About Soo Pass Ranch

Soo Pass Ranch has extensive festival grounds that accommodate up to 50,000 people, including 7,000 reserved seats, and multiple campgrounds. Fully developed as a concert venue, the Soo Pass Ranch has a permanent stage and backstage compound, catering and production facilities including permanent sound towers and mix station. The concert bowl also contains 50+ concession stands, and locations for dozens of additional portable concessions. WE Fest invested heavily in developing the concert site, including bringing city sewer and water lines to the ranch, which allows for running water, and permanent rest rooms in the concert bowl.

Situated on the shores of Lake Sallie, and in the meadows and woods surrounding the concert bowl, the Soo Pass Ranch campgrounds are easily accessed through pedestrian underpasses beneath the two highways that flank the concert bowl. The campgrounds are well groomed, with lighting and permanent shower houses. There are multiple lane entrances to each campground, which allows for faster ingress for camping vehicles at major events.
