Volunteer stage crew members will also assist your group in getting back to your vehicles following your performance. Allot at least 30 minutes to depart after you break down the stage as volunteers are limited.

All groups will be expected to provide a stage plot, equipment list, and any other relevant information so our sound crews can properly prepare for your performance.

Our festival goes on, rain or shine! In the rare and unfortunate case of extreme weather we would cancel the affected day. We are not able to have a rain date due to the location and permits of our festival.
