We like to keep it simple.  Everyone who attends Canoegrass should come with spirit of love and assume good intentions. Our festival staff are happy folks 99% of the time. Please avoid being a part of the 1% category. Bottomline, negative behavior will not be tolerated.

  • Tickets are NON-REFUNDABLE but are transferable.
  • Leave guests’ stuff alone! We are a family. Stealing is not tolerated. We had an issue at a previous photo shoot. Our team is on full alert to assure the safety and well-being of all guests and their property. Please report any suspicious behavior.

NEW TO 2022


Canoegrass has decided that we will no longer be allowing pets/dogs in our events. This is being done for our guest’s safety and the cleanliness of the festival . We understand that some of you may be disappointed by this change and we apologize for any inconvenience it may cause. We hope that you will continue to enjoy your time with us at Canoegrass. We look forward to seeing you soon!



  • Tent or hammock camping only.
  • A very limited supply of retro camper/vans/small RV weekend tickets will be available. Campers/vehicle must fit in a 30 feet x 30 feet space. 25 primitive sites are available. No electric, water hookups or dump services are provided. One vehicle permitted per space. Individuals must also purchase a festival ticket.
