“The Bohemian Family Ramble was created to offer the Quarterly, Fargo-Moorhead’s Grateful Dead tribute band, a fourth place to perform in a family friendly outdoor setting. The Ramble has since become an event where local, regional musicians, artists and lovers of music converge to make a weekend of beautiful melody,” Tracey Sand, Co-host of the Bohemian Family Ramble, said.
The Ramble has a reputation for promoting local and regional artists with music, camping and vendors.
“Camping is rustic with limited amenities. We have limited space for campers by reservation only; there will be a $10 fee. We can be contacted through Facebook or the website, bohemianbarnarts.com. Tent camping is included with your entrance fee. If you purchase a Friday only ticket, you are welcome to stay until noon on Saturday,” Sand said.
There will be plenty of space to pitch a tent and access to well water, but no showers. Well behaved leashed pets are only allowed with responsible owners. Around the barn, the property is a 7.5 acre farmstead, a shady grove amongst the soybeans, sugar beets and corn with a night sky unhindered by the lights of the city which would be a great spot to take a stroll and enjoy the beautiful camping night. Also, a short 25 mile drive south of Moorhead.
Deb Jenkins will be providing food with vegan and gluten-free options. There will be a variety of Artisans and Crafts. There will be no alcohol sold on the premises; however, you may bring your own as well as own food if you are of age, please remember to bring your ID card.
Michael Pavlicek and Tracey Sand, hosts of the Bohemian Family Ramble, introduced the music performance for the event. “This year, we will have multiple genres of music, everything from American folk to high energy jam bands hailing from Fargo-Moorhead, Detroit Lakes, Grand Forks, Minneapolis and as far away as Norfolk, Nebraska. To find out more information, our Facebook site: Bohemian Barn is highlighting musicians on both the Bohemian Barn page and inside the 5th annual Bohemian Family Ramble event. The lineup for Friday, August 3rd starting at 6 p.m. is the Moody River Band, Mark Grundhoefer and Chris Castino from the Big Wu, Kapeesh and Hardwood Groove with 2 sets ending at 2 a.m. We will have vendors on site: food with vegetarian and gluten-free options, hand-blown glass demonstrations, caricatures, ceramics, metal art and more.”
You will notice that the prices are different for each day due to the fact that on Friday, August 3rd, the music starts from 6 p.m. and they will have 4 bands performing. On Saturday, August 4th, the music begins at noon and they will have 10 bands on 2 stages without overlapping times. Both nights, the music will end by 2 a.m.
“The first and foremost thing to remember before people come out to enjoy themselves is that we ask all guests of our farm to act respectfully and look out for one another. We would like to think of ourselves and everyone who attends as extended family. Tickets will be sold at the gate, cash only, we do not have an ATM on site. We do encourage camping,” Sand said. “This project has been a labour of love for our deep appreciation of the arts. We invite you to join us in our vision by helping create a strong community by fostering and promoting the talents of local artists, musicians and entrepreneurs. We would like to have you as our guests!”
