Change to Tarp Policy

Please note: Due to overwhelming Festivarian feedback, we will be limiting the maximum tarp size for the 2021 Rocky Mountain Folks Festival: Tarps may not exceed 10’ in length or width. As in past years, we expect that most groups will bring smaller tarps, occupying just the space they need. But any tarps larger than 10’ in any dimension will need to be folded to fit within a 10’x10’ space.


Every year, the biggest problem we have at our Lyons’ Festivals is Festivarians parking in residential areas and in front of businesses. When you come to the Festivals, please park only in designated areas. There is a nominal fee, but it will strengthen the relationship with the town and its residents while securing the future of the Festivals. Thanks!

If you are coming to the Festival and not camping, you must park in the designated parking lot at the Planet Bluegrass Farm ($5 per day / $10 for the entire festival with unlimited re-entry). There will be plenty of signs to direct you.

If you are camping and would like your vehicle with you, make sure you have purchased a vehicle pass. Every vehicle on-site must have a vehicle pass. A vehicle is considered anything requiring a license plate. This pass is separate from your camping pass.

The parking area and campgrounds are serviced by a free shuttle bus to the festival. We encourage you to walk or bring your bicycle!


  • Camping is sold per person and per vehicle, not per site. If there are two of you and you want to have your vehicle or RV at the campground with you, you must purchase two camping passes and one vehicle or RV pass in addition to your Festival passes.
  • Only vehicles less than 18 feet are allowed in the on-site campground.
  • A vehicle is considered anything requiring a license plate.
  • Showers are available at the Festival in the Planet Bluegrass Bathhouse.
  • On-site camping opens at 6pm Thursday (view the line procedure below) and LaVern Johnson Park opens on Thursday morning at 9:30am (view the line procedure below).
  • Camping areas close at noon on the Monday after the festival.
