blues Festival - Camping Pass
July 21 - 23, 2023
Event website: Winthrop R&B Festival
NOTE: If you plan on camping at the Blues Ranch please purchase your camping pass at the same time you purchase your weekend festival pass. We sell out of camping each year.
Located on the banks of the tumbling waters of the scenic Methow River, the Blues Ranch has plenty of campsites available. Here you can be near all the festival activities and amenities of the Methow Valley. The camping is located on the festival grounds and is only a one-mile walk to the town of Winthrop (or take the shuttle. The Driver collects a fee.)
All sites are on a first-come, first-served basis. River campsites are for staff only.
More information can be found at the Winthrop Rhythm & Blues FAQ's page
