Old Time on the Onion is an all-acoustic, very informal, mostly non-performance gathering – all jams, all day, and all night for the exceptionally vigorous. Come for the whole weekend to camp or for a day to jam, listen, and take workshops.

The Music: It’s mostly old-time, but all traditions (Irish, Scandinavian, Indigenous, Baltic, Balkan, Blues, etc.) are welcome.


The Food: There will be a Saturday evening pot-luck under the big tent. “Hook and Peel” is our food vendor.


The Dates/Times: Arrival at 2:00 pm or after on Friday July 19 with camping through 3:00 pm Sunday July 21. RVers who want to arrive before July 19 can contact the campground at (802) 426-3233. Be sure to tell them you want to stay over for OTOTO weekend, and let R.D. know as well so that you can be assigned an OTOTO RV site.

The Location: The Onion River Campground is located at 61 Onion River Road, Plainfield, VT (located in Town of Marshfield, VT). The campground offers access to the Winooski (aka Onion) River with plenty of tenting space on the main field or in the overlooking orchard area. 

The Cost: $35/weekend, $25/Saturday, $20/ Friday or Sunday when you arrive. For RV sites with power and water, we take reservations or advance payment by cash or checks for an extra $15. We strongly advise that you reserve in advance by contacting R.D. Eno at

The Tent Fundraiser: Onion River Campground's Big Top tent collapsed during the winter of 2023. This past summer, the campground also suffered terrible damage in the Great July Flood. The Campground is recovering, but doesn't have the means to replace the tent. OTOTO needs a tent for shelter, workshops, and our Saturday pot-luck supper. Summit isn't able to take on such a large and unexpected expense by itself. Which is where this fundraiser comes in! Any amount you can chip in will be so helpful.
