Today’s weather will feature sunny skies at 72 degrees Fahrenheit! Expect things to cool down in the evening, with the temperature dropping down to about 53 degrees. Dress comfortably, by bringing layers and stashing belongings in a personal locker until it’s needed most.

Needed or Not: Item Policy Guidelines

We have a few restrictions about what you can and cannot bring to the festival in your bag, on your totem pole, or as a part of your killer costume. Brush up on common guidelines before showing up to the festival gates and avoid issues at the door.
