Yes! Feel free to come and go when you like. If you are parked in the campground however, please leave your car in place all weekend. 

is there beer?

We serve Arrowood Farms Brewing beers and local cider in our fine collectible stainless Hoot cups. Please drink responsibly and enjoy the show!

Is this a good family event?

Absolutely. Many hootsters bring their parents AND their kids! This is truly a multi-generational event, where all are welcome and encouraged. 


Summer: Our main stage/audience area is handicapped accessible. The top of Hoot Hill and some areas of the vendor village are not easily accessed. Our restrooms and the first floor of all buildings are accessible.

Winter: Our buildings are ground floor accessible. Wheelchair access to the main lodge is from the lower staff/handicapped parking lot via the "Fiber Flame" room beside the kitchen. Once in that building, other first floors of other buildings can be accessed on wheels via pathways. Please direct specific accessibility questions to Ruthy at

are there showers in the campground?

The "musical" campground has a brand-new bath house which is open to anyone to use. The "quiet" campground has no shower facility. All campers are also encouraged to use the showers in the Longhouse. (This one applies to Summer!)
