Gate Restrictions

No weapons (blades, firearms, explosives, etc…) are allowed on festival grounds. While we do have artisans who sell real weaponry, we do not allow those weapons to be brandished around the grounds. Any weapons purchased within the festival grounds must remain within the original packaging when purchased.

Obvious toy weapons are limited based on the discretion of our festival security staff. If the prop weapon looks realistic to their real weaponry counterparts, we will ask that the toy weapon be returned to your vehicle. Toy weapons we do permit are the wooden swords we sell here at the festival (with the exception of Hollow Earth weaponry, those are classified as a training weapons), foam weapons, and Nerf toys.
