Event description

Your registration gets you access to demos on the latest and greatest bike products, shuttle service, skills clinics, women's clinics, group rides, music Friday and Saturday night costume party, kids rides, educational seminars, an evening movie, a free digital subscription to Dirt Rag Magazine and more.



Early Arrival: Thursday, registration opens at 1:00 p.m.

Arrival: Friday, registration opens at 11:00 a.m.

Departure: Sunday by 5:00 p.m.

If you are sleeping on the Airstrip, main camping area, you must purchase onsite camping. This includes; sharing a tent with a friend, sleeping on a camp table, sleeping in a roof-top tent, using a hammock, etc. If your sleeping in someone's RV who has already purchased a pass with onsite camping you are still required to purchase a pass with onsite camping, as you are camping on site.

  • All on-site camping is communal camping, which means you will share a campsite with other campers. Be ready to make some new friends!

  • Group Camping: You will be assigned a camping spot depending on the size of your group. We cannot guarantee all campers their own group site. Our goals are to have groups seven or larger have their own site, but there are times where we need to combine people and/or groups together. Please make sure your whole group uses the same name so no one gets mixed up or left out of the group. Enter the full group name and not just an acronym. If you do not enter a group name you will be put in individual camping.

  • If your group is less than seven people, you will be slotted to camp in the Individual Camping Area. Don't panic, there is plenty of space!

  • Individual Camping: If you don't have a group, that's okay! List yourself as an Individual on the next page. You will share a campsite with other individual campers.

  • There are no specific site reservations.

  • Once camping sells out, we will open a waitlist. If someone in your group didn't sign up in time, they can join the waitlist. Encourage your group to sign up ASAP! On-site camping sells out every year.

  • We have a limited amount of campsites for RVs/ Sprinters/ pop-ups/ pull-behind trailers. THESE ARE ALL PRIMITIVE CAMPSITES WITH NO HOOK-UPS. You can fill up and empty your water with the Big Bear Lake Camplands facility, to the left of the entrance. Make sure you enter your group name when registering.

Camping offsite:

Arrival: Friday, registration opens at 11:00 a.m., expo opens at 1:00p.m.

Places to book offsite, reservations have to be made separate:


  • Campfires are only allowed in a metal bottom fire bowls or chimineas that you may bring with you. The event is on an airstrip, so we ask that you use caution and maintain a small controlled fire, with emergency water at hand. Do not build rock rings. Weather conditions may cause fire restrictions.


  • Please carry out your weekend trash to the dumpster at the expo entrance/exit garbage drop-off.


Parking & Shuttles:

  • There is free parking at the Big Bear Lake Trail Community Center near the main trail entrance with shuttle access to and from the expo.

  • Parking passes can be purchased with your registration. We are asking attendees who are purchasing a parking pass to please consider having one vehicle per three people.

  • A parking pass can be purchased onsite at registration for Day Pass Only but will be limited to available space. If you do not want to purchase a parking pass, you can park for free at the Big Bear Lake Community Center parking area and ride the trails up to the expo or catch the shuttle Friday-Sunday. Anyone who has not purchased a parking pass and is camping on site will be given a temporary parking pass to unload then can head up to the free parking and drop their car at the Community Center lot.

  • Shuttle service will be running Friday-Sunday. There will be two bike shuttles running until dusk, one human shuttle running until 10 pm Friday & Saturday.


  • Kids under the age of 16 are free to attend. Be aware that the onsite camping can stay pretty noisy in the evening. Attendees are also drinking publicly, and mountain bikers do tend to change their clothes publicly. If this sounds like something to avoid, we recommend camping at Beaver Creek Village just down the road.


  • Dogs or pets are NOT permitted at Dirt Fest.


  • Pre-ordered merchandise can be picked up at the Dirt Rag booth in the main expo.

  • Refunds are available up to 30-days prior to the event date.
