all times.

Sound Turn Down Policy

We must respect the land owners and their neighbors, so there will be sound limits and quiet hours. Please read our official sound policy for the specific rules and requirements.

YOU VOLUNTARILY ASSUME THE RISK OF SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH BY ATTENDING THE EVENT.

You must read our Survival Guide in its entirety before attending. Much of what’s in the survival guide is common sense, and the rest is real useful advice, but you’ve got to read it all before you arrive. You may also want to check out our Supplies List, which outlines some basic necessities you will need for the event.

Pack It In – Pack It Out!

This is a Leave No Trace event. There are no dumpsters or trash service. Whatever you bring into the event you must take out with you, including your garbage. Our community respects the environment. We are committed to leaving no physical trace of our activities wherever we gather. We clean up after ourselves and endeavor, whenever possible, to leave such places in a better state than when we found them.

BRING LOTS OF GARBAGE BAGS! Shedding excess packaging is a good idea to do BEFORE you come out. Cigarette butts, pistachio nut shells, plastic baggies, wrappers, paper plates, you name it… if you pack it in, PACK IT OUT! This also applies to sequins, feathers, buttons or any other costume finery that may fall off (or be rubbed off) and left on the ground as MOOP.

MOOP: (acronym): Matter Out Of Place. 1. Anything on the ground that nature didn’t put there.

Just the LNT Tips

Throw out whatever you can before you leave the house. Remove wrappings from packages, remove items from boxes before packing, etc. Attempt to bring fewer items that will require disposal.  Avoid disposable cups, plates, and/or utensils. Don’t buy them ever, they’re bad for the environment. Bring your own cup, plate, and utensil. A cup with a carabiner attached to a belt is great way to ensure you always have your cup.
