Historic Wallace Blues Festival

Camping, Parking and Other Options

Camping was a big part of the Ritzville Blues Festival and we know it will be popular for the Wallace Blues Festival as well. This page, under development, will provide an additional resource for those seeking shelter in a tent. The superintendent of the Wallace School District has made Sather Field available for our overnight guests who prefer camping. The fee will be $10 per night. The area will be continuously patrolled by security. Showers and rest rooms are available at the adjacent football field. A trolley will transport festival goers the 2.5 miles between the camping area and downtown Wallace on a regular basis.

Those of you with SELF-CONTAINED RV's may park overnight in the large dirt parking area across from the Visitors Center. This is a five minute walk away from downtown Wallace on a paved path.

A PDF file of the Festival Line Up is available.

Two important details are not obvious from these Google Earth views, but will be familiar to anyone who has visited Wallace in the past.
  1. The non-motorized Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes follows the South Fork of the Coeur d'Alene River between Wallace and Silverton, so if you are traveling with bicycles, this is an easy and very scenic way to travel between your camp and the Blues Festival. Likewise, the north frontage road that runs between the river and bike trail is a low traffic path for all forms of transportation.
  2. The Interstate is built OVER the town, with the bike trail and river beneath it. Thus, even tho the festival stage will be adjacent to the Interstate from an aerial view, it is actually quite vertically distant from highway noise.
