First, a few reminders...
Desert Hearts Festival is a STRICTLY 21+ event
No one under 21 years of age is permitted to attend; There are absolutely no exceptions to this rule.
Anyone attempting to enter who is under 21 years of age or attempting to bring someone with them into the event who is under 21 years of age will be turned away at the entrance gate.
Dogs & Service Animals
Dogs and pets are strictly forbidden by the reservation. We have been asked explicitly to enforce this rule.
How “Service Animal” Is Defined by the ADA:
Service animals are defined as dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities. Service animals are working animals, not pets. The work or task a dog has been trained to provide must be directly related to the person’s disability. Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA. Therefore, Desert Hearts Festival does not allow emotional support animals.
A service animal owner must provide both documents for entry; Current ADA Certification and Current Vaccination Papers. If you do not have both documents you will be turned away at the gate to find a local kennel.
NO REFUND POLICY
An accepted volunteer position is a commitment to show. No refunds will be made for any reason.
