We're thinking about attending the blue grass festival in Blythe in 2020. Is anyone going? Where do you stay--on site or nearby RV park? Any suggestions?

We have been a couple of times and stayed on site. Go early and you can get a wood burner and supplied wood. Be prepared for lots of noise from generators as lot of rvs dont use the solar panels.
Look up Blythe Chamber of Commerce to get a package deal.

Blythe pretty much a homonym to blight which is what you get in Blythe. Personally, I would rather walk through a lion's cage wearing pork chop panties than stay in Blythe, California. I'd get my grass, blue or otherwise, elsewhere.

Made me laugh. I have thought about staying in a nearby rv park and come days?

We'll be there. We've gone for several years. And I agree with Ava - come early, get a spot on the grassy area and they will bring a wood stove and a supply of firewood to your site. It is dry camping, though. There are two RV parks just east of the fairgrounds that some folks use but most stay at the fairgrounds. I'd guess that there were close to 200 rigs camped there. One change is that in past years the festival was put on by the chamber of commerce. For 2020 they have turned it over to the fairgrounds to run. The band lineup looks good and if they get the same volunteers as in years past, it should be a winner. Be prepared for cool to cold evenings.

You might also consider Bluegrass on the Beach Festival in Lake Havasu on the first weekend in March. It is our favorite festival.

The only potentially troubling variable is the weather. They have two outdoor stages. One is in the race track. The other is a smaller shaded stage area. If the weather gets wet, as it did two years ago, there is a very large building adjacent that they moved everyone into. There are three camping areas. The grassy area that I mentioned, the middle of the race track behind the stage (I wouldn't recommend it) and a gravel parking lot. All are easy walking distance to the stages.

Thanks for the replies. I've tried to download the registration form with no luck. I've also tried calling--no answer. Hmmmm. $60 for the RV selection--does that include camping AND admission? Pretty reasonable.

The $60 is just for your RV for up to four nights (In Thursday out Monday). You'll need $40 admission tickets for each person attending.

I just went on the online registration and everything seemed to work. In fact, I just used it for my own tickets. I was also able to download the registration by mail form but I noticed a problem - they tell you to mail it in with a self addressed stamped envelope but they don't give you an address where to send it. I'd just do it online and print out your receipt. They have a list at the gate of people who registered but I always print it out just in case. Here's the registration page in case you need it: https://coloradoriverfair.com/bluegrass-registration?olsPage=products

Thanks. Is there a problem waiting to purchase tickets until the show? Does it fill up too? I was able to purchase the RV spot
