The 3 Day Festival at the Queanbeyan Showground is ideal for camping either in motorhomes, vans, tents or swag. We welcome campers and are very happy to make the experience all that more special.




 

DROVERS TENT CAMP IS THE PLACE TO BE!



We welcome all campers staying on the Festival site and this certainly adds to the festive atmosphere. The Canberra Country Blues & Roots Festival is a great event to enjoy entertainment as well as meet people and make new friends. Within the campsite areas you will meet people from across Australia and overseas with diverse interests ranging from country music to dancing to horses to motor vehicles in line with our mottos "Music Dance Utes Horses - Itís A Lifestyle!" and "Seriously Having A Good Time!".
So if you have a tent get some mates join in the party. Tents are set up at Drovers Tent Camp which is flat grassy ground. Bring your own tent pegs and set up and when departing take down yourself. If you have any other special needs please feel free to write these on the base or reverse of your booking form. The Festival camping site is "Pet Friendly", so visitors can bring and walk dogs and horses as long as on a leash. Unleashed stray dogs are not permitted and will be removed from the Festival site. Please note camping sites are limited and allocated on first come first served basis so make your booking early.
