Guests will be asked to leave the event if they are found outside the grounds covered within the string. All guests are subject to search by security and anyone found with one or more of the aforementioned items will NOT be allowed to stay at the festival. Alcohol use by minors is strictly prohibited.

What is the deal with Shabbat?


As seen elsewhere on the site, there are Shabbat accommodations available. The Camping Trip provides guests with the opportunity to feel comfortable keeping Shabbat while camping. This is not an exclusively Jewish event, so understand that many people will not be observing Shabbat in a way that is consistent with your Shabbat observation. Everyone is encouraged to respect Shabbat publicly. There are no scheduled musical performances on Shabbat. There is a halachically sound Eiruv on the property, as well as a Glatt-kosher Shabbat catering option (The Weekend Meal Pass) for those that would rather save time and money on preparation, grills, charcoal, etc. The Weekend Meal Pass is also a convenient option if you plan on arriving shortly before Shabbat- that way you will not have to risk being without hot food on Shabbat. As is the Tent-Building option, for those that are worried about arriving shortly before Shabbat, this option offers a brand new, 2-person tent that will be set up and awaiting your arrival. The VIP Pass offer private, shaded camping for those that wish to have a little more space. There will be scheduled davening times and there is a sefer Torah available for leining on Shabbat day.
