Car Pooling


Although we can't guarantee people will step up and offer a seat in their car it's our hope this effort will reduce the carbon footprint of those attending the festival, offer opportunities for attendees to connect and network with people from their area & will provide a valuable service to those who wouldn't be able to attend otherwise.
