You are welcome to show up anytime you want. If you would like to stay overnight, pack a tent,
we'll have a spot for you.
BBQ Friday evening and Saturday evening, as well as
light up a bonfire on Friday evening. If you want to
show your photo slides, please bring them along! A projector will be provided.
For the most part there are no rules, it's BYOB, we just ask that you
do not bring any glass bottles. Alcohol is perfectly fine to bring, although excessive drunkeness will not be tolerated
and you will be removed.
RailFest is a non-for-profit event, although it is not free for the event planners to put on each year.
That is why we ask for a small donation, mainly to pay for the cost of RailFest preparation/activities, and the cost of food.
We do ask that anyone planning to attend RailFest to please RSVP. This way, we know exactly how many people to expect at the event each year, and what preparation needs to be done.
