  • The festival is free!
  • Parking: $6

WHAT TO BE PREPARED FOR: (1) All ages and ability levels are welcome! (2) Dogs are not allowed (to protect wildlife, rare plants, and free-range cattle). (3) Expect rough, uneven ground. (4) We do our best to minimize it for the festival, but expect some cow manure as this is a working ranch where free-range cattle roam as they please. (5) There is no drinking water. (6) There is one outhouse. (7) Take only pictures, leave only footprints. (8) Maintain a safe distance from cattle and wildlife, and be aware that this is tick, mountain lion, and potentially rattlesnake country.

WHAT TO BRING: (1) A kite. (2) Drinking water. (3) A picnic lunch. (4) Protection from sun, wind, fog and rain. (5) Boots or sturdy closed-toe shoes. (6) $6 cash or check for parking. (7) Your friends and family!
