Camping

Watch for details about camping onsales for the 2020 festival later this Fall.

For many, a central part of the Festivarian experience is camping – sharing a meal with new neighbors, returning home after an exhilarating day of music to share a few tunes at the campsite.

We offer several campgrounds between zero and seven miles from the festival. Town Park and Warner Field are adjacent to the Festival grounds (you can hear the festival from your tent) and the other options are just west of town, accessible via a free shuttle bus that runs late into the night.

See below for camping rules and regulations (such as camping is sold PER PERSON – NOT per site). Once you have your camping passes, be sure to start thinking about our green campsite challenge. Or if sleeping under the stars isn’t your thing, check out the various lodging options.

(As the official festival camping is nearly sold-out, here are several other regional campgrounds which may still have availability.)
