A 3 day Campout Festival celebrating life, art, live music, and of course, our freedom to enjoy legal cannabis. On November 6, 2012, Amendment 64 was voted into law.

There’s one sure fire way to wreck your weekend, along with your friends ~ excess drugs and alcohol. Drugs raise your body temperature (sometimes fatally) and drain the precious water from your cells, while alcohol dehydrates you. At this elevation, your body and mind can fry way too easily, and the dangers of combining substances are only multiplied in this environment. There will be emergency staff on site, but please be careful at CANNIVAL. DRINK WATER (and other nonalcoholic beverages). When should you drink them? Drink before you’re thirsty. Dehydration is the number one cause of unhappiness at CANNIVAL. Water makes your brain and body work, and you need them both to enjoy the show. (Not a water drinker? Then tank up with sports drinks, ACLI-MATE, iced tea or anything else without alcohol. Also, foods like apples, watermelon, pineapple and cucumber are like tasty mini water-bottles.) Let us pee completely clear about this . . . the easiest way to tell if you are properly hydrated: Your pee should be clear and odorless. If it’s stinky and yellow, then “urine trouble

- The entire CANNIVAL team thanks you!


CANNIVAL stands squarely against drug use. First, it’s dangerous to your health, especially at elevation. Second, it can ruin the weekend for you and those around you. And, last but not least, it’s against the law: If it’s illegal outside the festival, it’s illegal inside, too.

If you see someone who is sick, upset, scared or clearly having a bad experience, get help. Find a medical tent or festival staff member. Provide all the information you can to safety or medical staff. Our “no questions asked” policy means neither you nor the sick person can get in trouble when you seek help.

Our number one concern is your well-being. By steering clear of substances and getting help for those who need it, you are contributing positively to the CANNIVAL vibe, and we thank you for that.


HEALTH TIP: If you’re not sure whether it’s an emergency, assume it is and get help right away.

  • Pale skin/ skin discoloration

  • Inability to talk

  • Blurred vision

  • Inability to stay awake

  • Irregular breathing

  • Skin that is cool and sweaty or hot and dry (instead of hot and sweaty)

  • Sleepiness, confusion and disorientation

  • Difficulty standing or walking

  • Unconsciousness

  • Seizures

If you or a friend are in trouble, please seek out medical help IMMEDIATELY. Medical and security are safe havens at CANNIVAL, and you will not get in trouble for anything you do or say. Their only concern is your well-being.

The I-Bar Ranch

… is an authentic western heritage event center 1.5 mile southeast of downtown Gunnison, Colorado. It is situated on a 10 acre converted hay meadow, 250 ft off of the Tomichi Creek, at the foothills of “W” Mountain. Connected to downtown by walking/biking trails makes for easy access to and from the venue. Its unique setting is what makes it very special; just on the edge of town, but deep into the quiet spaces of agriculture and recreation.

The venue is a converted hay barn with professional stage, lighting & monster sound. While the sides are open to provide fresh air and scenery, there are curtains that can be closed for inclement weather. The property also includes on-site camping, glamping tents, bonfire pits, full bars, and clean restrooms.

On The Farm, your well­-being is the most important thing! Be sure to stay aware of your surroundings and keep informed about how to take care of yourself for the weekend. CANNIVAL is no fun if you’re burnt out during the festivities.

Our safety (aka, security) staff is trained to help make sure everyone has a good time and stays safe. If you have a security issue in the campgrounds, Security will roam the CANNIVAL area & campground areas at all times and they are there to assist. Lasso one if you need help.

No glass containers of any kind are allowed into the campgrounds or concert areas.
No kegs are allowed into CANNIVAL

All vehicles will be searched before entry to CANNIVAL (which you should definitely keep in mind when deciding what to bring). No outside alcohol will be allowed into the CANNIVAL grounds, prepare to be (politely) searched each time you re-enter from the camping areas - Thank you
