Fest Fans, we need your help! Elmore County is the home of the Greater Sage-Grouse, a beautiful, ground-dwelling bird that is a candidate for listing under the Endangered Species Act. Together, let's work to ensure the well-being of the Sage-Grouse as well as its surrounding habitat. Here’s how you can help:

Do not use the surrounding Sage-Grouse habitat for camping, hiking, riding off-road vehicles or exercising your dogs.


Fireworks, off-road driving, smoking* and shooting all increase the risk of wildfires and are strictly prohibited on Festival grounds.

Smoking is permitted only in designated areas within the venue.

Notify on-site security if you see something out of place or notice someone venturing off into the wild, starting a campfire or engaging in otherwise potentially dangerous behavior.
