Know the rules.

When in doubt, consider the Festival Code of Conduct: RESPECT the safety and comfort of your fellow Festivarians and look out for each other!

**No general admission entry after 9 pm**

RULE COMPLIANCE: Failure to comply with festival policies/rules may result in removal from the festival without a refund.

FESTIVAL RE-ENTRY: Please keep your wristband(s) on at all times. There is no re-entry without the proper wristband, and wristbands cannot be replaced if removed or damaged.

PARKING: You must display your parking pass on your windshield while you are on the La Foret property. Vehicles without a valid parking pass will be towed. Once your vehicle is parked, it may not be moved, other than to leave
the property. There is no driving back and forth from your campsite to the festival meadow.

PETS: Pets are not permitted at MeadowGrass, with the exception of trained service animals.

SMOKING: Rocky Mountain Highway and La Foret are committed to producing a safe and family-friendly MeadowGrass Music Festival. Smoking on the festival grounds (including the camping area) is restricted to designated smoking areas only. Please dispose of cigarette butts in the appropriate containers. There is no smoking allowed inside any buildings. This includes cabins, yurts, bathroom facilities and all other buildings. No smoking is permitted under the festival tent at any time, including electronic cigarettes and vapor devices. Smoking of electronic and vapor devices is permitted on the festival grounds in designated smoking areas, away from families. Please help us protect the forest from fire danger and our children from exposure to second-hand smoke by obeying these rules.

CANNABIS: Although it is now legal to purchase and consume cannabis products privately in Colorado, the use of marijuana in public remains illegal. Therefore, public consumption of marijuana or any other illegal drug is prohibited at La Foret. Please be mindful of this and respect those around you.

FIRE: All campfires, cooking fires and open fires are prohibited at La Foret. Propane cook stoves and propane campfires are permitted.

WEATHER: MeadowGrass is held each year, rain or shine. No refunds will be given for any weather-related cancellation or problem. Springtime weather in the Rockies is notoriously unpredictable – you may encounter rain, sun, wind or even some snow. We recommend that you come prepared with sunscreen, a rain jacket and warm clothing for nighttime. Dress in layers!

SEATING: Chairs are not provided at MeadowGrass (unless you purchase an “Experience” or “VIP” upgrade). You are welcome to bring your own blankets and camp chairs, but we ask that any high-clearance chairs (i.e. if a basketball can fit underneath) be placed only at the back of the main festival tent. Low chairs are permitted closer to the front, but please do your part to make sure you are not blocking the view of the people behind you. Tents are not permitted under the main festival tent.

CAMPING: Each camper who presents a valid weekend pass with camping will receive a wristband that authorizes his or her right to remain on the property overnight. If you do not have a camping wristband, you will not be permitted to stay overnight. For more camping information, please see the festival program.

LODGING: Off-site lodging may be available near I-25 at the Interquest Parkway and Monument exits or in Colorado Springs.

LOST AND FOUND: Please go to the MeadowGrass merchandise tent to inquire about lost or found items.

OUTSIDE FOOD AND BEVERAGE: Outside alcohol is absolutely prohibited within the main festival grounds as a requirement of our special event permit and liquor license. Food and non-alcoholic beverages may be brought into the festival grounds. The only coolers allowed are small six-pack sized coolers, out of respect for our food vendors.

Our food vendors offer a diverse selection of delicious food and beverages to suit all diets including vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free. We encourage you to sample their offerings. Glass containers (with the exception of official MeadowGrass souvenir mugs) are prohibited on the festival grounds. All
bags, coolers, etc., are subject to search.

ALCOHOL: You will be required to show proper identification to purchase alcoholic beverages – please drink responsibly. Alcohol purchased at the festival may not leave the festival grounds.

WATER: Complimentary drinking water is available at hydration stations located on the main festival grounds. Please bring your own reusable water bottle to refill and make sure to stay hydrated throughout the weekend. If you are coming from a lower elevation, it is especially important that you stay hydrated.
