Need to know info!

1.  Picking Up Your Wristbands

Everyone will need to stop at the on-site box office upon arrival to pick up their wristbands, vehicle passes.  Festival and vehicle passes will also be available for purchase.

Please be sure to have the following upon arriving at the box office:

Printed ticket – please have your ticket printed out and ready when you arrive.  The name on your ticket isn’t required to match your ID, however ticket barcodes only scan once and after that can no longer be used to get a wristband.

Government Issued ID –  PLEASE bring your California or government issued ID, as it is required to receive your wristband. No ifs, ands or buts – sorry kids!

After The Box Office…

Keep Your Wristband On At All Times – Everyone in your vehicle must have a wristband properly applied on their LEFT wrist prior to arriving. You will not be allowed onto the festival entrance road without your wristband properly applied to your wrist.

2.  Open Flames

Due to the CA state drought / high fire risk all open flame including campfires, charcoal grills and lanterns are not allowed at Woogie Weekend. On the other hand, Enclosed Propane stoves are permitted for meals in the designated camping areas. In addition, there will be several delicious food vendors onsite to keep you fueled and fed. Thanks for your cooperation and understanding!

3.  No In’s and Out’s For Car Campers

Car camping vehicles are not permitted to drive in and out of the festival once they’ve entered the campgrounds.  Upon exiting the campgrounds, car camping passes will be removed by campground staff.  If you need to leave the festival early, but plan to return, please park in the general parking lots for easy, painless departures.

4.  You Are Responsible For Taking Your Trash Home

Woogie Weekend is a “Leave it Better, Leave it Beautiful” event. All campers MUST TAKE THEIR CAMPSITE’S TRASH OUT WITH THEM WHEN THEY LEAVE.  This isn’t the kind of festival where you trash the place and rely on festival staff to pick it up for you. Monitoring and reducing waste creates awareness and encourages us to take care of the communities we live in and the planet we live on. The best way to do this is to plan ahead and bring as little trash as possible.

5.  Limited Cell Service

The venue’s cell reception only works for certain carriers, some of the time – If you’re planning on camping with friends, we recommend scouting a camping spot on the map or deciding on a meeting spot prior to arriving onsite.

6.  Free Water

In an effort to reduce the amount of plastic waste at Woogie Weekend, we will not be selling individual bottles of water within or around the festival. Instead there will be several filtered water stations located throughout the grounds where you can refill your reusable bottles and canteens.

Don’t have a reusable bottle or canteen? Pre-order your official Woogie Weekend water bottle here and pick it up at the merch booth when you arrive!

7.  Protect Yourself Against the Elements

Temperatures are projected to be in the low 80’s during the day, with zero chance of rain as of now (wahoo!).  Don’t forget hats, sunglasses and your sunblock either! This event will go on rain or shine, so in the rare case of rain, we advise camps come prepared with EZ Ups, shade structures, and waterproof tarps for optimal comfort and sleep time.

8. Campground Showers

Cost – $7 cash only please & Hours:

Saturday – 7am – 7pm  

Sunday – 7am – 7pm

Monday – 7am – 12pm

9.  Exiting Woogie Weekend

Everyone must leave Woogie Weekend by 12pm on Monday, 7/11. You don’t have to go home, but ya can’t stay here 🙂

 

Campground Etiquette

Free Form Camping – The tent and car camping areas at Woogie Weekend are free form, meaning we don’t block out camping spots, we just fill people in where they fit.

Bring Only What You Need – We are counting on each of you to help us save space and only use as much as you need.

Keep It Compact – Make friends with your neighbors, and help eliminate wasted space between sites. Share the land by aiming to keep your site within the recommended parameters for every 2 people in your camp.

Don’t Camp On The Roads – There will be roads and fire lanes in the campgrounds, do not build your camp in any of them or you will be asked to move.

No Land Grabbing – If you want to camp with your friends please be sure to arrive with them, you will not be allowed to save large plots of land for people that are arriving later than you.

No In & Outs For Car Campers – There is no coming and going throughout the weekend – once you are parked, you’re parked (both your car and your tent). Please plan accordingly.

Headdresses & Cultural Appropriation

Taking off the headdress is about respecting the realities faced by Native Peoples today.

Native peoples are still here, fighting for basic human & religious rights, and for respect. But because the majority of society learns about Native cultures in textbooks, cartoons, and movies, the realities they face and even their existence remains invisible. At Halloween, “Indian costumes” are sold alongside Spiderman, mermaids, and fictional characters. Many of us grew up playing cowboys and indians or watching sports that have indian mascots. These experiences support the entitlement of non-native people to reenact our storybook versions of exotic, romanticized stereotypes (noble savage, warriors, pristine environmentalists, shamans or magic indians). It is a kind of American Indian image painted by white oppressors. So sporting that headdress means being a walking representative of 500+ years of colonialism and racism, perpetuating stereotypes that native people have been fighting against for just as long.
