Festival camping is planned for the BADAS (The Beaumont And District Agricultural Society) fairgrounds, in the gravel parking lot of the grounds. Please note that this is a boondocking situation with no hookups and no services. There will be a porta-potty on site.
Members of the Beaumont And District Agricultural Society are volunteering to manage the campground over the weekend, and the camping fees that we are collecting are all going directly the BADAS.
Camping passes are $25 per night per camping vehicle – RV, camping trailer or campervan – and are in addition to your Day or Weekend Passes for the Festival. Spaces are limited and are already filling up (as of March 7th, 2022)
Camping is for Friday, June 17 and/or Saturday, June 18th, and all vehicles must be cleared from the BADAS grounds by 12noon of Sunday, June 19th.
If you are thinking of tenting, take into consideration that this is a gravel parking lot in the middle of an agricultural area with no facilities except a porta-potty.
Scheduled shuttle service to and from the Festival grounds is included.
You will find the passes at the Festival “Buy Tickets” button, scroll down to find the passes for Friday Camping and Saturday Camping.
We have a full house with eight food trucks/vendors on the grounds:
Street Eats with delights like the lobster grilled cheese; Paradise Grill with jerk chicken and other Jamaican cuisine; Purple Perogy; Hot Mess with her regular menu; Lemongrass Cafe; LadyBug Sugar Shack (Country Market Gourmet Foods); Jo’s Kettle Corn; and Big Softie ice cream. Most of the food vendors have pop, bottled water and other non-alcoholic beverages for purchase.
Enjoy fresh coffee from Beaumont’s own Brave Fox Coffee – so pleased to have them back! They will be set up in the Fiesta Zone tent for your caffeinated pleasure!
The Fiesta Zone’s beer is a selection of Sea Change Brewing beers in their oversized cans. We will post which brews will be available for selection as soon as possible. Other alcoholic beverages will include varieties of wine, coolers, and even the Margarita Machine!
Please note that the Beaumont Blues & Roots Festival is licensed site-wide so that you can take your alcoholic beverage back to your place in front of the stage.
You are allowed to bring small coolers with snacks, and sealed unopened bottled non-alcoholic beverages. These will be checked by our Front Gate professional security. All unsealed bottles containing liquids will be emptied at the gate.
Updated April 16 – If you are planning on refilling water on site, we are not able to open the hydrant and are looking at alternative options.
Chairs – Low back, short leg seating is preferred. If mobility requires standard portable chair height, position your grouping where your chair will not interfere with other guest’s views of the stage – please be courteous of other guests when setting up your seats and thank you in advance.
Blankets, tarps, etc. – by all means come prepared to be comfortable we only ask that you are courteous to other guests and only occupy as much space as you need and spread each grouping out to maintain social distancing. Evenings get cool so bringing extra blankets might be desirable!
Umbrellas and rain gear – check the forecast and come prepared for the weather. We ask that umbrellas not be used as sunshades where they might interfere with other guest’s view of the stage.
Sun screen / bug spray as our Festival site is located in the middle of Four Seasons Park. This requires walking in from Park & Walk locations, and the Park & Walk Shuttle drop off/pick up, so packing your gear in a way that you can “hike” or wagon it into the Park is recommended!
Service animals – certification must be shown.
Do expect bags and small coolers to be searched, and potentially receive a pat down at the Front Gate from professional security, so if you are looking to bring in anything that could be an issue, please take it back to your car before entering the grounds.
No glass containers except for baby food
No alcohol or smokable/edible cannabis products (as pursuant City of Beaumont bylaws) or other non-prescription drugs
Open and unsealed beverage containers of any kind will be emptied out at the gate

“I LOVE BBRF!!!!!
I have been attending BBRF for several years now. It is my favorite thing to do in Beaumont. It is a relaxed, safe and fun atmosphere for families, while still being a great place to hang with friends and listen to some great music.
The music is always good and flows all day. They have several great food trucks and merchants to check out while enjoying the tunes. They have brought some big names to our little town and there is something really special about listening to Serena Rider, Chantal Kreviazuk, The Sheepdogs and so many more in the shadow of our beautiful church. Proud to be from Beaumont.
If you have never attended this festival you are missing out! Don't be on the outside of the fence again, make sure you get tickets every year and don't miss this amazing event, right here in Beaumont!”

Performers were outstanding. We are so thankful for the thought and effort put towards the event as it allowed for some normalcy this summer. Thank you💗”
“I love this festival! It keeps going from strength to strength! The atmosphere is so welcoming and relaxed, a great festival for the whole family. I also love the variety of food trucks, vendors and having the two stages keeps the music playing all day! So lucky to have this festival so close to home in Beaumont. Can't wait for next year!”

“Such a well run, organized event!”
“Amazing music and fun for the whole family. We've gone every year since they moved to Four Seasons. We buy the early early bird tickets in December before they even know the lineup, that's how much we love this festival. We're going no matter who is performing.”
“First year going, and it was FANTASTIC!
Great atmosphere, friendly people and the music was top notch!
Definitely returning in 2020 🤗”

“Awesome line up , great food and drink ... didn’t spend a lot of time waiting in lines. Free shuttle to and from the campground was awesome !”
“Awesome 😄👍🏻amazing bands, had a fantastic time👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻”
“I loved my experience at the Beaumont Blues and Roots festival. This was my first year at the festival, and it was a great experience. The choice of artists was top notch and the attention to choosing a variety of artists was fantastic. I enjoyed that so many of the bands and musicians were from the Edmonton/Beaumont area as there are so many people making great music in this area. And Friday night's lineup of all female artists was big. That night featured so many powerful Canadian female's on stage sharing their talent I almost couldn't believe I was there in person.”
“We have been attending the Beaumont Blues & Roots Festival for many years and it just keeps getting better each year! It is so impressive that this high level, well organized festival is completely ran by volunteers. We are so proud that this event is in our amazing community of Beaumont, what a fantastic asset to the town 🙂”
“This is one of my favourite weekends every year! Great music, great food and even better company!”
“My first time attending Beaumont Blues & Roots Festival. What a great little festival! Awesome artists, loved the size. Easy to get to, great view from anywhere you sat. I will definitely go back!”
“I have performed at and attended an awful lot of music festivals over the years.
BBRF has a charm and spirit like no other. I plan on being there every year.”
“We attended our first Blues and Roots festival this year and I am so happy we did. What an amazing event to have in our own little town. The atmosphere was fantastic and you couldn’t beat the fact that you could see the show from anywhere you sat or stood. Our kids had a blast. You could take the whole family or just go as couple or with a group of friends. You’re sure to run into someone you know. How fortunate we are to have such an event each year. My only disappointment was that we never took the time to attend this brilliant event from the get to go. We will be adding to this to our yearly calendar as a must attend. Great value, great music and extremely well organized. Kudos to the organizers and volunteers that make this event happen! Thank-you BBRF!”
“This was the first time I have been to the Bluesfest. It was amazing! Fantastic music all around, an intimate set up that was both comfortable for families and individuals, great amenities, and well organized! Thank you to all of the volunteers who put their time into this event. I will be a big supporter in years to come! Loved the headliners this year and look forward to another great time next year!”
“LOVED this festival! It was my first time attending and I was very, very impressed 🙂 Will definitely be going again next year. Kudos to everyone involved in the planning and organizing. See you next year!”
“This is my second year going to BBRF. I love the family friendly atmosphere, the music is great, I like that it’s all Canadian talent! The festival is so well organized, you get inside the grounds, set up your spot and really enjoy relaxing with family and friends. Serena Ryder was amazing! I loved “Nice Horse” as well. Invite them back!! Thanks for the hard work all the volunteers put in too!”
“This was the first year that we went and can not figure out why we haven't previously attended. The musicians were fantastic, the atmosphere was great and the hospitality is second to none. It is a gem of a festival and highly recommended.”
“An absolutey wonderful festival. You can feel the heart and soul that goes into it!
All Canadian and all heart!”
“A great festival featuring all-Canadian acts performing a range of blues and roots music. Lovely location in charming Beaumont, AB.
Well run & organized with a good family atmosphere.”
