Join us in the field by the sea!
Weekend passes with camping passes included are available on the Tickets page. Camping is available for weekend passholders only. Camping tickets are per-person, not per-spot – everyone camping needs a camping pass. Our capacity is based on our limited water, waste, security, and volunteer resources, not on physical space.
Something new in 2017 – due to changes in BC liquor licensing, all camping (including volunteer camping) will be in the lower field just across the road from the main site).
Gates open at 11am on Friday, no camping permitted on Thursday night or Sunday night. We have limited water resources, so if you bring a vehicle, please bring your own drinking water as well. There is a summer fire ban on the island, fires are not allowed anywhere on Mayne. Contained camp stoves are welcome.
All property surrounding our farm is private, no trespassing on our neighbours! We will be checking the surrounding area, and will call in the RCMP to enforce this if necessary. Alternate accommodation options are listed below.
All tents must be down by noon on Sunday. Our amazing teardown volunteers need the space clear so they can return the farm to working order. Seal Beach Camping is an option if you’d like to extend your stay on Mayne.
Bring a tent, your sleeping bag, mattress and pillow – don’t forget food for the day, sunscreen and a sweater & socks for the cool evening, maybe raingear and a tarp. Bring your happy voice, dancin feet and a swim suit. You will leave with great memories, tunes in your head and, we hope, all your own garbage. We try to minimize our impact on the beautiful land we present this festival on, and it really helps if you pack out everything you pack in.
The Mayne Island farmer’s market on Saturday morning is a great place to get lunch and fresh veggies!
