General Information

Can I bring in a refillable water bottle?

Absolutely!  The vessel MUST be empty when you enter the event.  This includes Camelbacks.  No exceptions.  There are igloo cooler water stations located throughout the event space that you can use to fill up your vessels.  A tip: let the water in the cooler run a bit, then it will get cold.  Remember, we ARE on a beach with hopefully a lot of sun!

How can I contact the organizer with any other questions?

You can email us at info@lakeshoreguild.beer, or message us on our Facebook or Instagram page.  Please remember that the week of the event, we are at the beach up to 14 hours a day building the event, so there will be delays in getting a response.

Can I bring a pop-up tent?

No, the Burning Foot site plan is not built to handle pop-up tents, but you are more than welcome to set them up outside the event space on the beach and enter and exit the festival grounds as you wish.

Is there shade / rain cover available?
