Camping

Camping is one of the most popular ways to experience the Mission Folk Music Festival. Whether this is your first time at our Festival or you’re an old hand, here are a few things you should keep in mind when preparing to camp:

  • This is not a registered campground, rather one that we create every year for the Festival. RV’s are welcome but we have no hook-up facilities.
  • This year the Camping gate is accessed through Festival parking.   It will open at 3:00 pm on Friday, July 22.
  • Camping is restricted to Festival patrons only. When you register at Camping HQ you will receive wristbands in exchange for your tickets. Campers must wear their wristbands for access to the campground.
  • The Mission Folk Music Festival welcomes teens and children, but minors (under the age of 19) must be accompanied by an adult who will be responsible for them. We reserve the right to ask for proof of age.
  • Vehicles and bags are subject to search by Mission Folk Music Festival staff and volunteers for alcohol or other substances that are not permitted at the Fraser River Heritage Park.
  • This year camping is restricted to Friday and Saturday nights.
  • Sorry folks, we’re going back to port-a-potties and cold showers! We hope to bring back higher quality amenities in the future.
  • Adults $20, youth $10, 12 & under free with parent or guardian. Hours of operation: tbd, watch for updates.
