Farmgrass Camp & Jam FAQs:
Is there camping at Camp & Jam?
Of course! It's in the name! Primitive camping is available on Saturday night with purchase of any ticket. Tent camping is located on the campground, and campsites are first-come, first-serve. You can purchase an electric pass in addition to your tickets. Camping the Friday night before the festival is prohibited. Camping areas open to guests at 9am on Saturday 5/9. Campers must vacate campgrounds by 12pm on Sunday 5/10.
Can I park my car, camper, or RV on the campgrounds?
If you would like RV or car camping at the festival, you may purchase a RV/Car Camping pass for $30. Otherwise, campers must park in the parking lot and carry gear to the campground. We definitely recommend bringing a cart or wagon! The parking lot is about a quarter mile from the campground. RVs must arrive on or before noon. Shoot us an email if you have any questions about RV camping.
