2021 Festival Rules

We love seeing old and new faces each year, and having rules in place allows us to keep everyone safe and bring this event to the public every year. Covid guidelines will be added by the end of January and folded into the rules. All attendees will be required to sign an acknowledgement upon entry., and may face ejection without refund if they fail to comply.

Covid-19 Specific

  • Masks are required everywhere, with the exception of your own campsite. We will have volunteers who will monitor and remind everyone.

  • Attendees will get a color-coded wristband that indicates their comfort level around others. Respect other people's choices. They will include:

    • "Please stay six feet away from me at all times."​​

    • "I'm cool with arm-length contact with a mask."

    • "I welcome hugs (with permission)."

  • There won't be any gatherings in the clubhouse, and the jacuzzi will be off-limits (and shut off). All classes will be outdoors, and attendees are asked to stay six feet away from others during classes and activities.

  • Temperature checks will be conducted at check-in, and anyone registering at 100 degrees or higher will not be admitted.

  • If you are not feeling well or running a temperature, please transfer your ticket to someone else. Do not come to the event.
