BonnaROOTS Community Dinners


BonnaROOTS is our annual locally-sourced, feast under the stars, supporting grassroots causes—Oxfam America and Eat for Equity. VERY special guests join us for an unforgettable meal on the farm.. Last year people found themselves sitting next to Bonnaroo co-founders, Bonnaroo producers, artists, activists and an assortment of Bonnarovians with an appetite for soulfully good food.

Together, you'll eat, drink, and raise thousands of dollars for the greater good. You'll enjoy a southern heritage meal featuring local and organic foods from as far away as 200 miles from Bonnaroo, to as close as a few steps away with herbs grown in the Bonnaroo Learning Garden.



Thanks to support by YOU, we were awarded the Environmental Stewardship award back in June 2013! We have also won our 8th consecutive A Greener Festival Award for our efforts in 2014.


Our Sustainable Vendor rewards are the easiest way for you to eat with your consciousness. Stay tuned for information about our 2016 Sustainable Vendors. They will be back! Look for this logo and support our most sustainable food vendors. If the food vendor is sporting this rewards button it means they either are using more than 60% organic or local ingredients OR they've offset all of their travel. It also means that they meet they exceed the minimum requirements we set forth for all food vendors on site. Show them some love!
