There will be fun for the whole family, including arts and crafts, areas for the kids to play, and even a chance to make their own tie-dye
It is VERY important to us the all Terrapin Hill Festivals are Family-Friendly events. Since we are festival-goers with children ourselves, we know what it takes to keep kids and their parents happy!
Family/Quiet Camping Area There is a special tree-lined field reserved especially for families and those desiring quieter sleeping quarters. As in the larger campground, camping is available next to your vehicle. Sometimes families like to chip in on community meals and share sports equipment. The best thing about it is that it's located just down the side of the hill where the evening music happens...close enough to keep your eye on little ones tucked away in their tents and still catch a bit of the music.
Kids Village Our Kids Village and playground is the happenin' place for the kiddos. Playground equipment features a slide, monkey bars, merry-go-round, and lots of swings!
A Safe Place... It is recommended that you get wristbands for your kids at the gate and write your name and cell phone number on them. In the unfortunate event your child gets separated from you, we'll know how to contact you. The General Store workers have a radio and can contact security and the rest of the staff if necessary. We do ask that children 5 and under have constant supervision of an adult or responsible older sibling in the Kids Village/Playground.
We are having an open application period for vendors until space fills up. We do not wish to limit the number of Shakedown Merch booths unless we get an overwhelming amount of applications. There will be a limited number of spots available for food vending so please contact us as soon as possible to submit your application.
Contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org for full vending details and our vendors application.
A note on campfires: Personal campfires are allowed, but remember that Terrapin Hill Farm is a working farm and the campground is a hayfield. Please clean up your fire before you leave (as well as the rest of your campsite). Unburnt logs can destroy farm equipment and trash can ruin the hay crop. Do not cut live trees—they don’t burn. A better idea is to share a fire with your neighbors. (Management retains the right to prohibit fires if drought conditions are in effect. Notice will be posted at the gate). Also, do NOT bring in outside firewood at the risk of spreading insects or disease. There is plenty of firewood that can be gathered in the woods. Thank you for your co-operation!
In case you forget anything, the Terrapin Hill General Store is stocked with many of your camping needs, including ice, drinking water, food, tarps, rain gear, flashlights and other assorted sundries.

The Be Kind Gathering is an event to celebrate several Kind groups that started around or shortly after tickets for The Grateful Dead Fare Thee Well 50 Year Anniversary shows went on sale. Our group of Backstagers, Limboheads, Ripplers, and Clams are part of a larger community of kind, sharing, music loving, and more specifically Grateful Dead music loving souls that are a little more adventuresome than most. It is time to get out of Facebook, come out to Kentucky, share the music, and create memories that will last a lifetime!PURCHASE TICKETS TODAY
**Note: A GPS will find Mackville Road but not the entrance to the festival. Here's how to find us: When you get about 7 miles west of Harrodsburg on Rt. 152 (Mackville Rd), after you cross a cement bridge there will be a straight stretch of road. After you pass a small stone house on the left, look for signs for the festival entrance. If you start going back up the hill you've passed it.
