Absolutely. Astral Harvest is a family-friendly event and we welcome kids of all ages. Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian (with documentation), no exceptions. Children under 12 are free and must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times. PLEASE watch your kids carefully at all times, you are solely responsible for their well-being. EVERYONE WILL BE ID’D AT THE GATE.
No. Except Guide Dogs. For safety reasons and the comfort of all guests, we ask that you refrain from bringing animals to the Harvest. Vehicles will be searched and if a pet is found, you will be turned around at the gate. Find a caring sitter or kennel before you make the trip!
Front gate opens on Thursday, July 4 at 12pm. If you want to come early, you may arrive after 6pm on Wednesday, July 3 for a $20 per person early entrance fee. Unapproved arrivals before then will be turned away. During the event free re-entry is permitted with a wrist band. But, why don’t you just stick around? We’re awesome.
All guests must vacate the land by 10AM on Monday, July 8, 2013. Please be sure you’ve had at least 8 hours of sleep before the drive home. We want all guests to make it home safe and sound so they can join us again next year!

Yes, weather permitting. Safety is the main priority so ensure the fire is properly tended. Keep fires small and manageable and inside the provided fire pits. Fire pits may not be moved from where they are found - this causes increase risk of fire mishaps and unnecessary scarring of the land.
