Country Fest

Country by name and country by nature, this awesome festival regularly hosts big names like Jon Pardi, Cole Swindell, Chris Lane, and The Oak Ridge Boy.

Here, you can camp out for the full three days, or pop in for a set or two. The best bit’s that your ticket entitles you to play on the zip lines, water slides, and inflatables at the 10-acre Clay’s Adventure Water Park too!

Country Fest also offers awesome camping and glamping at this awesome North Lawrence destination.

Smoky Run Music Festival

Smoky Run offers a super-convenient layout, with all the campsites, stages, the vendors, the bar, and the super-nice bathrooms all set at the foot of a ski lift.

Clear Fork Adventure Resort in Butler, Ohio provides the venue for all the typical bluegrass twanging during this event and also offers the chance to take a life-changing river bath during your stay.

Regulars recommend getting a VIP ticket to make the most of the occasion, but you’ll have just as much fun without one.

Jazz & Rib Fest

If a combination of awesome eats and mellow tunes appeals to you, take off for Downtown Columbus next July. This festival sizzles for a full three days in 33- acres of parkland along the Scioto Mile.

Expect hot funk, cool-vibes, and finger-licking meals courtesy of local barbeque pitmasters. It’s all happening on two state-of-the-art stages and admission is free for this one.

Cincinnati Music Festival

Making the most of this July weekend event takes some planning. Every year, downtown Cincinnati’s overwhelmed with an ever-increasing number of amazing sounds, great last-minute parties, and street-eats beyond compare.

The event started way back in 1962 as a jazz showcase but now it’s R&B through and through. Even Snoop Dogg and Janet Jackson have joined this exciting event before, so don’t miss your chance.
