Parking, RVs, Camping Sites

ALL CAMPING SPOTS ARE GREAT AND NEAR ALL THE THINGS. There are plenty of great shaded campsites VERY CLOSE to the stage! There is no need to scramble for a spot. Everything is close! Be chill, be helpful, be patient, and follow the directions given by volunteers.

RV’s will be directed in an organized fashion in one section of the grounds where there are convenient hookups. RVs will not be parked in order of arrival, but instead by best fit according to the length of your rig. Don’t sweat the rush and just follow instructions.

Folks camping with cars/tents will be directed to parking as well. Please be patient and know that all the spots are great, the crowd isn’t that big so it won’t take too long, and we are going to try to help you not get blocked in

Be aware that if you leave during the fest, you could lose your parking spot.

Please try to arrive by 5 if you can, as there will be more people available to help you. If you must come later or the next day we understand. There are lots of spots to camp - but there are lots of things planned you won't want to miss!

You’re Parked…Now What? Setting Up Camp…

After you pull in:

Food

There will be a big potluck on Thursday! Please see below under “What to Bring” for more information about how you can contribute to everyone’s enjoyment of the weekend:

Don’t feel like cooking your other meals for the weekend? A Food Truck will be on-site serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner on Friday and Saturday!. Don’t miss ‘em! Tasty, eclectic goodness!

Communications

Please be advised that there is no WIFI available and that cellular signal is extremely limited. Be prepared to be out of contact with the outside world. And know that this is a good thing!

What to Bring

Do Bring Your Music!

There will be opportunities to jam every night - keep your ears out and join in!

So! Bring your acoustic instruments (guitars, mandolins, banjos, violins, bass, etc), and bring your electrics too for late-night plug in jams. Bring hand drums!

Questions about dance hall electric jams? Talk to Don (you’ll get to know him if you don’t already) for more info.

And if you don’t play - no worries, come and listen, sing along when you have the chance, or just hang out and vibe with the musicians

Out of courtesy to the festival musicians, please don’t “crank it” in the campground while musicians are on stage.

Do Bring Your Own Washable/Reusable “Mess Kit”

Do Bring Camping and Festival Essentials

Do Bring Food and Beverages for Personal Use

Do Bring Contributions to Shared/Community Meals

Something to Share at Thursday Potluck

Easy! Bring a dish to share with the community. Main dish, side dish, salad, dessert. Home-made or prepackaged. Whatever your favorite shareable is.

There will be morning Jams!  

Orange Juice, Champagne, Other Juices: Please bring some juice and something to mix with it if you like for the Toast and Jams table. Mimosas? Palomas? Bloody Marys? We are happy to refrigerate juices for you. We’ll have some coffee, but that’s all we provide for beverages.

Do Bring Cash!

There is NO ATM. We may accept cards if the technology works. The food truck may or may not accept cards. CASH IS KING. If you purchase every meal at the food truck each day, buy a poster, donate for Jitter Jams, and buy a bag of ice, $150 should cover you for the weekend, and you could do it cheaper. Help us out and bring 1’s 5’s 10’s as well so we don’t end up in a change crunch. Having some extra cash never hurts. There will also be some art for sale and other artistic vendors.

Do Bring Community Firewood

What NOT to Bring

Vending

Guests may set up a spot to sell non-food service things like art, jewelry, clothing, and candy. Food that requires cooking or preparation (grilled cheese sandwiches) and alcoholic beverages are not OK.
