Eaux Claires logoEaux Claires is a huge two-day music and arts festival featuring terrific live performances, music, and crafts along the banks of the Chippewa River on 60 acres of farmland just outside the city of Eau Claire.

In year four of Eaux Claires, they’re reconfiguring the grounds, re-imagining the staging and devoting more attention to the one-of-a-kind experiences that make this festival unique. They’re enhancing the interplay between the artists to allow more performances per artist, many more collaborations throughout the duration of the festival and, well, more once in a lifetime moments. Expect to see unpredictable performances, hidden venues and surprise collaborations across a full two days of music and togetherness.

The festival, curated by Justin Vernon and Aaron Dessner, runs July 6-7, 2018. Tickets are on sale now, many are sold out already but you can check out the different tiers here.

For campers, Eaux Claires offers campground areas only minutes away via a free shuttle. Campgrounds will feature shower facilities, general stores, and spacious sites able to accommodate multiple tents. Camping passes are sold separately from all Admission Tickets and sell for $165, $300 for oversized vehicles.

If you prefer a hotel or other lodging, Eaux Claires is once again working with University of Wisconsin Eau Claire to make hundreds of its dorm rooms available for reservations at reasonable rates (about $84), also with free shuttle transportation.

The full lineup continues to evolve; get the latest here.

You can get to the event via I-94, U.S. 12 & 53, or Highways 37 and 93 (it’s closest to Highway 37 near U.S. 12 and I-94.)
