  • Camp NCN
  • N8390 US Highway 12 , Black River Falls

The Grateful Garcia Gathering is now in its 10th year!

Jerry Garcia fans come from all around to dance and see some of the best jambands in the midwest at the 3G’s tribute festival honoring and paying tribute to the Jerry Garcia Band/Grateful Dead’s guitarist Jerry Garcia. It also marks the celebration of Jerry Garcia’s 71st Birthday, and it is the 18th Anniversary of Jerry Garcia’s untimely passing. It’s also a time when many fans pay tribute to remember other Grateful Dead members like Ron “”Pigpen”” McKernan, Keith Godchaux, Brent Mydland, and Vince Welnick.

Surviving Grateful Dead members Phil Lesh, Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann, and Mickey Hart are still touring and bringing fans enjoyment with their music!

We have leased the campground venue for Jerry Garcia’s birthday on August 1-4, 2013 – at Camp NCN Black River Falls, Wisconsin for our 10th annual 3G’s festival.

Be sure to make your vacation plans now to take off work, because we lots of excitement planned for all! YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS THIS! Melvin Seals is best known for his long 18 year friendship and musical partnership with cultural icon and guitarist Jerry Garcia and the smile of his that lights up the room. Melvin spun his B-3 magic with the Jerry Garcia Band for 18 years and in doing so helped pioneer and define what has now become “Jam Band Music”

Some of the bands that will be playing there are Brian Lesh & Ross James from American Jubilee, Afternoon Moon, Melvin Seals w/ Terrapin Flyer, Sanjay Mishra and Friends, Not Quite Dead, and many more.
