The Blue Ox Music Festival returns to Eau Claire, Wisc., this summer for three days, featuring regional and national acts in bluegrass, Americana, roots, and folk music.

The eighth annual fest takes place June 23-25 in the northern woods of Wisconsin and will include camping at the Pines Music Park. The band Pert Near Sandstone, flagbearers of the local roots music scene, will again serve as host.

Attendance this year is limited to 5,000 tickets, “to preserve the intimacy and magic that Blue Ox Music Festival was built upon,” a press release states.

The family-friendly environment will feature cultural events such as music workshops, morning yoga and meditation, eclectic arts and craft vendors, kids’ activities, and a disc-golf course. (Children 13 and under are free with a paid adult.)

Two-day and three-day general admission tickets are now on sale, and passes are available for guests who plan to pitch their tent alongside their car. Reserved RV and tent sites are still available, although in limited supply.
