THE DETAILS:


Camping and Overnight Accommodations
Again this year, we are going to let people camp wherever they want – in the field, forest or in-between. The pottapotties, showers, potable water, meals and concerts will all still be down near the house so if you camp in the woods, plan to get your hiking in. There will be designated fire pits. Do not make new ones. This time of year is typically dry but rainstorms have been known to happen, so we strongly recommend you bring a tarp or ground cloth to put under your tent.

Parking space is limited. We have room for a VERY limited number of campers or RV’s (no sewer or water hook-ups) and they are quite far from where activities are. There will be no campers in the main parking area next to the house. We would really prefer that you NOT bring a camper or RV but if you insist then you MUST - WITHOUT EXCEPTION - GET PRIOR APPROVAL. If you don't get prior approval and you just show up with one you WILL BE TURNED AWAY with NO REFUND (because you could still camp). There are a limited number of B&B’s and inns in Bethel and nearby towns. Please contact Laurelin staff if you would like further information.

Toilets, Showers, and Water
Port-a-potties will be available on-site. There is a shower house with one hot water and one cold water shower. There is an outdoor sink for washing dishes and drinking water. All of these are down near the main house.

Meal Plan
We will again be offering our delicious meal plan – with both carnivore and vegetarian options. The plan can be bought either for:
- Thursday breakfast through Sunday brunch (for folks who arrive Wednesday night)
- Thursday dinner through Sunday brunch (for those who arrive Thursday afternoon or evening)
- Friday dinner through Sunday brunch (for those who arrive on Friday)
- Saturday dinner and Sunday brunch (for those who just come for the weekend)
If you are signing up for the meal plan, we need your registration NO LATER than July 12th.
Please also let us know right away if you have any special dietary needs/ allergies.

Village Builders
This year we will be having a special day for those people who would like to come together as a smaller group to share, connect and participate in the creation of our magickal village. In ritual and with magickal intent, we will break into teams each dedicated to creating and maintaining one aspect of our magickal community – some hard physical labor, and others less so. Arrival is by Noon on Tuesday, July 25th. There is no cost for coming to Village Builders however the meal plan will be offered (dinner on Tuesday, breakfast, lunch and dinner on Wednesday). Cost for the Builders meal plan is an additional $28.00.

Workshops, Rituals, and Activities
If you have an idea for a workshop, ritual, discussion, performance, or children’s activity – we’d LOVE to hear about it! Don’t be shy – we’re open to any and all ideas. As a community, we freely share our skills to help make Lughnasadh an exciting, rich and fun-filled experience that will keep everyone coming back year after year (and bringing more friends too!). We hope that you will too. Send your proposals via email to: laurelinvt@gmail.com before May 1st. (Sooner is better!) You will be notified by June 1st whether or not it is accepted.

Vendor and Psychic Info
We’d love to have lots of vendors and psychics for Lughnasadh 2017! Crafts, clothing, food, mead, New Age, Tarot readings, runes, whatever! We’ve got plenty of space and there is no fee for merchanting; however, we do ask a 10% commission on your sales at the end of the event. One person (the merchant) can have their registration fee waived. Any guests/ helpers would have to pay full registration. You still have to provide your own food, travel, etc. Please contact Kirk at laurelinvt@gmail.com for information.

Pets/ Dogs
Dogs are welcome this year at the festival. However, you MUST provide proof of rabies vaccination or your dog will not be permitted. Further, all dogs must be kept on-leash at all times in the fields or around the house. They are free to run loose in the wooded areas. You are expected to pick up and dispose of any waste left in areas where people will be walking, camping, etc.

Your pet must be calm, non-disruptive, and under your control (on leash or off) at all times. If it fights with other animals, is disruptive by barking or other behaviors, is threatening or causes damage to the site or its other occupants, or not under your control at all times you will be required to take the pet off-site with no refund.
