Do's and Don'ts
Do - Carry your state-issued ID if you plan on consuming alcohol at the Farm.
Do Not - Bring your pets. We love animals at the Farm, but out of respect for all, pets must stay home.
Do - Respect all others! Enjoy, don’t annoy. Please look out for each other. This includes all life forms that call the Farm home…the trees, the insects, the plant life, small creatures, birds and wildlife.
Do Not - Drink alcohol if you are underage. If you are under the age of 21, you are our future. You hold a very responsible position. We could lose everything we have started and everything you want to continue if underage drinking is present.
Do - Use the “butt cans” if you are a smoker. Butt cans are located throughout the Farm & have been painted and designed just for you! If you plan on attending other festivals, please feel free to take a butt can home with you. Take it to other festivals and help save their site too. Save your coffee cans & bring them with you next year. What a great way to recycle! Smoking is prohibited in the woods as are all fires.
Do Not - Run generators or amplified music. If you want music, play an instrument or follow the music & listen to someone who is playing one. The sounds of the Farm are essential. We want to hear laughter, music, wind & birds.
Do - Use your own clean plates & cups when possible at food concessions. This will save on cleanup duties, reduce trash in our landfills, & help reduce the cost of supplies for our vendors.
Do Not - Burn tiki lanterns or campfires at your campsite. Campfires are only permitted on the Farm at the Fire Circle, Drum Kiva & Silo. A farmhand will maintain the flames to insure safety for all.
Do Not - Be loud after 2:00 a.m. From 2:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. is quiet time. Please be mindful of families sleeping & musicians & volunteers who need their rest for the next day’s activities. If you are a night person, have a great time…just have a great time quietly after 2:00 am.
Do - Leave the Farm by 1:00 a.m. if you have a day pass. If you would like to upgrade your day pass so you can stay the evening, volunteers will assist you. Cars that remain in daytime parking may be towed…and that would be a bummer for you and for the volunteer who has to call the tow truck company. (You will be supporting the tow truck company however. I guess there is always a bright side.)
Do Not - Leave your coolers unattended. We have never had a problem with this, maybe because we are a small festival & the spirit of respect is all around us. Better safe than sorry.
Do - Visit “Vendor Village”! There are many wonderful hand crafted items & special services for your shopping pleasure.
Do Not - Let anger come into your heart. Breathe…relax…and know that if it doesn’t matter 200 years from now, it is not worth giving your valuable energy.
Do - Recycle! Reduce! Reuse! Avoid wasting any resources please! Bring a refillable water bottle, plates & utensils. We are trying to avoid any use of plastic or non reusable items but if you have recyclables or returnables, we have placed recycle stations throughout the property for your convenience.
Do Not - Allow your children to run or play in the labyrinth. The labyrinth is sacred ground. Walk the labyrinth with your children. Teach them the way of the labyrinth so they may walk in the light on their own. Once we are aware of its purpose: playing, dancing, praying, meditating, singing, drumming, anything is welcome.
Do - Purchase and wear your festive clothing. We ask that you please NOT wear that nowpopular clothing line that has “SECURITY” printed on it.
Do Not - Bring personal golf carts, UNLESS you plan on volunteering for Courtesy Cart Transport. Personal use is not allowed, but if you want to help with getting the elderly, handicapped & musicians from point A to point B...BRING THEM PLEASE but also bring a radio so we can contact you when we need you.
Do - Watch out for the little ones. Be safe. Be smart. Make good choices. Respect the land. Respect & Love each other. Treat all creatures only as you would prefer to be treated. And enjoy your life, enjoy this magical land & help build this wonderful community!
