Patron Packages

Want the ultimate MerleFest experience? As a MerleFest patron you will have Friends and Family access to the Watson Stage where you will enjoy all your meals and snacks. You can sign up for side-stage seating and actually be on stage when your favorite performers are playing inches away from you. You can access private restrooms backstage, and sit in our backstage eating area for all your meals. We offer various gifts to our patrons each year as well.

As a platinum patron, you will have reserved seating in front of the Watson Stage. Tabitha Hudler, our Senior Business Operations Specialist, will help determine the best possible seats for you and your guests. She will work with you through the entire patron process. As a gold patron, you will receive everything that a platinum patron gets except the reserved seats in front of the Watson Stage.

Our current patron renewal period begins August 5-23.
