Can I get into the festival for free?

Volunteer opportunities are available, which get you into the festival for free. Click here to volunteer, and contact us below if you'd like to perform or present a class.

Can I come early, or stay after the event?

No one gets to arrive early, except vendors and volunteers. To stay after we pack up, you must make prior arrangements with the campground owner, Clifton Eaken. There will be an extra charge. Email him  for more info.

Is this a group sex festival, like an orgy?

The short answer is no. This is not a festival of sex; rather, it is a festival that celebrates all life-affirming acts, which can include sex (but also includes things like community-building and creativity).  We endeavor to be sex-positive , inclusive, and promote enthusiastic consent. 

Teepees, tents, and yurts are welcome additions to our Beltane landscape; however, we ask that you leave campers and trailers at home, as they spoil the immersion experience of being at The Nest. You are welcome to camp in your car, as long as it is parked in the parking area.

Can I bring a camper, teepee, yurt, trailer, etc.?

While previous iterations of our festival have welcomed dogs, due to new campground rules, we are no longer allowing dogs to be present for Beltane.

Are pets allowed? can I bring my dog?

We use all the funds gathered from the event to donate to worthwhile charitable causes, while also covering the expenses of hosting a 3 day festival (space rental, food, decorations, drinks, website fees, etc.). For those who are limited on funds, we offer opportunities to get in for free. 

Why are you charging money for a ritual?

The clothing we wear in ritual helps us to elevate our consciousness. We ask that you wear either white, white and red, red, or black and red. Please no jeans or clothing you would wear on a normal day. You also have the option to be sky clad (naked) since the campsite is clothing-optional.

What clothes should I wear for the main activities?

You will have the option to purchase food from our food vendor. Our Saturday night feast is included in your ticket price.

Do we have to bring our own food?

You are welcome to do a little or as much as you'd like at our festival. Some people just use the event as a backdrop for their camping weekend, and we're ok with that. 

Do I have to do all the activities?

Every attendee must indicate at check-in if they are ok with having their photo taken by our event photographer. If not, then you will be issued a special wristband. We ask attendees to not take any pictures after sunset.

What if I don't want to have my picture taken?

Refunds must be requested in writing less than one week post-purchase until April 15th. After one week or past April 15th, tickets are non-refundable.  All transfers to individuals over 21 years old are honored, but we must still be notified in writing before the event. If the event is canceled due to the pandemic, all ticket purchases will be refunded. This is a rain-or-shine event.

What is your refund policy?
