    DATES:

    August 2 - August 5, 2018

     

    LOCATION:

    Carpinteria State Beach

    Carpinteria, CA 93013

     

    REGISTRATION:

    Registration for camping is Thursday and Friday, from 2pm-7pm.

    What You Need to Know if Camping

    Registrations for camping are due by July 15th, 2018. There will be no day-of registration available, so please plan accordingly and make your reservations now! We are expecting this event to sell out, so the sooner you can register, the better!

     

    Camping and parking is very limited at this event and in order to accommodate everyone who wants to attend, carpooling is mandatory and sharing tents is highly preferred. Ideally, each car and tent would hold at least 2 adults, which will help us maximize available space.

     

    We love dogs, but unfortunately due to liability issues, there are NO DOGS allowed at this event.

     

    You will check in at our Registration booth, which will be located next to the main entry gate to the beach. Can't wait to see you there!

    What You Need to Know if Day Tripping

    Maybe you can't get the time off of work or maybe camping isn't your thing. It's all good! We'd love for you to join us for the day!

     

    All day attendees must register and receive a wrist band for the event. Parking is NOT included in the Day Pass Registration. You will need to make your own parking arrangements or you can park in the Day Use area at Carpinteria State Beach for $10.00.

    Hotel Accommodations

    So maybe camping really isn't your thing, no judgement. We've set up discount blocks at a couple of local hotels! If you decide to stay in a hotel, please register for a day pass for each day that you plan on joining us. For more info, contact Rikki M.
