Join thousands of authentic country music fans from across this Great Country for a weekend of real country music, camping, canoe trips, hiking, fishing, helicopter rides, country vendors, and Kansas City BBQ.
From the moment you arrive at Tumbleweed, you’ll immediately realize the difference between Tumbleweed and other country festivals… and it only gets better from there.
Located right off 69 Highway, perched in the beautiful rolling hills of southern Miami County and among a 4,600 acre wildlife preserve – including the 2,600 acre La Cygne reservoir, Tumbleweed’s festival grounds are among the most spectacular venues in the United States. After you park, you’ll be greeted with the option to take a horse-drawn wagon to the campgrounds or hop a ride on a bicycle-powered taxicab right to the main stage area.
More than two-hundred RV’s hug the Forest Camping area, offering those who prefer the amenities of their own RV an equivalent camping experience to the legendary Tumbleweed Forest Camping. Forest Camping at Tumbleweed is unlike anything available in this Great Country. Tent campers set-up tent-to-tent in the grassed- and manicured-forest camping area. Without cars, Tumbleweed offers a tranquil and social atmosphere that welcomes campfires, grilling and celebration. A designated quiet camping area is perfect for those who prefer to get away from the party, particularly for family camping. Mulched paths are lit by hanging can lights – an incredible ambiance that will live in your memories for a lifetime.
With a ‘Relaxation Station Pass’, campers can enjoy the amenities of shower facilities, real restrooms, resting bunks and charging stations.
Cabins are available steps from main stage with lake views and ‘glamping’ amenities such as running water for showers, restrooms, electricity and bunks.
Tumbleweed’s festival activities set it apart from the pack. Beyond the music, Tumbleweed offers Archery, Canoe Trips, Zip Lining, a Rock Wall, Fishing, Horse-Drawn Carriage Rides, a Petting Zoo, Lakeside Bonfires, a live handmade guitar build and country craft and food vendors. The adventures alone -without the music- make Tumbleweed an unforgettable weekend. The festival has also teamed up with KC Watersports to showcase stunt devils of cable wakeboarding – watch as they do flips, jumps and ride the rails in the ponds adjacent to main stage.
Top talent performs on a single main stage, enabling you to enjoy all of your favorite artists – without conflicting set times at different stages. The second stage tent features emerging talent and is directly adjacent to the main stage, for a convenient brief walk to enjoy the country’s best emerging country artists.
The Tumbleweed crowd is mature and respectful. We’re all a family – celebrating the best of real country music in the best country atmosphere available anywhere in this Great Nation.
The Tumbleweed Experience
Tumbleweed festival organizers are focused solely on the fan experience. We’re cultivating a unique country experience and growing almost exclusively by word-of-mouth. It’s no secret why 92% of last year’s attendees responded to a unanimous poll stating they were ‘Very Likely’ or ‘Definitely’ returning to Tumbleweed next year – and it’s only getting better from here.
We appreciate your interest in- and support of real country music and can’t wait to host you.
