ARRIVAL DETAILS

Stay tuned for upcoming arrival instructions…

CELL SERVICE

Lake Concow Campgrounds has very limited cell service. AT&T is the ONLY reliable carrier in the area, please plan accordingly.

DOGS AND OTHER PETS

By law, only service animals are permitted. If an animal’s purpose or task is to provide protection, emotional support, well-being, comfort, or companionship, it is NOT considered a service animal and IS NOT ALLOWED.

Recently, For the Funk of It has been inundated with non-service animal pets, who have accommodated their owners in violation of California and federal law. Moreover, these animals have compromised the health and safety of festival patrons and legitimate service animals. We have therefore developed a new service animal policy and procedure. The policy and procedure will be strictly enforced and implemented in the interest of ensuring that bona fide service animals are permitted and all other animals are prohibited from For the Funk of It.

Qualified and bona fide service animals are welcome at For the Funk of It. Pets and non-service animals are NOT permitted. It is a crime to misrepresent a pet as a service animal. Those who bring their non-service animals to the festival will be ejected from the festival site without refund. All service animals must be trained, housebroken, leashed and under the direct control of their handler at all times. If any handler does not adhere to these conditions, the handler will be asked to remove the animal from the site. The handler then may return without the animal. For the Funk of It reserves the right to refuse admittance to or eject any individual whose conduct poses a direct threat to the health or safety of other individuals or service animals.

Any For the Funk of It patron arriving at the festival with a service animal will need to have their service animal credentialed at the box office. This process should not be feared, as it will be conducted with respect and understanding. After the service animal has been credentialed by festival staff, important information will be provided to the disabled individual. Once your service animal has been credentialed, staff are not likely to question you again unless the animal causes a problem. Any patron bringing a non-service animal will be not permitted onto any of the festival grounds, including camping areas.

DRUGS AND ALCOHOL POLICY

There will be onsite alcohol sales for those 21+ with valid ID. ABSOLUTELY NO OUTSIDE ALCOHOL ALLOWED. Under-age drinking or use of illegal drugs WILL NOT BE TOLERATED.

FIRES

There are NO OPEN FIRES allowed.

If you smoke, please be very careful of all lit embers as the grounds are covered with dry leaves and grasses. Be sure to place fully extinguished butts in a proper receptacle!!

FOOD AND VENDING

There will be food and craft vendors on site.

GAS

There is a local store with gas and supplies very near the site, as well as Chico and Oroville are within 35 miles.

SWIMMING

Lake Concow is a protected reservoir with no swimming or motor boats allowed. We assume NO liability for swimming.

WHAT TO BRING

A basic necessity of most any outdoor overnight adventure is a tent to crash in. Resurrect your inner scout with a basic set-up or Glamp it on up; either way, you’ll be thankful to have a comfortable home base to come back to when you need to take a bit of rest.

You should plan to sleep at some point and will be thankful that you brought something comfortable to sleep in/on. Make it possible to treat yourself kindly!!

Belden Town has a restaurant and vendors will be serving delicious, nutritious hot meals, hooray! That being said, it is always a good idea to bring a few snacks to keep you going.

It’s a good idea to bring some warm nighttime clothes as well as ‘non-clothes’ for fun in the daytime sun. Though it’s usually quite warm this time of year in Belden, with all the crazy weather we’ve seen lately you just never know for sure.

This event is based on movement! The grounds are small but you can dance for miles without ever leaving the dance floor. Your favorite shoes, boots and/or sandals are key. The terrain can be a little rocky and uneven in places. It all starts from the ground up, take care of your feet! Again, the river: it moves along it’s merry way so you may want to bring sandals with straps or shoes that are made for water action.

There is water available on site so bring a refillable non-glass container to minimize waste. Be sure to have a container for water for your campsite as it could be a bit of a stroll if you wake up thirsty.

Bring a headlamp or flashlight to help you keep it all together when the sun goes down.

This is a LEAVE NO TRACE event. Please try to not bring disposable items! Minimize unnecessary packaging well beforehand and do not bring it on-site. Let’s look out for our impact on each other and the land, leaving everything better than we found it. Bring bags for your camp area, we will be recycling and it will be much easier if it is separated ahead of time!

Sunglasses, a sweet sun hat, a light scarf, wrap, parasol or sarong; shade is vital when the sun is high! We will be spending a good deal of time at the river so be prepared for exposure. The campgrounds are ringed with vibrant oaks and pines but there are open areas as well: don’t count on getting a shady spot! You may want to bring some Aloe for hero points in case you or a friend over embrace the early-summer rays.
