Buttermilk Jamboree is a weekend that your family will be talking about for months and years to come. A time to gather, play, rest, dance and retreat. A time to let the worries of the week fade away as you take in the whispers of the pines, the joy of the crowd, the smells and tastes of the food and the freedom in community.
A musical festival is only as good as its artists, and Buttermilk attracts a diverse and eclectic group. Past headliners have included: Las Cafeteras, Nikki Hill, May Erlewine, and Donna and the Buffalo.
We are proud to be one of the most family-friendly music festivals in the area. A designated family camp area, a kid’s music stage, as well as a huge variety of activities will make this a weekend your family will talk about for months and years to come.
Located on the sprawling grounds of the 300+ acres of Circle Pines, jamboree attendees typically enjoy camping for the weekend or renting one of the onsite cabins. Take a dip in the lake, go mushroom hunting or join the Folk School workshops to learn something new.
It truly takes a village to make Buttermilk what it is. Get involved as a musical artist, a vendor or a volunteer or a workshop leader. Every person at Buttermilk has something to offer to the world, and the beauty of the Buttermilk Jamboree is found in what we can offer one another.
Want to jam with us in the woods? Have an amazing performer in mind? If you are a performer and would like to be considered for booking at the Buttermilk Jamboree, or a CPC member who would like to offer a suggestion, get in touch!
There are two ways to volunteer to help make the Buttermilk Jamboree possible. Volunteer beforehand at a Workbee Weekend to help get Circle Pines ready to host or help out during the festival and enjoy discounted admission and free swag!
The Buttermilk Jamboree would not be possible without the generous contributions of many local businesses, organizations and individuals throughout our community. A variety of sponshorship packages are available to suit your needs.
Food, craft, and non-profit vendors are invited to apply to be an official vendor for the 2023 Butermilk Jamboree. We prioritize vendors that source ingredients locally and have a focus on sustainability and just practices.
