Most importantly, be safe, drink responsibly, and have fun. Other than that, we have a few housekeeping rules:
Please respect our neighbors and neighboring businesses by parking in designated areas. Be conscious of the bayou. Keep your kids close by.
Plan Ahead and Prepare
Dispose of Waste Properly (Contain Your Litter On Boats)
Leave What You Find
Respect Wildlife (Flora & Fauna)
Be Considerate of Others

Is it safe to swim in the bayou?
It is not technically safe to swim in Bayou St. John due to wildlife (hello, gators!) and sharp, dangerous debris that lives at the bottom. We highly discourage swimming.
Can I bring my dog?
Sure! Dogs must be on a leash. Please be aware that safety of attendees is a top priority, especially our youngest festival fans. If your dog wouldn’t like being approached by a young child, please leave them at home. With lots of treats, obviously. Woof woof!
Can I bring a chair?
Sure, chairs are welcome. There are designated ‘No Chair Zones’ in front of every stage, so please just don’t set it up there.
How much is a ticket?
The Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo is by donation only. You can donate with cash or credit at any of our 4 entrance gates.
