You will be able to pull your vehicle right up to your tent location beginning at 11 a.m. until 1 p.m, which is when sponsor load in ends. Restaurant load in will begin right after that (and space on the festival grounds is extremely limited) so it’s crucial you complete load in within that assigned timeframe.
Load out takes place from 10-11 p.m. Refer to your email for load out instructions as well as a load out map. Please note vehicle access to the event site will be allowed for unloading and loading only and that you will not be able to keep your vehicles parked on the festival grounds during the event.
