  1. Can you tell me when more information about the camping accomodations will be available? Some specific information I am looking for is: Can reservations be made only by phone, or will a web reservation service be available? Will there be hookups? What nights will camping be available? etc. Thank you.

  2. Can you tell me if there is any seating areas? I am bringing a person with mobility concerns who needs to rest periodically. Is it possible to bring folding chairs, the kind that go in a bag over your shoulder?

    1. Yes, we have seating areas in many places! There is seating at the stage to watch the band performances, there is also seating in the Food Court so that you could sit and enjoy the delicious food that is offered. We also have seating at the Guinness Games Field. If at any time you need assistance please let our volunteers know! We would be happy to make sure there is a seat available where you need it!!!

    1. They have electric and water and a dumping station! It will be in the Laburnum Lot which is right next to the festival!

    1. We have handicapped parking. Send me your email address and I will send you a festival map so you have a better idea of the layout. There are gravel roads that run throughout the field and we are happy to assist you in any way!

  3. WHAT ARE CHECK IN AND OUT TIMES FOR CAMPING
    AND HOW CLOSE IS IT TO THE FESTIVAL (THERE IS A HANDICAPPED PERSON TRAVELING WITH ME)
    WHAT IS YOUR PET POLICY
    CAN YOU GIVE ME THE DIRECT ADDRESS FOR THE CAMPGROUND SO WE CAN DRIVE DIRECTLY TO IT
    WE ARE COMING FROM SO MD

    1. There is a security number that you can call when you arrive at the campground and they will let you in whenever you arrive. You do have to fill out the camping form ahead of time in order to allow them to let you into the campground. All the information is on the form at http://www.rir.com or you can call Pepper Wilson directly at 804-228-7512.

      There are only about ten campers at this time so you will be very close to the festival. Camping is on the grounds at rir.

      The address is 600 E Laburnum Ave Richmond VA.

      Dogs are allowed with proof of rabies vaccination and a non-retractable leash.

      Thanks! Let me know if you need anything else!

  4. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Cheers!
