Tickets 2017

How much does it cost?

Canoegrass strives to provide a one of a kind experience at a competitive price. Our prices are similar to a state park camping weekend. BUT, you will get so much more.  Canoegrass is an emotional experience for many. The outpouring of love and positivity leaves no one walking away from the event disappointed. As you will see our pricing rewards those who want to spend the weekend, purchase tickets early and ride your bike to the event. Kids 12 and under are free with an adult ticket! Tickets are NON REFUNDABLE. Weekend tickets ONLY! No single day admission. You may come and go as you please and sleep in your own bed if camping isn’t for you! Gates will close:

  • Entrance gates are closed Thursday 8 pm to Friday 10 am, Friday 11 pm – Saturday 9:30 am, Saturday 11 pm – Sunday 10 am

Event Passes

Canoe shuttle service and equipment for river trips will be available for an additional fee!
