All multi-day passes include on-site walk-in camping. Parking NOT included, see below. On-site camping at DelFest surrounds the perimeter of the fairgrounds among ballfields, in the woods and beyond in Green Acres. On-site camping is walk-in tent camping only. Expect to be parked tightly and efficiently, and to use the wooded areas for walk-in camping. You won’t be too far from your vehicle, but do not expect to camp right next to your car as we need to maximize parking space, and park efficiently. Wagons and hand carts are encouraged. Shuttles will be available to assist in load-in.
The fairgrounds have permanent restrooms and showers, and we supplement the facilities with ample portable toilets. Please be courteous and take only the space you need. Roping off areas and saving space for latecomers is not acceptable festival etiquette. Camping overnight on Sunday is permitted. All patrons must leave the fairgrounds by noon on Monday.
DelFest is accessible to all guests with disabilities. View Accessibility Information and Registration details here.
There will be a family camping area designated for those who would like a more kid-friendly environment that is quieter late at night (and a bit louder early in the morning). If you’ve got little ones in tow and you are interested in camping in Family Camp, let your parking attendant know and you’ll be pointed in the right direction. Must have a Family Camp RV Pass or On-Site Parking Pass to be placed in Family Camp. As always space is designated on a first come, first served basis.
