The Blue Bear Mountain Music Festival will feature the legendary Acoustic Syndicate and tethered hot air balloon rides.

The festival will be held September 5-7 at the Blue Bear Mountain Campground near both Boone and Todd, with teepees, hiking trails, nice views, and a main stage built in a natural amphitheater on the grounds.

There is plenty of camping space available at the campground, or a hotel in Boone is less than 10 miles away.
