Flashepoint is a camping only event. You must sleep in a tent, unless you have contacted the Flashepoint producers and received approval to car camp.
You must sleep in the parking lot, if you choose to sleep in your vehicle. The lot is very close to camping and facilities we specifically place there for car campers and gate staff.
This is a drive in/bring your own transportation event, and please try to carpool. If you need assistance with arranging transportation, contact us! Once you’re on the way, go to the address found on your ticket (677 Spirithaven Lane, Stuart, VA 24171). Keep your eyes peeled for specific details on entry!
If you’re flying into Flashepoint the nearest airports are Piedmont Triad International Airport (GSO/KGSO) & Roanoke Regional Airport (ROA/KROA) both of which are under 80 miles from Stuart, VA. Other domestic and local options include Lynchburg Regional Airport (LYH / KLYH), Raleigh-Durham international Airpoty (RDU / KRDU), & Virgina Tech Montgomery Executive Airport (BCB / KBCB).
You are able to drive your car onsite, while remaining off the grass, to unload all your camping supplies. After unloading, you’ll need to move your car to the parking lot until you’re ready to pack up and leave. There is no car-camping allowed within the festival unless express permission has been given.
You CANNOT bring weapons, drugs, illegal items, glass bottles, alcohol, pyrotechnics (including poofers), or animals/pets to Flashepoint. You’re joining us for a weekend of learning, growth, and professional development with your community, we want you to remember it!
If you have a service animal, you must contact us in advance or you may be turned away at the gate. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your information and we’ll let the land owners know.
Service animals are handled case-by-case and you must get in touch with our team in advance to discuss this with us, as the land owners have numerous lovely four legged friends who can escape enclosures from time to time.
We do not offer discount tickets pre-event for volunteers. We do offer an enormous amount of gratitude, raffle tickets for a raffle containing gifts from all of our vendors onsite (and then some), meals for hospitality and gate volunteers.
If you would like to be involved in Flashepoint, make sure to keep your eyes peeled for Organizer Applications around February of 2020!
