About the Weekend
It lasts from 4pm Thursday (8/31) to 2pm Monday (9/4). Come for all of it or part of it.
Because of the site ownership change, some aspects of the weekend may be different from previous years.
We go very easy on organization. The music is spontaneous, when and where you choose to make it. We plan to have a few guided welcome jams, and maybe a workshop or two.
How much does all this wonderfulness cost? Not much, but the cost of admission is higher than in the past, due to new expenses:
- $40 per person for the weekend
- Kids 18 and under: free
- Arriving Sunday: $20
What about weather? Not under our control, but we've been lucky so far. Between the pavilion, and the big canopies lots of people bring with them, occasional rain has never been much of a problem.
COVID PROTOCOL: We kindly ask that if you are feeling sick, please stay home and take care of yourself. If you feel sick at the gathering, please go home and take care of yourself.
FIREWOOD will be provided and should be used sparingly so we don't run out. If you make your own firepit note that rocks and logs need to be COMPLETELY REMOVED and returned to where found by the end of the weekend.
DOGS: We do NOT encourage dogs coming to our event, but if you must bring your pet, please follow this set of rules:
• Keep dogs on leash at all times
• Clean-up after them immediately
• No roaming
• No significant barking
