Stroud Preserve | Sat, September 16, 2017, 4:00pm - 7:00pm

On-line Registration is now closed. ON-SITE ticket sales will be available for $45, starting at 3:30 PM tomorrow.

Natural Lands is delighted to present Roots and Bluestems, featuring live music, craft beer, and delicious food truck treats amid Stroud’s rolling hills and butterfly-filled meadows.

Fresh from the Philly band scene, Man About a Horse and Sparkle Pony rock the stage with high energy, toe-tapping, new grass Americana.

Thanks to our friends at Victory Brewing Company, all Roots and Bluestems ticket-holders receive two free drinks. Additional beer will be available for purchase, along with fabulous food truck fare.

Stroud Preserve is a mosaic of once-pastured grasslands, working farmlands, and woodlands that serves as a unique site for recreation, education, and scientific research. Here, you can see the needs of people and nature in balance as careful stewardship of both cultivated and “wild” areas restores vital wildlife habitat while also protecting watersheds that provide drinking water for tens-of-thousands of people.

Bring your own lawn chairs or blanket. Please, NO OUTSIDE FOOD OR ALCOHOL. Leave your four-legged friends at home.

Event is for adults age 21 and over. Gates open at 3:30 pm. Rain or shine.


On-line Registration is now closed. Purchase Tickets ON-SITE, starting at 3:30 PM tomorrow.
