The Lock Inn has been scheduled for two different Tuesdays this year, March 19 and April 16 at The Oxbow Hotel. The evening of each event will begin with a playlist created by Vernon and Carey playing throughout the bar and hotel property as guests check in. This will be followed by a six-course dinner crafted in collaboration with Chef Nathan Berg. During dinner, Vernon and Carey will play a set at the Oxbow’s restaurant The Lakely.
Special guests are also expected to join in the festivities with Vernon and Carey later in the evening.
Each Lock Inn date will only sell 30 packages in an attempt to keep the events intimate and special. Packages include an overnight stay for exactly two guests per room (no more, no less), a limited-edition poster, morning yoga in The Gallery and brunch from a prix fixe menu.
Packages start at $300 per person and go on sale Friday February 15 at 10 a.m. CT. They are expected to sell out rapidly and will be sold online only on a first-come, first-served basis.
While Eaux Claires Music & Arts Festival will be taking a hiatus for 2019, Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon and his bandmate Sean Carey will be hosting their second annual Lock Inn. Last year’s event went so well that they decided to bring it back for a second year.
And if this event isn’t enough for Bon Iver fans, the band will also be headlining Summerfest this year for the first time ever.
