Prepay ends Satuday, May 18 at 11:59PM. If you like to walk on the wild side and want to try your luck on that Sunday morning and you manage to get it done before I take the button down, congratulations, you win a prepay gate rate. I'm not getting up super early just to get the button taken down. 

Last year, we started doing meals on site via meal ticket during prepay. That was enormously successful, helped our lovely attendees save some money, helped our kitchen staff have meals ready on time, and ensured there was enough food for everyone. We will be doing that again. Please do not come to the site and ask to buy a meal ticket at gate. They are unable to accommodate you. They love you still, I promise, but they still can't help. You need to purchase the meal ticket in advance, just like the prepay rate. 

Gate does still include camping, battlegaming, roleplaying, general carousing and everything else. Just not the food.

Prepay for children (ages 5-11) includes a meal ticket for all kids. Whether you are planning to buy one for yourself or not, I highly recommend prepaying for your kids so they can eat on site. 

Yes, unfortunately, we have had to increase the price of gate a nominal amount to cover additional site costs. Yes, it's a pain. Yes, we are sorry. No, there really isn't anything we can do about it. The county revamped how they rent out the site. For next year, if you have suggestions of other sites we can look at, please send them to

Teepees are available for rental! In the past they were $90, but this year, they will be only $75! Get them while they last.

If you are bringing children for whom you are not the legal guardian, please bring with you an affidavit of temporary guardianship so you can make medical decisions for them if needs be. One is available for download here:


We also need everyone to have on file either a digital waiver or a paper one. If you would prefer a paper one, please fill it out and bring it with you. That can be found here:

Please note that if you don't want to use a PayPal account to check out, that option shows up as a gray button that says "Check out" and underneath, "Pay without PayPal."

Teepees: $75
