Welcome Again to the John Hartford Memorial Pageant – Arrival & Tenting data and extra


The Long Hot Summer (Festival) Days are finally here! It’s been 1,095 days since we all gathered in June 2019 to celebrate your festival’s namesake, John Hartford. We are in full jubilation mode and excited that you will be stepping into the new and much larger venue at Lawrence County Recreational Park in Springville, IN next week. We have over 30 bands to ease the “vamps in the middle” of your musical tastes. We believe this roster of talent is as eclectic and diverse as John Hartford. Click here to see the full lineup and Click here to see the hourly stage plan. If you’re craving some more music, don’t forget all the wonderful campgrounds that take place 24/7 throughout the park. Bring an instrument and join the jam, okay?

Tickets are still on sale and will also be available at the box office. Save some money and time and grab a ticket or two now by clicking here. Full festival tickets, single day tickets for Thursday, Friday and Saturday as well as the new Friday/Saturday combo ticket are available. Camping on site? Our new location is much larger and we still have many primitive pitches open for RVs and tents. You are that event. We always ask that you bring someone you love, and you did. Please continue. Our laid back groove and loving spirit have stayed, because that is what we all strive for. We have an attendance cap because we don’t want chaos. We are a family friendly, kid friendly, dog friendly, jam friendly, just plain friendly festival.

Save some money and grab a full festival ticket as soon as possible. You will not regret it. Don’t forget to bring your friends, we are a family friendly, kid friendly, dog friendly, jam friendly, just plain friendly festival.

Single day tickets for Thursday, Friday and Saturday are now available. No Wednesday single day tickets are sold. Only a limited number of day passes are sold for each day and no camping day passes are sold. We limit the number of people in the park so that you still have enough leeway. Can’t you do the whole shindig? Never been to the festival and curious about all the positive excitement? Perhaps a single-day ticket is just right for you. If you’re in it for the long haul (and you should be), snag a full festival ticket and attend all four days of music and camaraderie under the stars of Springville, IN.

New for 2022 is a special combination ticket for Friday and Saturday. Unlike single day tickets, this special combination ticket includes free primitive camping. We’ve listened to your feedback and many fans have asked for an option that would allow them to attend camp for two days. If that’s you, grab the new Friday and Saturday Primitive Camping combo ticket.
