Running water restrooms and showers are available for all ticket holders. Port-o-johns will be available on site around the stage and camping area, as well. Ice and firewood will be available for purchase on site. Vendors will be selling a variety of reasonably-priced foods and nonalcoholic beverages as well as crafts.

Are alcoholic beverages allowed?

Are there activities for my children?
Yes, besides the music, workshops, art and vendors, Face painting and other activities will be offered. An adult MUST be present with the children who want to participate.
