How it Works

Never been to Campfire before? Here’s some more info on what to expect. 

Dress Warm 

Yes, literal campfires are provided, but the weather on our central coast can be  unpredictable and it may get chilly. The concert will be held outdoors at the Jack  Payton Stage, and there will be nothing overhead except the oak trees!

Start Times

The concert will begin at the Jack Payton Stage at 6pm, but the event doors will open at 4:30pm so that everyone has the opportunity to share a meal around the fire pits before the music starts. We expect the event to end around 8:30pm. 


Unlike previous Campfire concerts, this event will be held without assigned seating on the open grass! Limited seating will be available, but we recommend bringing lawn chairs or picnic blankets. There will be plenty of room to sit, stand, play, and dance!

Come Hungry

Let’s share a meal together! Stationed around the event will be local food trucks and booths with food and drinks available for purchase.  Outside food and drink are not permitted. Also for sale will be official Campfire Concerts merchandise, artist merchandise, and s’mores kits. What’s a campfire without s’mores?

Parking and Entry

The Fairgrounds will not be a providing a parking lot for this event. Instead, please use the surrounding free street parking with no time restrictions. From Fairgrounds Road, enter the event at gate #5, at the turnstiles next to the Turf Club. This area serves as our “campground,” where we will gather and eat before concert seating begins. If you’d like to see a map of the Fairgrounds, click here
