Please note, the festival gates for new and returning entrants can be very busy on the Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of the festival. If you can, we recommend not leaving the show site on those days as you could have a long wait returning to the festival grounds due to increased attendance this year. We encourage you to load up on supplies before you come or utilize the general store on site for anything you may have forgotten.
