Blues Bash at the Ranch
Sertoma Ranch, Brooksville, Florida
3rd weekend in March
Founded in 2019
After the success of "Camping with the Blues", held at the Sertoma Youth Ranch for many years in October of each year, organizers Greg Herndon and Paul Benjamin felt that another blues festival would be a perfect addition for the spring of each year. The annual event helps to fund the youth campground at Sertoma Ranch.

This three day event features an incredible array of blues artists and workshops brought together by the producers of the North Atlantic Blues Festival - a production company that supplies sound, stage and lighting for countless events all over the eastern USA. In addition to almost non-stop music, you can experience a variety of musical workshops, and each day is brought to a close with an acoustic jam.

The Sertoma Youth Ranch offers an exceptional experience for those who love camping. The campground includes a bath house, facilities for RV and tent camping, and primitive camping. Pets are allowed on a leash. Beer and alcohol is allowed at the event and is available for sale. Firewood is available for sale, and campfires are permitted.

A children's program is also included, which includes a hayride, face painting, music, and craft projects.
