Camping at Deerfield Fairgrounds - What You Need to Know
« on: May 30, 2013, 04:18:14 PM »
Camping is available Thursday and Friday nights.  Passes are sold by the Deerfield Fair Association NOT by NEAR-Fest.  Please be advised that these are NOT AVAILABLE for purchase in advance or by mail.  They may be purchased on site starting Thursday afternoon at the campground.

Campers - Motorhomes, travel trailers, conversion vans, pop-up tenting trailers - any vehicle whose PRIMARY purpose is for recreational use or in which to sleep.

Thursday night                                                  $30.00
Friday night                                                      $30.00

Tents     
Thursday night                                                  $15.00
Friday night                                                      $15.00

For people who want to sleep in a vehicle not covered by either the camping or tenting category the charge for Thursday night will be $15.00.  There will be no charge for Friday night inside the Fairgrounds provided they don't plug your heater into an electric service outlet.  If you do you will be charged $15.00

For full information on the Deerfield Fair Association's camping policy please read the following:

All vehicles, including passenger cars must be parked in the Thursday night camping area and pay the appropriate fee.  There is no overnight parking allowed Thursday night in the main parking area.  This is by directive of the Deerfield Fair Association directors not NEAR-Fest.  However we are obliged to enforce it.  Kindly do not address any complaints about fees to campground or any other staff member.  If you feel you really must register your displeasure the only ones who might even listen are myself, W1RC, and Paulie D, W1PRA, NEAR-Fest Sergeant-at-Arms. WARNING:  Don't expect sympathy.  We have heard it all. 

Again I must reiterate:  We have no control or say in anything to do with camping or tenting overnight except if you want to camp you gotta pay.  We are merely the messenger.  Don't shoot us.
