Experience The Beer
With nearly the entire festival located at South Main in Buena Vista you have multiple options for on-site accommodations. Grab a room at the Surf Hotel or Surf Chateau or reserve one of our camping spaces.
South Main will setup tent and RV sites on land just a short walk to the Rapids and Grass Beer Festival grounds and the banks of the Arkansas River. This will be THE place you want to camp to maximize your weekend at the Rapids and Grass beer festival due to proximity to the venues and the community of fellow beer and bluegrass lovers that you’ll be joined by in the camping area. There will be limited spots available so reserve early.
Our new camping area is located a quick walk down the river path from the festival venue. We will offer standard sites and VIP riverside sites. Riverside sites will be extremely limited so reserve early. Campsites are walk-in tent sites with parking adjacent to the field. ONE car per ticket. Enjoy access to plumbed bathrooms as well as porta potties, a potable water source, and easy access to the Arkansas River.
We’ll have two RV options for Rapids and Grass Beer Fest this year. Standard RV camping and VIP Riverside RV Camping. Riverside sites will be extremely limited so reserve early. All RV sites will be able to accomodate a 20’ x 50’ rig. No hookups will be provided.
The Festival Camping Area is an open campus, but you are encouraged to park your car or RV for the weekend and enjoy being a pedestrian in Buena Vista.
