Rules | Motion Notion


Motion Notion Festival continues every year because of responsible, caring people. Let's keep our community safe and happy. Walk softly, dance hard!

What's OK?

  • All ages (12 and younger are free to attend but MUST be supervised by a sober parent or legal guardian)
  • Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian
  • Re-entry with wristband (vehicle fee applies)
  • Alcohol at your campsite (no glass)
  • RVs and tents
  • Dogs and pets (must be on-leash and poop-scooped!) - Please do not bring pets near the stages as loud music can damage their hearing.
