Policy and Procedure for Service Animals

Recently, For The Funk Of It has been inundated with non-service animal pets, who have accompanied 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 festival grounds.

**By law, 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 may NOT enter the festival grounds.**

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. If you are obviously intoxicated you will not be served at the bar. Under-age drinking or use of illegal drugs WILL NOT BE TOLERATED.

Law Enforcement

Belden Town Road is a public road and is subject to peace officer patrols. No open containers on the road are allowed. You will be ticketed by law enforcement if caught.

FIRES

There are NO OPEN FIRES allowed. You CAN bring a camp stove that runs on gas. You must obtain a free fire permit to operate any open flame devices such as a camp stove. Obtain permits here: https://permit.preventwildfiresca.org

Smoking

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!! A small personal container is recommended.

FOOD AND VENDING

There will be food vendors, a bar, and ice sold on site.

GAS

The closest gas would be in Oroville or Chico (35 miles) is you are coming from the West. If you are coming from the East, then Quincy would be your closest gas (25 miles). Don’t drive to Belden Town on ‘Empty’ as there is nowhere to get gas on site.

SWIMMING

The Feather River runs directly through Belden Town and is accessible for swimming. The water levels fluctuate as we are located next to the water release station. Most times the water is deep enough to swim in with little current but as the water level changes, so does the swiftness of the current. Please use good judgment when entering the water. We assume NO liability for swimming.

WHAT TO BRING

Sunglasses, a sweet sun hat, a light scarf, wrap, parasol or sarong; shade is vital when the sun is high! 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 embraces the early-summer rays).
It’s a good idea to bring some warm nighttime clothes as well as clothes and costumes for fun in the daytime sun. Though it’s usually quite warm this time of year in Concow We are expecting a high of 90 degrees during the day and mid sixties at night. 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!
We will have food vendors on site, but it is always a good idea to bring a few snacks to keep you going.
Klean Kanteen Hydration Station will be onsite so you can fill your water bottles with great fresh water… This is delicious filtered fresh mountain water 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, our Green Team will be recycling and it will be much easier if it is separated ahead of time!
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.
