If our event is canceled for any reason, including COVID-19, you will receive a full refund for your tickets.
If you plan on staying at the venue overnight, you will need a Camping Pass, Exhibition Pass, or an Exhibition Vendor Pass. The Camping Pass gets you a spot in a well-kept grass field in the southern part of the venue. This is perfect for those who would rather not have large crowds near their vehicle, as well as for those who don’t have a van but would like a spot to camp. If you’d prefer to show off your van, look no further than the Exhibition Pass. This will get you a spot near the action in a paved lot with a lot of foot traffic. If you intend on selling goods/services out of your van, you will need to purchase an Exhibition Vendor Pass. You will get a premium spot in the exhibition lot and be allowed to sell your wares. To sell from a tent instead of from your van, sign up as a vendor and get a 10×10 vendor space right in the center of the action.
