some shaded spots, suitable for any camper vehicle. There will be a separate tenting spot, complete with a place to park your car, doubling as a quieter family area this. Help us by keeping our area clean...
Disposal Stations: Disposal stations will be placed throughout the site, complete with recycling, bottle & can disposal. A green bin will be placed in the food area for your compostables. If you are able, better yet to take your stuff home and dispose of it there. Compostable bags will be available at the gate, just in case.
Water: Tenters please bring a supply of water with you for your camp supplies,
as you would as you would camp in the rough. There will be potable water available for purchase at the Meadowood Store.....for tenters & campers with no portable water systems...
RVer's please fill up everything before you come
Showers: Our new sponsor Riverside Resort has generously offered to allow any camper with a wristband to shower there for a loonie,
Portapotties: Portable toilets with sinks will be located around the site plus two handicapped portable toilets,
one in the ring area..
SaniDumps: The closest sanidump is at Qualicum First Nations Campground or Rathtrevor Provincial Park in Parksville. There is not a dumping spot on the bluegrass festival grounds, so please adjust your sewage accordingly..lol
Campfires NOT ALLOWED: Open flame campfires are not allowed, but propane campfires with a flame maximum of 6 inches are and propane cook stoves are allowed. THIS WILL BE STRICTLY ENFORCED, for obvious reasons.
Dogs must be leashed, while out of your campsite. Please pick up after your pet, as no one wants a surprise,
right? Poo poo bags will be available at the gate. And please remember that ABSOLUTELY NO dogs are allowed in the inner stage listening ring area or vendor eating areas. Thanks for your cooperation.
