    What You Need to Know if Camping

    The deadline for EARLY REGISTRATION is July 31, 2019. Ticket prices will increase after this date. Registrations for camping will close on August 31, 2019. There will be no day-of registration available for camping, 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 on a first come first si.
