Located under the tall pines and hardwoods in Wisconsin, the Blue Ox Music Festival welcomes thousands of bluegrass, roots, and Americana music fans to the heart of Paul Bunyan country. The Blue Ox Music Festival is proud to announce its 2019 Lineup – featuring award-winning artists and offering an exceptional experience for the true music festival fan. Blue Ox was founded in 2015, with the vision of an intimate music and camping experience focused on roots, Americana, and bluegrass genres. The three-day festival is a unique chance to be a part of an environment with so many notable artists in one intimate venue setting. The Blue Ox Music Festival fosters a wonderful sense of artistic community and has become a cornerstone of the cultural renaissance movement in the Eau Claire area. Blue Ox Music Festival at Whispering Pines Campground boasts 100 acres of mature forest and park like lawns with music presented on three distinct stages, (Main stage, Saloon stage, Late Night stage). Fun cultural events take place throughout the festival grounds, including artist workshops, morning yoga, and kids stages with activities. The variety of quality local artisan food and beverage vendors offers something delicious for everyone to enjoy. Camping accommodations include spaces for RVs, reserved family and quiet camping, and for those who wish to just arrive at the festival, enjoy and lay their head– there are “glamping” options.
