ROMP Fest 2017 Survival Guide
Campers are rolling into Yellowcreek Park as I type this blog! Many people plan for months in advance. If you are planning on attending ROMP here's some stuff you may want to know~
From Camping to the Kid's Zone to Artist Workshops to After Parties there are so many things you need to know if you want your ROMP experience to be AMAZING.
- ROMP happens rain or shine and all ticket and camping sales are final!
- Artist Line-up and Schedules are all subject to change.
- Be mindful of others and remember that large tents, umbrellas, and any other items that may block the view of the performers are not allowed.
- A shuttle will be available to take you to the Bluegrass Museum downtown and bring you back. Hours of operation are from 10 AM to 5 PM. ROMP wristband wearers admitted to the Museum free from June 22– June 25.
- There will be dancing and lots of it. The performers love it. If you plan to sit and watch you may want to sit back a bit.
