Our Top Ten MUST HAVE Items for Front Porch Fest

Reusable water bottle – FPF is committed to being a low waste venue, and we provide drinking water in the main festival area. Be sure to bring a reusable bottle or two (but no glass please!).

Bug spray – most of the camping areas are wooded, and Spirithaven Farm has an immense amount of water, which means an immense amount of insects! Keep yourself protected with a quality insect repellent.

Sunscreen – though we have covered areas in front of our stages, you will still be soaking up a lot of rays walking around the festival grounds. Keep your skin its best by applying a safe sunscreen a few times a day!

Rain gear – Some people bring a stuffable poncho, some grab their favorite rain slicker, and some kill two birds with one stone and bring a folding umbrella – rain protection AND a sun shade! No matter what you choose, be sure to pack rain gear, just in case!

Layers – the weather at the foot of the mountains can fluctuate wildly, so be prepared for heat AND cold. Pack a few pair of wool socks, a scarf, and a light sweater.

Cash – Cellular service is poor at the farm, which means most vendors prefer cash to credit. There is no ATM on site. Be smart: keep your cash secure in your campsite/car, and only carry small amounts on your person.

Comfortable shoes – the terrain at Spirithaven is rough, with gravel, dirt roads, and the occasional spiky plant on the path. Keep your feet cool and protected with a pair of comfortable sandals, and bring an extra pair of shoes in case of rain.

Camera – aside from the music and other events at the festival, Spirithaven is a beautiful property with lots of amazing views. Keep your phone or camera on hand in case you happen to run into the resident peacocks!

A good attitude and an open mind – FPF is a great place to meet like-minded people, reconnect with old friends, and take in the amazing energy from music, laughter, and nature. Bring your smiles and your hugs, and don’t forget to pack your best dance moves!
