Annual Sertoma Youth Ranch music festivals have long legacies, returning year after year. Since 1980, the Ranch has hosted an annual Thanksgiving event. Dinner highlights this popular three-day family gathering. The Ranch supplies the turkeys and attendees bring a dish to share.
With music an energizing backdrop, all Sertoma festival attendees enjoy a variety of multi-day performances, workshops, jam sessions, song-writing contests, other entertainment and vendors. Starry skies and sounds of the country surround overnighters.
Sertoma Youth Ranch is a sprawling 80 acres located between Brooksville and Dade City, Florida.
Established in 1974, it’s a place for children to experience a natural, rustic environment with an emphasis on culture and heritage.
With a nod to its Service to Mankind focus, Sertoma Youth Ranch is always available to children’s groups at no charge. Music festivals and other events generate income to support the camp. Thanksgiving’s three-day Bluegrass Festival is its main fundraiser with 100% of event proceeds going to the Ranch.
During this major three-day Thanksgiving weekend event, guests watch ten or more Bluegrass bands perform on stage under the large pavilion. With all day music workshops and a Youth Program as well as camping on site, many bring the whole family for a mini vacation.
Plan to join other live music enthusiasts and make new friends at a Sertoma Youth Ranch outdoor festival soon!
