Your Tent City Experience at The Soul Picnic: You Asked, We Listened!

That’s right – you’re invited to bring your own tents to create your own cozy retreat at The Soul Picnic! Whether you’re seeking shade, a chill spot with friends, or simply a break from the sun, your tent will be your home base.

Here are the essential guidelines to ensure everyone’s enjoyment:

  • All tents will need to be set up by 3pm. There will be no tents allowed after 3pm
  • Designated Areas: Set up your tent only in designated zones to ensure safety and fun for all.
  • Weighted Tents: For security, tents must be weighted; no spikes are allowed under any circumstances.
  • Size Limit: Tents cannot exceed 10 x 10 in size.
  • First-Come, First-Serve: Space in Tent City is available on a first-come, first-serve basis within designated areas.
  • Parking Considerations: Parking at Dorothea Dix Campus may require a long walk with your tent. Shuttles may be available, but not guaranteed.
  • Mindful Space: Be considerate of your tent’s footprint and respect fellow festival-goers’ areas. Due to Tent City’s popularity, some areas may have obstructed views of the stage.
  • View Consideration: While creativity is encouraged, please avoid obstructing views or causing inconvenience.

    ***TENT RENTALS: Prefer hassle-free setup? Rent a tent with your ticket purchase for a potentially better view. However, clear visibility of the stage cannot be guaranteed.

All reserved table seating qualifies to enter our ‘Decorate Your Table’ contest for a chance to win prizes. These premium seatings are limited to the chairs provided in your reservation. No tailgating chairs will be allowed in the VIP seating area. If you reserve uncovered seating, you will not be permitted to put any additional covering. We want to ensure the views remain open to allow everyone to enjoy their premium experience.

The Lawn

Didn’t reserve a VIP Tent, Reserved section or Table? No worries! You can lay out your blankets or bring your lawn chairs to enjoy the open space that Flowers Field provides.
