bring your pet to the festival! but please read these guidelines first...

Owners must have proof of all required and up-to-date vaccinations, and dogs must have ID tags on their collars. 

When you bring your dog to the festival, you accept liability for injury or property damage caused by your dog and you will be responsible for all cost of repairs, fines or levies. 

The California Bluegrass Association maintains no liability for any actions of the dog or its owners. 

When you walk your dog, he must be on a short (not to exceed six (6) feet) leash. 

Dogs must be confined to a pen or a RV or on a short leash while in camp. No free ranging tethers are allowed. 

Sorry, but we’ll have to ask you to remove your dog from the grounds if he becomes a nuisance. Being a nuisance includes continually barking (for a single time or multiple short intervals) or disturbing festival goers in any manner. This will be strenuously enforced. 

Please don’t leave your dog alone for longer than 45 minutes to an hour. 

Keep supplies handy and clean up after your dog. It’s good manners. You wouldn’t want to ruin some else’s good time. 

The main camping area is where dogs reside. No dogs allowed in Tent Only area (near Gate 4) However, if you have a dog and a tent, you can camp in an area that is not Tent Only. 

During Music Camp and the Festival, dogs must stay outside of the fenced area that is near the stages and vendors. 

Please keep your dog out of and away from the water ditch and the lake.
