Competitor Site Options
If you require other space or site needs, we will try our best to accommodate you, but we cannot make any guarantees. Each competition site provides access to 110V (15 amp) electricity, central access to water, grey water disposal, garbage disposal, and restroom access. Each registered team must have its own site. Teams are responsible for their own electricity (generator) if they require more than the default supply.
Site Information
All materials must be fire–retardant including tent structures. All pop up tents require a minimum weight of 50 lbs per leg. Note that festival layout has not yet been finalized but will be posted shortly.

Please note that there will be a prize for the categories: 1) best competition team site (voted by the public), and (2) best competition team spirit (voted by teams).

There will be absolutely no vehicles allowed on-site between 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 15 and 6 p.m. on Sunday June 17. However, you will be provided with one parking stall (per team) in addition to your competition site that will be located next to the competition area which you will have access to at all times. Ample paid parking will also be available
