Festival Rules
(to know before you go)

Anchor 1
  • Gryphon's Nest Campground is a clothing-optional event space. The owner asks that, when you are nude, you do not go past the front gate. Any inappropriate behavior (ogling, comments about someone's body that make them uncomfortable, unwelcome touching, and other acts judged not in the character of our event) is grounds for ejection. Please make sure you respect other attendees and the community event we are trying to create.

  •  We value enthusiastic consent (loud proclamations of "yes", declarations of wants, and other respectful acts) between adults at our events. Do not touch anyone without their permission.

  • No illegal drugs, firearms, or weapons are allowed on the property.  While flame-throwers are a popular item at our event, they will be restricted to the north field this year.

  • Must be an ID'd 21+ year old to enter! If you don't have a valid ID, we can't let you come in.

  • You are allowed to bring in your own alcohol, but please do not bring glass around the pool. If you break a glass container, let a volunteer know immediately (people walk around barefoot, so let's avoid an accident).

  • Do not do anything that might disturb ritual and the sacred spaces we create. This includes playing loud music, driving on to the field during classes and events, smoking or filming/taking pictures during ritual, etc.

  • All attendees are required to sign a liability waiver at check-in. While we will take many precautions to make sure everyone stays healthy, we cannot offer guarantees. No waiver = no entry.

  • Clean up your camping area, and take trash with you when you leave. There's no staff at the campground... everyone who is cleaning is a volunteer, so please do not leave broken equipment, tents, canopies, chairs, food wrappers, thrown out food, etc. for them to clean.

  • Campers are responsible for bringing a tent, sleeping bag, toiletries, etc If you are camping in the loft space, remember there are no beds... just a floor. Bring a mat and sleeping bag, an inflatable mattress (no larger than queen), or a camping cot and blankets.

  • You are required to bring your own food, but you can use the fridges in the clubhouse or outdoor kitchen to store it (first come, first served). You can cook in the clubhouse (NOT the outdoor kitchen), but clean up after yourself.

  • Please do not leave fires unattended, and make sure all fires are built at least 10 feet away from your tent.

  • Cars are allowed on the field only to unload and reload camping equipment. They must remain parked in the designated parking area otherwise.

  • Please don't drive drunk; camp out with us instead.

  • Gryphon's Nest Campground, Coven of the Gryphon, New Orleans Lamplight Circle, and the Greater New Orleans Pagan Pride Project are not liable for any injuries or illnesses sustained while on-site.  

  • Refunds will be issued up to one week post-purchase until April 15th, 2023. Purchases made between April 15th and the event are non-refundable.  All refund requests must be received via email. Contact us at  This is a rain-or-shine event. Tickets purchased are transferable; we advise you to join our Wyld Fire Beltane Hunt Community page on Facebook.
