SOLD OUT! Bands at Blandford | The Bootstrap Boys
Our annual outdoor concert series is back again and this year we are bringing it to our main campus for LIVE music surrounded by nature!
Tickets must be purchased prior to the show. No tickets will be available at the show.
What are we doing to keep our attendees safe at this years concert series?
This year’s concert series will have a limited capacity of pre-sale only tickets per show. We are creating 12′ diameter social circles for seating. The maximum group size is 6 people per circle. If your group is larger than 6 people, plan to arrive early to get neighboring circles. Masks are strongly recommended, but optional for participants who are fully vaccinated. We ask that all participants continue to maintain 6 feet of social distancing and stay within designated social circles if unmasked. All participants, regardless of vaccination status, are required to wear a mask inside any building, including restroom facilities.
We recommend bringing blankets and camp chairs for your circle. Low chairs are encouraged for attendees sitting in the front and center circles. Attendees may bring your own food, but no outside alcohol will be permitted this year.
