Trot on down to the 5-H Camel Ranch, a gem just outside of Jackson for the music party of the season. The dates for this year's party are August 16 & 17. Don't miss the opportunity to catch some tunes coming to you live at the John D. Hale Band Barn Party.
Chris Stapleton, for example, with his flawless vocals and impressive instrumental talents, will take to the Friday night stage with the likes of Smooth Roose Unit, Evan Webb Band, and Matt Stell. Combining rockin' country with a touch of tradition, these musical masterpieces will set Friday's stage and headline for an even fuller Saturday line-up.
Now what would the Barn Party be without the John D. Hale Band themselves? Closing out the show on Saturday, the party's namesake band will set the stage for what has become one of the area's most beloved music spectaculars. Also to be seen on Saturday are Powder Mill, Cole Porter Band, the Justin Heskett Band, Duke Leisure, and Jason Eady.
Enjoy the sounds from the outdoor stage as they fill the air. Kick back in your lawn chair and enjoy form a distance or head right up stage-side within sweating distance of the performers. Should you need a bite to eat or a beverage to cool down, concessions will be provided by local vendors such as Bel Air Grill and Dad's Hot Dogs.
For those that just don't want to leave (or due to the number of "refreshments" consumed shouldn't), primitive camping will be offered again this year. Tents, campers and the like will be permitted, and pre-registration for spots is not necessary this year. No electrical hookups will be provided, so bring a generator for power should you need it. Please don't bring your pets, as some of the barn party staff and guests will be the 5-H Ranch's own camels, sheep, horses and other 4-legged creatures that roam the place making plenty of animals already.
Alcohol will be available at the grounds, but as this is a family event too, we ask that you enjoy the party responsibly. No coolers will be permitted. Past events have offered designated drivers, so we look forward to that this year as well for the safety of all. That being said, bring out your good attitude and have a good time at this year's Barn Party!
