Wedding Venue


Bill Monroe Music Park is an historic park and campground located in the rolling hills of beautiful Brown County, Indiana. The park is known for its music festivals, rustic setting with many large trees and a catch and release Pastor Baggett Lake. Throughout the park there are several sites where you can have your wedding ceremony, host a reception, renew your vows, or gather with friends and family to celebrate your wedding anniversary.

Historic Bill Monroe Stage – located in the heart of the park, this historic stage has hosted national and international bands for over 50 years. The stage offers electric, minimal lighting, 2 dressing rooms, a small gathering room, small bathroom, and a wraparound deck. There is plenty of room for guests to gather in front of the stage to watch your ceremony, and then have a live band perform for your reception. Size: actual stage is 12’ deep by 34’ wide.

Hippy Hill Stage is nestled in a cozy corner of the park just off Pastor Baggett Lake. It features 2 small dressing rooms, is surrounded by 3 cabins and enough room in front for 100+ guests to gather for the ceremony. Plan your after party at the same location. The Rustic Cabins 6, 7 & 8 are available to rent for the duration of your stay based on availability. Size: actual stage size is 8’ x 16’.
