Since 2005, Jibberjazz festivals have drummed up a buzz in the underground by showcasing a truly diverse musical-lineup that blends heavy-hitting out of market bands, national acts, and up-and-coming regional talent. Our festivals have developed a dedicated fan base in the region and continue to grow in intensity and attendance, season after season. The trend continues through 2018, as we continue to produce multiple music & camping festivals per season in our quest to find "Tomorrow's Headliners Today." Creative line-ups, killer music, and good people are what Jibberjazz is all about. Now let's get to wild dancing!

Can I bring my DOG? Pets are welcome at Jibberjazz festivals, but as regulated by our insurance company, no dangerous breeds of dogs (i.e. pit bulls) are allowed on the grounds. We are sorry but this is the way it has to be. A good general rule of thumb is: If your animal has the capacity to harm a child, leave it at home or in a shelter. All animals must be registered at the gate with current proof of Rabies Vaccination. All animals MUST BE LEASHED AT ALL TIMES and properly attended to while on the grounds.

Who are the WHARF RATS? We are a group of concert-goers who have chosen to live drug and alcohol free. Our primary purpose at the shows is to make ourselves available to anyone who feels we may have something they want. We offer support, strength, fellowship and hope. Look for the yellow balloons, signs and the Wharf Rats information table. Meetings held throughout the weekend.
What if I INJURE myself? A team of Registered and Licensed Practical Nurses are employed 24/7 for the duration of the festival. Basic first-aid is also available at the gate and staff members have the means to contact additional medical personnel if the need should arise. Please notify staff upon checking in if you or someone in your party has a medical condition we should be aware of. Safety is our utmost concern.

Can I buy ELECTRICITY access if I don't have an RV? Campground (non-RV) electrical permits are $40 each per weekend. Purchase at the gate.

Are there SHOWERS? Free showers are available on site during designated daytime hours.
Can I have a personal FIRE? Not unless it is contained within an elevated, store-bought fire pit (we suggest bringing your own firewood). A community bonfire will be on-site to keep everyone warm. Camp grills/stoves are okay. Please be responsible for everyone's sake. Fire pits discovered on the ground will be extinguised immediately and nearby campsites will have to be relocated.
What happens if it RAINS? In case of severe weather, there is always a backup plan in place to have outdoor music moved to safe, indoor stages with similar set times and lengths.
Is there an ATM? There is an ATM in the vending area, at the "General Store". However, if you plan on purchasing tickets at the gate, please bring enough money with you as cash is the only form of payment accepted day of show, and you cannot access the ATM until after you enter the festival grounds.
Will there be YOGA? Yes. Check the festival program or activities section below for a full schedule and description.
