Each year at the end of summer, we head to the southern end of the Sierras to camp and party with our friends on the Kern River, and you’re invited! Centrally located in the small, but friendly town of Kernville, Frandy Campground is easy walking distance to bars, restaurants and supplies. This is an age 21 and over event. Please don't drink and ride. Find more details here. Check in is easy - just bring a paper or digital copy of the QR code attached to your ticket to registration at the entrance to Frandy Campground.
NOTE: Tickets are non-refundable, non-transferable. This is a rain or shine event. We only have a limited number of tickets and they sell out every year. Tickets will not be sold day-of at the event.

Camping is first-come, first-served, so show up anytime after noon on Friday and grab a spot. Be prepared to share with other riders. This ain’t no motorhome party, so cars and trucks will be parked in a designated lot inside the Frandy property but not in the camping area itself. The actual camping area is reserved for motorcyclists only. Town is easy walking distance, so there is zero reason to drink and ride your motorcycle.
We will not ship you anything in advance. After purchase, you'll receive 2 emails - one from us with your order confirmation and a second email from firstname.lastname@example.org with your ticket that you can print or save to your phone. (Please be sure to check your junk/spam folder if your ticket isn't in your inbox.) Check-in for all guests will be at the entrance to campground where we'll have a gift bag plus other goodies for each registered rider.
