AN AirStream Rally with the Blues

Like no other Rally you've ever been to,.. GUARANTEED!
 

We've created a village of Airstreams in the Cotton Filed to add a cool new vibe to our event. Last year, "Lonesome Dan the Taveling Man" came by and parked his Airstream in the cotton field. This year, we and Lonesome Dan is takin it to a whole new level.

We've designated 32 spots for different size Airstreams and other approved vintage trailers. To reserve your spot contact Lonesome Dan via the Contact Form at the bottom of this page. 

Cost: $75 per trailer

 

Our Airstream Village is a Boondocking Experience.  Shackdale is a "sharecroppers compound" located in an actual cotton field outside of Clarksdale, Mississippi. We take great care to preserve the land and the atmosphere for our visitors. To ensure we maintain a festival atmosphere we've taken great care to design our trailer component so it enhances the experience.

Here's how it works...

Arrival and Setup

All Airstreamer's should plan to arrive Thursday or before 10AM Friday morning. Your spot will be designated based on the size of your trailer. We've designed the village to group similar size trailers. After you've setup, your tow vehicle will be moved to our overnight parking lot. No Tow vehicles will be allowed in the village during the event. 

Some of the smaller trailers will need to be disconnected and placed using our tractor. 

Outdoor furnishings will be limited to seating only. No playpens, dog pens or other clutter will be allowed in the village.

Ammenities

There is NO water, NO Power and NO Sewer at your campsite. This is a unique Boondocking experience with great views and great atmosphere and we wanna keep it that way.

Water is available nearby to fill your tanks upon arrival. Once setup, you will not have access to water. 

A Sewer Dump Station is available when you leave. We will be coordinating depart times so we don't create a congestion.

The Sun, the Music and your Mind are the only power available at your site. The Cotton Field has great exposure to the sun. This is the perfect opportunity to bring your solar panels and enjoy clean fresh renewable power.

Quiet generators will be allowed between the hours of 9AM and 9PM but MUST BE OFF at night. We've designed the village so generators can be located on the perimeter and the mufflers faced AWAY for the event. Any noticeably loud will be shut off by our staff without notice. 

[ NOTICE: We reserve the right to silence ALL generators during performances. Please be respectful of others around you and turn off your generator when necessary. ]

Reservations and Extended Stays

Your confirmed reservation guarantees  you a spot from Thursday to Sunday.

Chances are, if you've never been to the Mississippi Delta, you're gonna wanna see more.  Extended stays available for $20 per day.

Weather

We expect the weather to be COOL to COLD, but this is the SOUTH. The weather can be freezing to hot and maybe ALL OF THE ABOVE in December. We'll try to update the website with a forecast. The party will go on regardless of the weather.
