Here are the rules

TENT CITY TICKETS ARE FOR TENT SPACES ONLY. PURCHASERS MUST PROVIDE THEIR OWN 10' x 10' TENTS.

TENT CITY TICKETS ARE NOT ADMISSION TICKETS. You must have a Festival admission ticket to get into the event. You must have a Tent City ticket to bring your tent onto Festival grounds and take an assigned tent space. A Tent City ticket by itself will not admit you onto the Festival grounds. Festival admission tickets can be purchased either at the Box Office or online at TicketWeb. 

For more information on tickets, click here.

LIMIT 2 TENT CITY TICKETS PER INDIVIDUAL. Please allow others to enjoy the experience. No resellers. The Box Office is the only place where you can be sure to get official Tent City tickets.

PLAN AHEAD: THE VILLAGE OF PLEASANTVILLE REQUIRES TENT WEIGHTS. To maintain field conditions and preserve our sprinkler system, tent spikes are not allowed. However, tent legs must be weighed down in case of wind. Purchasers are responsible for bringing 4 tent weights per tent, minimum 15 pounds per leg. If your weight system requires water, we will provide a place where you can fill them. We ask that there be no side or back panels on tents. This will allow clear sight lines for all patrons.

TENT CITY IS THE ONLY PLACE TO SET UP YOUR TENT. No tents will be allowed onto Parkway Field without a Tent City ticket. 

IF YOU MISS OUT, You still have options:

IN ADDITION TO TENT CITY, WE WILL HAVE OUR POPULAR GIANT SHADE TENT in the back of the main field in front of the bleachers, just like we did last year. There's plenty of space there, free with admission and first-come-first-serve on the day of the Festival. There is also plenty of shade in the Chill Tent. So there should be no need to bring an umbrella or half moon.

IF YOU FEEL LIKE YOU MUST BRING YOUR OWN UMBRELLA OR HALF MOON, you will be asked to put it in the back field behind Vendor Village.
