The gates open at noon on Friday. As with all their outdoor events, Mountain Sky encourages everyone to come early and camp out for the duration, bring their families, and carve out a little spot to call home for the weekend. Mountain Sky is a family-friendly venue with optional designated areas for quiet camping, a small rustic playground, and lots of pavement for chalk art, too.
There will also be food and craft vendors, yoga, a hooping class, a photo booth, games, and the Camp Rattler Stage and Sideshow. It is BYOB, but no glass is allowed. Valid ID is required at the gate for a 21+ bracelet.
Weekend passes are $45 or $20 for Friday and $25 for Saturday online or at the gate. Free camping is included with all ticket purchases. Kids 12 and under are always free.
A 24-hour medically trained security/emergency response team will be on site. All fire pits must be contained within raised metal. There will be fire pit rentals and firewood available for purchase.
