Check-In-Bay, a protected cove located on the beautiful Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees in NE Oklahoma, is the backdrop for this Boat-In-Only concert.
Every Labor Day Weekend, we raise the truss rigging, fly the line-array concert sound system on a floating stage and host America’s BEST concert experience on the water!
The Redneck Raft Out is a FREE on-the-water event, accessible only by boat or personal watercraft. There is NO shoreline or walk-in access! This year it will take place on September 3rd and 4th, 2022 from 12:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Load up your boats with your friends, put on your swimsuits and bikinis and grab your beverages for this FREE family friendly Boat-In-Only concert experience.
We have a designated float area in front of the stage.
Grab a group from your boat and paddle up, join the party and get up close and personal with the bands! We'll be tossing out FREE swag here all day! While in the swim area, please do not hang off of or tie a raft/mat to the stage or merchandise area.
For the safety of all, boats and PWC's will NOT be allowed to pass-thru between the stage and first row of boats. 100' either side of the swim area is restricted to authorized personnel and event production staff.
Please tie-up on a raft-up line do not just anchor by yourself or with a couple of boats. Encourage others to tie-up next to you and continue the line. Please be sure to drop your anchor, it helps maintain the raft line. We have 100's of boats coming in, so please don't take up space unnecessarily! Please have your fenders and dock lines ready before you approach to tie-up on a line. Make some new friends and help your neighbors tie up with you! If you are a boat owner, you are Captain of your ship and 100% responsible for everything that happens on your boat and for everyone you bring to the event. Keep this in mind...always.

This is a family friendly event, but we acknowledge that there may be some explicit lyrics and banter. We trust that you know what is right for your family. We ask that you keep your boat sound system OFF at all times during the event. Please throw your trash away in a garbage bag! DO NOT litter, we want to keep Grand Lake clean! Respect ALL law enforcement! Please make sure you have USGC approved personal floatation devices for everybody on board.
Whatever you do, stay hydrated with WATER!
Always have a Designated Driver for your boat. DO NOT drive your boat drunk!
Please take some time and look at this cove layout:
The White Circles are where the Sea Anchors are located
and the White Lines are how the tie ups will be lined up.
The Yellow Hashed area is OFF LIMITS to boats. Floats, canoes, paddle boards, mats and non-motorized crafts only. For the safety of our swimmers/floaters and swim area, no boats or PWC's will be allowed to pass in front of the stage.
