Most vehicles will be parked in our main lot, which is directly adjacent to the venue. There is no satellite parking or shuttle system from the parking lot. This lot is for parking only – No camping! Anyone found camping in the car parking lot will be asked to move by our friendly security team.
Your first stop upon arrival is the General Parking lot. All vehicles parking in the General Lot are subject to a $20 single use impact fee or $40 unlimited in-and-out event pass (Cash only!)
Camping is included in all multi-day event passes. There is quite a bit of shade at Rancho La Merced, however you may want to bring some type of shade structure to ensure your campsite is covered.
If you are in CAR CAMPING, you will be guided and parked in a designated location by one of our parking staff and cannot move your car until you exit at the end of the event to ensure the highest level of safety. There is no ‘In & Out’ for Car Camping.
YES! Our Village is home to a wide array of wonderful vendors with a focus on locally sourced and organically grown ingredients. In addition, our very own Envision Cafe Serves jungle gourmet meals and Envision Coffee. The Villages Witches Elixir Bar also serves great beverages and treats.
While our offerings provide many options for dietary needs such as vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free, please plan ahead if you have special dietary restrictions or severe allergies.
Fresh, local organic produce and other local goods will be on sale at the Envision Fresh Market on site. There is also a grocery store in Uvita which carries most basic products, but be sure to bring any specific medications and comfort items with you.
We are a Reusables-Only event! The first time you purchase a meal, you pay a one-time fee for your dishware and utensils. After you eat, bring your dishes to the Dish Center and exchange them for a dish ticket, which can be used to acquire your dishes at your next meal. Repeat the process throughout the weekend. The small fee helps us produce less waste and conserve water.
You may bring your own cup for beverages, but all food must be served on Envision dishware. For those who choose to prepare their own food, there will be a dishwashing station and access to clean hot water.
We provide a 24hr bag check system located in the large blue shipping container in the center of the venue. There is also a new item check for smaller items near the entrance to the beach. Don’t leave your belongings on the beach, we’d hate for anything to get taken or misplaced.
We encourage you to store any valuables here and not leave them unattended at your campsite. At the Main Bag Check regular items (day pack size or less) $6 single use $20 weekend – Addition fee for large and fragile items – At the Beach Item Check small items only $6 single use $20 weekend – At both bag checks its an additional $5 to store fragile items safely. We also offer a SUPER weekend Pass – $30 for both bag checks for regular items only.
Absolutely! We have a fully interactive children’s zone with professional staff and entertainers. We encourage families of all shapes and sizes to be a part of our event. Please note that we do not offer a daycare service, so we ask that you stay with your children and enjoy the family activities together.
Children under 12 are FREE. Upon arrival, the box office staff will write the parent’s name and contact number on each child’s wristband. This is for safety, and we ask you to stay with your young children at all times.
While we do provide filtered drinking water to our guests, please help us end single use by bringing only large refillable containers for your campsite and a metal container for yourself. We will have some Envision water bottles for sale at our merchandise store.
Showers are available during specific hours, posted at the showers, with a shower voucher. Shower vouchers can be purchased at the showers during the event.
Please bring ONLY biodegradable soap such as Doctor Bronner’s Magic Soaps for shower use. Please avoid any glass bottles for housing your soaps!
We ask that you be mindful of your use – clean water in the jungle is a privilege that we are proud to offer.
Yes. We have a thorough application process to make sure each applicant is qualified and certified to work.
Applications are open now! However, since we can only accept a fraction of the people who apply, we recommend purchasing your ticket now. If you buy your Envision Pass now and then get accepted to be a volunteer, you can use your ticket as your fee and refundable deposit.
There are always ways to contribute and collaborate! Explore – if you are meant to share a certain gift, the chance to express it will make itself available! That said, please be sure that you have confirmed or purchased your ticket before arriving at Envision.
