How do you LivelyLand?

Is LivelyLands a Green Festival?

We are committed to being a sustainable festival while providing a magical experience to all attendees so please email livelylands@gmail.com with any questions!

How do I get to the Farm?

Visit the LivelyLands Map to see where all our events are located. Visit the schedule page to see when it's all happening!

Carpooling is strongly encouraged (on-site parking is provided)

Flying in/out:
Traverse City's Cherry Capital Airport is the closest airport to LivelyLands events but can be expensive. Grand Rapids Airport often offers more frequent and affordable flights. For more details, visit our Getting Here page >> 

Can I bring my kids?

Yes! Kids under 12 are free, welcome, and encouraged! 

Where do I pick up my tickets?

Tickets are available to pick-up at all LivelyLands events at the ticket booth. Just be sure to bring your ID. You are able to pick up all the tickets you purchased or you can assign them when you buy them so your guest(s) can pick them up upon arrival. 

What can I bring to the Lively Farm?

We want you to be comfortable for a full day of music and fun. Some items we suggest are: 
Lawn chairs
Refillable water bottles

Will there be food vendors?

We are proud to have Betty's Hot Dish serving delicious treats for Music on the Hill on Saturday.  Bring your coolers and a picnic for this all day affair. 

Your Bluegrass & Brunch ticket includes traditional Austin breakfast tacos. Come hungry!

Will there be compost, recycling or trash bins? 

Yes!  Bay Area Recycling for Charities (barc) will provide The Lively Farm and campgrounds with compost, recycling and trash bins!

Will my friend be able to purchase tickets on-site?  

Yes, as long as tickets are available, we will be happy to accept all major credit cards as well as cash!

Is smoking permitted at The Lively Farm?

Smoking is permitted in designated areas, only.  This is a family friendly event so please respect The Lively Farm and each other by not smoking in the main dining, dancing and restroom areas and make sure to place all butts in the bins provided. Drop beats, not butts!
