We love animals but please DO NOT bring your pets to the festival. That includes all campers, even early access. We have a number of convenient kennels nearby!
Certified service animals are welcomed but “comfort pets” cannot be on the grounds.
“Service Animals” as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act will be allowed. “Emotional Support” animals and “Pets” ARE NOT covered under the ADA and therefore WILL NOT be allowed. All service animals must be registered with Festival ADA Services and be given festival credentials. Service animals must be physically restrained at all times, and it must remain with the person it provides service to at all times.
Campground Car Parking. Everyone will be charged a $30 parking fee to park in the campground parking lot (in the meadow across from Camp Collings or in Camp Armadillo). Unless you have an RV pass. RV Passes include a car parking permit good only for Camp Armadillo and the Meadow Parking lot. If you would like to park near your campsite in Camp Banjo, the cost will be $75. For parking passes, go here.
Parking for Daytrippers is onsite. Camping is not permitted in day parking. Daily ticket holders must exit the day parking lot by 1 am.
The Festival is rain or shine. If there’s a possibility the weather conditions are dangerous, some performances may be paused or cancelled – but this is up to the discretion of Old Settler’s and artists’ management, and any cancellations may be on short notice. Be prepared for any weather, and bring a raincoat and boots!

Our Suggestions for Enjoying the Festival:
Stay hydrated. It’s hard work having this much fun. We’ll have water refill stations at the festival. Please bring a water bottle. We will also sell bottled water at the festival and we also allow you to bring your own. You can bring factory-sealed drinking bottles of water into the arena.
Be prepared for weather. We encourage you to bring sunscreen, a sun hat, and sunglasses – the Texas sun can be strong, even in April. Central Texas can also get cold at night, so bring a jacket or sweater for the evenings. It’s also a good idea to bring rain gear, just in case.
Respect the campsite. Part of maintaining the friendly ambiance includes keeping the campsite in great shape. We ask that all campers take everything they bring in – and leave their campsites cleaner than when they arrived.
Be prepared to play. If you’re a musician, bring your instrument! From late-night campground jam sessions to workshops led by our performers, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to share your music.
