The hour-by-hour band schedule, or “stage schedule” will be announced in March, if not earlier. We will promote, in advance, when the hour-by-hour schedule will be announced. Please follow us on our social media pages and sign up for our e-blast newsletter to always be in the loop.

The pond is off limits — no swimming, fishing or entering the pond at any time. NO glass, outside alcohol, weapons, fireworks, drugs, nor drones are allowed. NO personal ATVs, golf carts etc, are allowed on the property. NO loud generators. NO pets.

Grills are permitted. Smokers are not permitted.

Fires are allowed only if we do not have any local fire restrictions in place. Fires must be in an elevated fire bowl (not provided).

These rules apply to within the festival AND in the campground. No pets in RVs in the campground permitted. No exceptions.

What is can I bring? What's prohibited?

We will have a great variety of yummy food vendors. Feel free to prepare your own meals at your campsite as well. We’ll have free bottle filling stations for water in the festival viewing areas and in campgrounds. Bring a bottle! An excellent selection of craft beer and wine will be available near our stage areas. Valid photo identification is required to purchase adult beverages. You are allowed to bring your own food and non-alcoholic beverages into the music viewing areas, but you cannot bring your own alcohol.

No. Outside alcohol is not permitted at Rooster Walk due to the Virginia ABC permit that we hold for this event. Vehicles entering Pop’s Farm may be subject to random searches (trunk, coolers, backseat, etc.). In addition, patrons walking from the parking lots and campgrounds into the “festival area” where our stages are located will be subject to a mandatory bag check. Confiscated alcohol will not be returned to the patron. Ticket refunds will not be issued due to alcohol confiscations.

Inside the “festival area,” we sell beer, wine, hard ciders, hard seltzers and liquor drinks to patrons. These alcoholic beverages may not leave the “festival area,” however. This means you can’t take an alcoholic drink from the “festival area” through a security point bag check, on your way to the campground or parking lot.

QUIET generators are permitted in the General Admission and VIP RV areas, though they must be turned off at night from 10pm until 8am

Fires are allowed only if we do not have any local fire restrictions in place. Fires must be in an elevated fire bowl (not provided).

Grills are permitted. Smokers are not permitted.

NO glass, outside alcohol, weapons, fireworks, drugs, nor drones are allowed. NO personal ATVs, golf carts etc, are allowed on the property. NO loud generators. NO pets. NO one-wheels in the venue.

Legitimate, certified Service Animals are allowed at the festival, however “emotional support” animals are not. In order to be admitted to the festival and remain at the festival, a Service Animal must:

  • Be needed due to a specific disability of the owner
  • Be trained to perform a specific task that is directly related to the owner’s disability.
  • Have its documentation and identification tags visible and legible on the harness/leash at all times
  • Remain on leash, in direct charge of the owner, at all times
  • Have its waste/droppings cleaned up and properly disposed of immediately by its caretakers
  • Not show any aggressiveness, growling, or consistent/repeated barking

Rooster Walk takes place at Pop’s Farm, a 150-acre outdoor music venue in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The venue is not mountainous but there are a lot of hills. We have very, very few paved surfaces. The road network throughout the venue is gravel, and the open public spaces in front of stages and around food/craft vendors are mowed grassy areas. Our tent camping areas are predominantly under mature hardwood canopy, though some of the RV/Tow-Behind Camper areas are in open grassy fields.

As such, it it pretty difficult to get from stage to stage in a wheelchair (harder than on crutches). We do have ADA Golf Cart Shuttle Services that can help transport you from area to area (with the wheelchair if the wheelchair is collapsible), though not within the stage fields. All of our golf cart shuttles must stay on the roads, so you would have to get to the road to be able to get picked up by an ADA shuttle. You can stop anyone with a radio to request an ADA shuttle along the road if you aren’t already in a designated shuttle stop. You would still need to navigate within the amphitheater (stage footprint) on your own because we can’t allow carts in these areas.

We offer two options to park with or near your vehicle – Premium Near Car Camping & GA Near Car Camping. Both options allow you to camp beside or within 100 feet of your personal vehicle.

How close you are to your vehicle will depend on availability of space at the time you park and will be directed by the parking attendant. 

The GA On-Site Near Car Camping area is split into camping zones. Let the parking attendant know when you arrive which area you prefer. Here are the otions:

  • Quiet Near Car Camping
  • Not-so-Quiet Near Car Camping
  • Not Quiet Near Car Camping
  • Family Near Car Camping

Other camping areas (like VIP tent camping and Premium Near Car Camping) are not able to be split into zones.

Yes, we will have ice available for purchase, along with many other necessities at the General Store (located near the festival merch tent in the middle of the venue). Ice is also available for purchase at the Eye Level Bar on the GA Camping Ridge.

Anyone with a 4-day GA, a Sunday single day pass, or a 3-day GA pass (but doesn’t arrive until Friday or later) is permitted to camp on Sunday night. Everyone must be off the venue site by 10am on Monday.

Yes, we will have a shower trailer on the General Admission camping ridge and a shower trailer in VIP for VIP patrons. Showers cost $5 per shower, so be sure to bring cash.

We encourage carpooling! For that reason, we permit each vehicle to have two tents per Car Camping/ Premium Car Camping pass purchased. We ask that patrons are reasonable with the amount of space that they take up (no unneccessary or greedy “sprawling”), and we ask that patrons are kind and respectful toward their camping neighbors.

Unfortunately, no. Virginia law doesn’t permit outside alcohol at all when there is an alcohol permit on the premises. We try to keep our prices really low to accommodate.

The festival itself does not provide a sewage truck, but the portajohn company that is on site all weekend does provide pump outs. You’ll see the big pump trucks around the venue every day and patrons usually flag down the driver and line up an individual pump out for a fee. Otherwise, you would dump off site. One option that our staff frequents is Indian Heritage RV Park in Martinsville, VA for a fee. 

QUIET generators are permitted in the General Admission and VIP RV areas, though they must be turned off at night from 10pm until 8am.

Camping or sleeping in a vehicle in the GA/ VIP Car Parking areas is not permitted. No exceptions.

No, an RV requires an RV pass (large or small). RVs are not permitted in the Car Camping areas.

If you can park your vehicle in a standard grocery store parking space, you will want to purchase a GA Near Car Camping Pass or a Premium Near Car Camping Pass.

 

If your vehicle extends beyond a standard size vehicle parking space, you need an RV pass. RV passes come in small and large sizes.

You must have a purchased RV ticket that fits the RV you have rented. Be sure you know which gate you will be entering into (Gate 3 for VIP RVs – Large and Small; Gate 2 for GA RVs – Large and Small).
 
We encourage you to arrive at the same time as your RV (meet off-site and drive in together). Be ready to show your admission ticket(s) and RV ticket once you arrive.
 
If you are not arriving with your RV, the person dropping the RV must be ready to show your RV ticket or provide to the box office:  your name, email address, and type of pass that is under your name for the RV. They will be able to drop the RV and immediately drive off site.
Make sure they send you a picture so you can find your RV. If the person dropping doesn’t have this info to verify in our system, they will not be able to drop. 
 
When you arrive, you will need to be ready to show your admission tickets and the RV ticket.
 
RV parking spots are not assigned. They are parked in the order of arrival, as works best for our Parking team for safety and efficiency.
 

A motorcycle would require a parking pass just like a vehicle. In other words, to park on site, a motorcycle would need On-Site Motorcycle Parking pass ($50) and to park off-site, a motorcycle would need a Mom’s Field Off-Site Parking pass ($10 per day or $30 for the weekend).

You may only drive onto the festival site with one vehicle if you have an upgraded ON-site pass that allows you to. Vehicle must be of regular size and must fit in a regular grocery store parking space. This includes: VIP Cabin, Premium/GA Glamping, VIP/GA RV (vehicle must fit in space with travel trailer), Premium/GA On-site Near Car Camping, GA/VIP On-site Car Parking Pass.

Patrons with either of these tickets are able to leave and come back into the festival grounds, as long as the parking pass is not lost.

If you do not have an on-site parking/ camping pass for your vehicle, you must drive directly to the off-site parking lot known as Mom’s Field. The closest mailing address to this lot is: 1113 Centerville Road, Axton VA and you’ll see signs when you are there. A free shuttle bus runs on a constant loop from the off-site parking/camping lot to the festival site until the music ends at the end of the night.

General Admission (GA) single-day tickets go on sale in March, typically around the same time that we announce the hour-by-hour music schedule for the festival. We will promote, in advance, when GA single-day tickets are scheduled to go live. Please follow us on our social media pages and sign up for our e-blast newsletter to always be in the loop.

If you need to change the name and/ or email address on your ticket, you should follow Eventbrite’s steps here.

Tickets to events hosted by Rooster Walk are non-refundable, as is standard in the concert and festival business. All tickets state this when purchasing via our ticketing platform. 

That being said, you are welcome to sell your tickets. We recommend selling them directly to a friend or utilizing the Internet to do so. We recommend cashortrade.org for all resales. Cashortrade.org will assist with the switchover.

Rooster Walk’s VIP Tent Camping area is all primitive camping, meaning no tent pads, water or electric. We designate this area as VIP Tent Camping because it’s our best tent camping spot on the 150 acre property. It’s beautiful, shaded camping under a mature hardwood canopy. We don’t designate or number camp sites. Instead, the area is open to all first come, first serve. Folks can camp with friends in groups of tents or by themselves. We ask that patrons are reasonable with the amount of space that they take up (no unneccessary or greedy “sprawling”), and we ask that patrons are kind and respectful toward their camping neighbors.

Portojohns and VIP showers are very close to the VIP Tent Camping area.

No vehicles are allowed in the VIP Tent Camping area. (All parking must be purchased separately.)

General Admission ticket holders are not permitted to enter VIP areas.

The primary difference is the number of beer tickets, meal tickets and VIP alcohol access. Full rundown here.
