Camp Lotus Jam

When you buy a CAMPING/ALL MUSIC TICKET there are three wonderful riverfront campgrounds to choose from (click on Festival Camping for details). Your camping ticket entitles you to three full days-three nights camping, admittance to all music performances, continuous free bus shuttles (main stage and night venues), and our musical river walk (see Schedule for all performances).

The Main Stage
Main Stage

The main stage is located at the beautiful riverfront Henningsen-Lotus Park (click here for directions). Main Stage music is from 11:00 am-6:00 pm each day (see schedule), with free parking within easy walking distance. There will be freshly prepared food and great beverages, tons of fun kids' (and young at heart) activities, an art market, live art, surprise tweeners, and a great swimming hole on the river.

The weather is normally great, with 87 and 58 the average high and low temperatures for Coloma-Lotus this time of year.
