Music, Pinterest fantasies collide at The Campfire Experience

Build a fire, book a band, and the people will come. That’s the true MO of the Campfire Sessions.

“It’s all about good people, good music, good beer, being outside, marshmallows, a fire, and just a chill vibe,” said Amy Gillespie, founder of the Campfire Sessions.


The Campfire Sessions are monthly, intimate, musical hangouts, typically held in the outdoor spaces of a brewery. Rockmill Brewing’s scenic headquarters in Lancaster has been a key player in the series.

Friends, families, lovers, dogs, and everyone in between gather around a fire to chat with new friends and lounge with the talent.

“The performances aren’t necessarily acoustic but they are much more stripped down and normal,” Gillespie said. “The band always swaps stories with the crowd, too.” 

It’s like the perfect backyard shindig that you don’t have to plan. They’ll provide all the tools necessary for you to create a “magical” ambiance, as Gillespie says (including a s’mores bar).

The only things Gillepsie and her Campfire Session fairies ask of you is to bring a picnic, patronize whatever brewery is hosting, sit back, and relax.

The first Campfire Session of the year is scheduled for May 20 at Rockmill Brewery with Southern.

Tickets are $23.16 in advance and $30. 56 each at the door. The Facebook event is getting more interest by the minute so you better hop to those tickets!

P.S. Make sure your good side is looking great because the performances are recorded live!
