    The Down Home Camp-N-Jam BBQ Cook Off is a reunion of Midwest bands, musicians and artists and families who come together in the spring, summer and fall for a weekend camp out to share their love of music and BBQ in a family style setting for all ages to enjoy. Reunions start on Friday afternoon with camping setup, orientation, time for R&R, fun family/team activities, a BBQ Cook Off with sampling and a potluck dinner at the main stage with music and campsite jams throughout the day and evening. Saturdays are relaxed with more fun activities for families and teams, a community potluck lunch and dinner (both with music), and time for friends. Featured artist performances start on the stage after the potluck dinner and go until midnight. Sunday mornings host a Big Breakfast Potluck at the Main Stage from 10am-11am with a final solo artist performance and then we pack up and bid farewell until next time. The musicians who participate in this "Family Reunion" are some of the best in the Midwest music community. They perform and join in spontaneous jams and fellowship with others in our big musical family just for the love of it all. It's comprised of Bluegrass, Rock-N-Roll, Blues, Folk, Americana, Funk and Jazz roots. Those behind the scenes donate their time and services to make the reunion happen.
