Looks like there's not much activity on this forum these days, but I'll give it a shot... Very excited for my first Rockygrass and Rockygrass Academy. Just wondering if folks had some good food planning tips; I'll mostly be fending for myself so I don't want to spend too much extra money going to restaurants alone. Was planning to just bring along a 2-burner Coleman stove and a cooler.

Mostly just looking for suggestions because it'd be nice to break out of my usual camping pattern of eating too many sausage wraps and PBJ sandwiches, and to make some contact with some folks before showing up at camp.

Welcome, RwwL - yer in for a treat!
During Academy, there's a provided BBQ on Monday and Thursday nights, so you've only gotta figure out M - T - W. They also have a breakfast burritos for sale.

During Festival, there's lots of yummy, well-priced vendors - Sisters Dumplings, a Greek food stand, BBQ, Burgers, Pizza etc....

I personally don't cook there, and always manage very nicely by eating simple things out of the cooler (yogurt, cheese/crackers, sandwiches), go into town a couple times, and enjoy the vendors.

Happy Festivating!

RwwL,
Welcome and get ready for a great week!  Academy is as good as it gets.  I canít disagree with Ann Pete, at all.  Snacks, fruit, maybe sandwich stuff.  If you want to make all your food you can, but there is a lot of good stuff available. 

Let me know if you have any other questions.  Always happy to help.  What you in academy to do?  Iím signed up for novice fiddle.
