🚗 Friday Gate: This year the north side of the property will host our gate & parking lot. Change can be challenging so we are giving everyone a heads up to help things run more smoothly and so everyone can plan accordingly (e.g., Pack lighter! Bring a wagon! Carpool!)
For more information on gate hours, directions and what to bring, see the Festival Guide.
👫Welcome Volunteers: Greeting you when you first arrive these amazing humans will share valuable information with you, direct you where to go and maybe even help our gate staff with putting on your wristband! They are a helpful & kind sort. Be nice to them or better still join them!! Shifts are 4 hours on Friday for sober ticket holders, DM me for more details.
🌳 Scenic Entrance: Bonus!! As you drive into the north side you’ll be greeted by the enchanting screaming tree sculptures, in the center you’ll notice a sculpture that looks like two trees. As you pass it toward the gate you’ll see it morphing into a screaming head and then finally a heart. Peter, the artist & landowner said it represents “the Heart of the Forest”. Truly, a warm welcome to the land!
🎫 Ticketing: To the right of these remarkable sculptures, there will be an area for vehicles to line up for ticket scanning and wristbanding. To ensure a smooth and speedy process, please have your ticket in hand; either hard ticket, printed e-ticket or a saved pdf on your phone. Please remember that mobile service on the land is unreliable on a good day, so it’s essential to download your e-ticket before you arrive.
🚗 Parking: Our dedicated parking security team will be on hand to guide you. Please follow their instructions so we can make sure there is room for everyone & everyone gets to where they need to go safely. If you require accessible parking please let security know at the main entrance and you will be directed accordingly.
🚐 RVs: For those traveling with RVs, please note that we are trying something different this year! RVs will be parked on the south side in the field adjacent to RV area along the tree line by the castle.
We hope folks will come together and help one another as we have witnessed throughout the years of the festival. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we strive to protect our beautiful festival grounds and ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all. Let’s make this year’s Harvest Festival truly unforgettable!
See you there,
Gate Crew 2023
