On-Site Camping Line Policy

Due to modifications to our Festival lease agreements with the Town of Lyons, we will now be charging $10 per day for camping and or parking at Bohn Park for the on-site camping and Academy lines. The line entry procedure will remain the same as it has been for the past few years. View the specific rules for the Song School camping line.

The rules for the Festival on-site camping line are as follows:

Because we have had many complaints about the overnight line to get into the show, we have established a policy in hopes of creating a kinder, gentler, more Festivarian-like entry each morning. Please keep in mind that the entry line is a complicated logistical problem and we have developed these rules with a lot of experience and a number of factors in consideration. Our goal is to create an entry procedure that will be fair, orderly, and will satisfy the greatest number of Festivarians.

A special request...

Every year, the biggest problem we have at the Lyons Festivals is Festivarian parking in residential areas and in front of businesses. When you come to the Festivals please park only in designated areas. There is a nominal fee, but it will strengthen the relationship with the town and its residents and secure the future of the Festivals. Thanks!
