This post will be updated with any changes throughout the festival.
We are implementing a burn ban for the 16th Annual Fall Shakori Hills GrassRoots Festival of Music & Dance.
This includes all open flames, such as campfires, Tiki torches, charcoal fires, etc… Gas grills are allowed. Camp Rangers will be enforcing this ban.
Conditions on the property are very dry and we ask that you keep this in mind throughout your stay with us this week.
We know how much the fires add to your festival experience and do not come by this decision lightly. However, given that we have not had significant rainfall in the last 30 days, we feel this decision is the safest for all attendees.
The nightly drum circle fire will continue, but we ask that you not burn at your campsite.
Please dispose of cigarettes butts properly and do not smoke within 15 feet of festival structures, including buildings, tents, and vendors.
If you need somewhere to store your butts, check out our new pocket ashtray in the merchandise tent.
