Welcome!

Join us Thursday, May 29th 2014 through Sunday June 1st 2014 for the Eleventh Annual Stringband Rendezvous!

The Annual Stringband Rendezvous will be held again at Clinton Lake, near Lawrence, KS. We can’t wait to see you there! It will be a fun weekend of great music and camping. The Stringband Rendezvous is a non-commercial, private party. We don’t advertise or promote this weekend as a festival. There are no vendors on site.

We extend an open invitation to those who enjoy acoustic Americana music and who agree to operate within a few simple guidelines. If you invite anyone to join you for the weekend, have them visit this website or at the very least make them aware that:

  1. First and foremost, this is a family friendly event. No drugs or alcohol abuse. Kids are welcome, but please, leave your pets at home.
  2. Second, everyone is expected to contribute in some way to the event. If you haven’t pre-arranged with Garry to donate your time, talent, or some other resource, then we expect each attendee donate a minimum of $10 per day or $20 for one night of camping, $30 for two overnights, $35 for the entire weekend which includes three nights of camping. (Children under 16 accompanied by a parent need no donation.)
  3. Third, all attendees will need to register at the gate and wear a wristband while on site.

Read about the campground, check out the bands and schedule, and then register today!
