"TELL ME ABOUT THE CAMPING!"
THE CAMPING IS "FESIVAL" STYLE, AND THERE ARE TWO AREAS - 'GENERAL' AND 'VIP'. BOTH ARE LOCATED IN OPEN SPACES ON-SITE, WITH THE VIP BEING LOCATED WITHIN THE TRACK (EXTREMELY CLOSE, IMMEDIATELY TO THE NORTH OF THE STAGE). ALL SITES ARE UNSERVICED, SO YOU'LL NEED TO COME PREPARED AS THERE ARE NO POWER/WATER/SEWER HOOKUPS FOR CAMPER TRAILERS.
"HOW MANY PEOPLE WILL BE ALLOWED TO CAMP? WILL IT BE PACKED?"
THIS IS OUR FIRST YEAR ON THIS SITE, SO WHILE WE'RE LEARNING THE SWEET SPOT - WE'RE STAYING SAFE AND LIMITING THE NUMBER SOLD. EXPECT A PARTY - A COMFORTABLE ONE!
"HOW BIG ARE THE CAMPSITES?"
THE SPACE ALLOTTED FOR EACH CAMPSITE IS ROUGHLY 25'x40' IN VIP CAMPING AND 20'x30' IN GENERAL CAMPING, BUT THIS WILL VARY SOMEWHAT.
"THERE'S A GROUP OF US THAT WANT TO CAMP TOGETHER. HOW DOES THAT WORK?"
EACH PERSON CAMPING NEEDS TO HAVE A TICKET THAT INCLUDES CAMPING, AND ONLY THOSE WITH CAMPING ACCESS TICKETS WILL BE PERMITTED INTO THE CAMPING AREAS. IF THERE WILL BE MULTIPLE CAMPERS AND/OR TENTS, WE STRONGLY ADVISE COORDINATING WITH YOUR GROUP TO ARRIVE TOGEHTER. ON-SITE STAFF WILL NOT PERMIT "SAVING SPACE" FOR FRIENDS ARRIVING AT A LATER TIME.
"CAN I HAVE MY VEHICLE AT THE CAMPSITE?"
ONE VEHICLE WILL BE PERMITTED PER CAMPSITE.
"WHAT IS THE EARLIEST WE CAN ARRIVE TO SET UP?"
CAMPING ACCESS WILL BEGIN AT NOON ON THURSDAY JULY 25TH.
"ARE THERE WASHROOMS?"
THERE WILL BE PORTA-POTTIES AND WASH FACILITIES LOCATED IN EACH OF THE CAMPING AREAS.
"CAN I BRING A GAS POWERED GENERATOR?"
YES. THE CURFEW FOR RUNNING GENERATORS IS 2AM.
"CAN I HAVE A FIRE? IF SO, CAN I BRING MY OWN FIREWOOD?"
CAMPFIRES WILL BE PERMITTED, AS LONG AS THERE IS NO MUNICIPAL FIRE BAN IN PLACE, HOWEVER WE DO REQUIRE THAT YOU BRING YOUR OWN CAMPFIRE RING (OR SIMILAR) TO CONTAIN THE FIRE. FIRES WILL NOT BE PERMITTED WITHOUT ONE.

YOU MAY BRING YOUR OWN FIREWOOD, PROVIDED IT IS CLEAN. NO LUMBER, NO NAILS, CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS, ETC. FIREWOOD WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE ON SITE. PLEASE NOTE THAT IT IS ILLEGAL TO TRANSPORT FIREWOOD OUT OF THE CITY OF WINNIPEG AND THERE IS A SIGNIFICANT FINE IF YOU'RE CAUGHT. BUY LOCAL.
"WILL WATER BE AVAILABLE ON SITE?"
THERE ARE VERY LIMITED FACILITIES IN THE CAMPING AREA - PLEASE BRING AN ADEQUATE SUPPLY OF WATER FOR YOUR NEEDS. THE SITE IS IN TOWN AND THERE IS LOTS OF RETAIL JUST A COUPLE OF BLOCKS AWAY FROM THE SITE.
"CAN I HAVE MY RV PUMPED AND/OR DUMP WASTE WATER?"
A SEPTIC TRUCK WILL PASS THROUGH THE CAMPGROUND FRIDAY AND SATURDAY MORNING. TANK SERVICING IS AVAILABLE FOR $40 (CASH ONLY). IF YOU NEED THIS SERVICE, FLAG DOWN THE TRUCK AS IT PASSES THROUGH, OR PRE-REGISTER WITH THE CAMPING GATE OR SITE OFFICE.
"CAN WE PLAY MUSIC?"
ACOUSTIC GUITARS AND OTHER NON-AMPLIFIED INSTRUMENTS ARE PERMITTED. THE CURFEW FOR AMPLIFIED MUSIC THROUGH REASONABLY SIZED SPEAKERS IS MIDNIGHT. PLAN TO ENTERTAIN YOUR CAMPSITE - OTHERS MAY (AND LIKELY WILL) HAVE DIFFERING TASTES. IN CONSIDERATION OF THE EXPERIENCE OF ALL CAMPERS, FESTIVAL AND SITE SECURITY STAFF MAY REQUEST THAT VOLUME BE TURNED DOWN AT ANY TIME.
"CAN WE COME AND GO FROM THE CAMPGROUND ALL NIGHT?"
CAMPERS CAN GO BETWEEN THE CAMPGROUND AND THE GRANDSTAND, AND BETWEEN THE CAMPGROUND AND THE BEER GARDEN, AT ANY TIME (AS LONG AS THOSE AREAS ARE OPEN AND RUNNING).

FOR THE SAFETY OF CAMPERS AND AS COURTESY TO THE SURROUNDING RESIDENCES AND BUSINESSES:
CAMPERS MAY NOT ENTER OR EXIT THROUGH THE CAMPING GATES BETWEEN MIDNIGHT AND 6AM - THIS INCLUDES VEHICLES. ANYONE WHO NEEDS TO LEAVE BETWEEN THESE TIMES WILL HAVE THEIR WRISTBAND CUT OFF BY FESTIVAL SECURITY PERSONEL. WE UNDERSTAND THAT EMERGENCIES DO HAPPEN!
