Festival Dates: March 22-25

Recommended Travel Dates : March 22-26 | March 21-26 for International Guests
The festival dates are from Thursday all the way through Sunday so we highly recommend planning to depart the festival on the following Monday after the festival. From Thursday 12pm until Sunday late night there is wall to wall programming so if arriving on Thursday we recommend arriving in the morning, checking in, then coming to the festival to start the fun. If traveling internationally we recommend arriving a day early so you can have time to settle in.
