Children’s tickets are the same price. However, Chilifest is loud and crowded and, in the past, some parents have regretted bringing children along.
We are usually able to accommodate teams so that they are together. When you have paid for your spot, we will send you information which will tell you how teams can be placed together.
Our current situation with RV’s is as follows—We cleared a small lot directly across the street from the event grounds for RV’s. The price of an RV lot pass is $200 in advance, as we are providing security for the RV lot for the duration of Chilifest. If you come without having paid it will be $250/pass. No hookups will be provided. The lot is located across 3058 from the event grounds. We will allow you to bring an RV and park in the RV lot anytime before 11:00 p.m. Thursday, April 7th. If you arrive anytime after the allotted time, you will not be allowed to park in the RV parking lot. Any RV’s brought in on that Friday will not be allowed in, NO EXCEPTIONS. In order to receive the advanced price RV pass you will need to have bought and paid for it by Tuesday, April 2nd at midnight. To purchase an RV pass online click on the “Buy Tickets” button on the home page.
