July 31 - August 1, 2020 MastersOutdoor Retreat in Houston, OH

Canoegrass is returning for its 8th year in 2020! We are stoked to build on the positive energy of our first two years at MastersOutdoor Retreat. This private property near Sidney, OH offers something for everyone. Our signature water scene stays alive on this 11 acre property. It features a 2 acre pond, lake zipline, blob, sand volleyball court and playground. It is conveniently located 45 miles north of Dayton, OH. Just minutes west of Interstate 75 in Houston, OH.
Canoegrass is a playing in the water, laughing with friends kind of bluegrass festival and campout.
This isn’t your ordinary festival . It is a backyard party where you get wet, wild, stomp your feet and splash your friends all weekend long.
Bring a friend, a cooler, camp and join our annual summertime reunion at Masters Outdoor Retreat.

Weekend Highlights include:
Lake front stage
Lake Zipline
Water Trampoline Jousting
Food Trucks
Massive Bonfire
Outdoor Showers
Nightly Happy Hours
Sand Volleyball
Open Mic
Campfire Jams
Pello Bikes course
SUP Races

We encourage everyone to take Friday off work, arrive early, set up camp and stay all weekend. Bring your own food and beverage or check out one of our local food trucks.
