Accessibility

Throughout the festival site, attendees may encounter steep slopes, uneven terrain, loose gravel, earthy paths, and exposed river banks. We acknowledge that these natural features pose an accessibility barrier and we will do our best to accommodate any accessibility requests brought to our attention. Additionally, we are planning an accessibility audit and welcome your feedback in this area. 

For more information, please contact rtmf.info@gmail.com or the front gate or info tent onsite.

Is this a kid friendly event?

 

We love having children at the festival!  However, we do not have any kid specific activities at the festival... so if your children need a play structure and kids music they may not be very happy... 

 

There is a "quiet" campground that has a no noise policy after 11pm, BUT this area is still quite close to the stage (200 meters) and will have plenty of music bleeding over and lulling you to sleep, (keeping you awake).  We do not have a truly silent campground.  Please keep this in mind. 

 

Kids should not be left unattended at any time on the RTMF site. There is poison ivy just off the trails, and a river and splash pool to be wary of.  We do our utmost to build a safe environment, but there are some risks to be aware of, especially for children.

O - A tent - Camping space is limited and we cannot accommodate large campsites. Please camp according to the number of persons your tent is rated for. Screen gazebos that are not for sleeping cannot be accommodated.
