We have several free hospitality fires around the Faire. These fires are maintained by volunteers. Do drop by and warm yourselves, your food and even your hearts.
Bring some warm gear. The Faire is located in the highlands and is colder than in the valley. So do prepare your camp for a frosty night. It is considered disrespectful to other Faire-Goers to use an automobile to create heat.
The Dept of Natural Recourses may allow us a limited number of contained fires for the campers. If so, we will control the total number of fires by issuing our own on site fire permits and inspection crew.
All Campfires Must Have a Visibly Posted Fire Permit
Burn clean and dry organic matter only. No paper, plates, cups, cardboard, newsprint, plastics, Styrofoam, treated lumber or any other material other than clean dry firewood. Trash items are harmful to our air quality and are prohibited by law. Burning of trash will be reported to our security staff.
24 Hour Fire Watch
If you would like to volunteer your time to help keep the site safe, see our volunteer page. Check-in at the Volunteer Bus to sign-up for crews needed day and night.
Non-permit fires or fires built directly on the earth will be doused by our fire watch crew, our security notified and violators are likely to be escorted out of the Faire and passes voided.
