Q: What is Lammas and why are you celebrating it?
A: Click here for a detailed description of Lammas
Q: Why are their images of hawk strewn throughout the site?
A: Well there is a story behind it, in two parts actually. First part here. The other part is that the LammasFest Committee and event both provide support to the McBride Raptor Project which cares for and rehabs injured raptors (birds of prey). The Red Tailed Hawk is a raptor and we have supported a Red Tailed Hawk since the beginning of LammasFest and will continue to do so as long as we are able.
Q: Am I able to vend at this event?
A:Absolutely, use our Vendor Registration to sign up.
Q: What are quiet hours?
A: Over the years as we have done the event in the same location and the Army Corp of Engineers has allowed us to extend quiet hours as the campground is fairly secluded. Quiet hours are usually extended to Midnight (normal is 10pm).
Q: Can I bring a ritual blade?
A: If you are planning to bring a ritual blade or armory (athame, sword, etc.) they are to be worn ONLY during Rituals AND they must be peace bound at ALL TIMES.
Q: Can I bring my pet/familiar?
A:Yes, however please keep the following in mind:
Pets/Companion Animals: If you are considering bringing pets with you to LammasFest, please be aware that pets must be kept on a 6 foot leash which must be attached to an ADULT at all times. We reserve the right to help you find a kennel to board your animal(s) or ask you to leave if you do not adhere to this policy. Please have any immunization/health records with you to be available to park officials if needed.
Q: I have special medical needs which require power to be available, can this be accommodated?
A:Yes this can be accommodated however we will need to know as much in advance as possible as we do need to get special permission from the Army Corps 0f Engineers. Please contact us on this as soon as possible.
Q: What type of campground is the Cottonwood campground?
A: The Cottonwood campground is a secluded part of the Coralville Dam Complex which is operated by the Army Corp Of Engineers. True to it’s name the site has a multitude of cottonwood trees and surrounding the grounds in a leafy canopy. This is a tent only site however there is a modern bathroom at the site complete with showers.
