Not yet! We will be releasing a limited number of day passes later in the year.
Do you anticipate selling out of tickets before the RMC starts?

Yes! The last RMC (in 2018!) sold out well in advance of the event, and we expect this year’s Convergence to sell out as well.

Do you sell tickets at the event?
No, we do not sell any passes at the RMC. All Convergence attendees must purchase their ticket before Thursday, October 6.
Is there parking at the Convergence? Does it cost money?

There is a parking lot at the RMC, which requires a Parking Pass to enter. All Parking Passes must be purchased in advance as they will not be sold on site.

Upon registering, all Full Pass attendees will receive a link to a rideshare board to facilitate carpooling.

Please note that the parking lot of the RMC is a grass field that may be muddy during the time of the Convergence.

Is there a rideshare board or carpool link?

Yes. All registrants will receive access to a free rideshare board as a part of their welcome email. Here they will be able to find drivers or riders, depending on their needs.

Do I need to purchase a Car Camping Pass?

Full Passes include free tent camping, but not parking or car camping. If you’d like to camp with your car, you’ll need to purchase a Car Camping Pass in addition to a Full Pass. Car Camping Passes are limited and allow the ticket holder to camp next to or inside their car. They are only valid with a Full Pass and do not give access to the event without also purchasing a Full Pass. Only one Car Camping Pass is needed per car.

Please note that the parking lot of the RMC is a grass field that may be muddy during the time of the Convergence.

Can I bring my camper, RV, or camper trailer?

Please see our Accommodations section for information about oversized vehicle camping. Also note that the parking lot of the RMC is a grass field that may be muddy during the time of the RMC.

Is the RMC an all ages event?

Yes! The RMC is an all ages event BUT anyone under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. A legal guardian must have proper documentation. No exceptions.

Will childcare be provided?
Yes, the RMC offers free childcare during all workshop sessions. Childcare at the RMC will be led by a certified childcare provider, and all childcare volunteers have experience in caring for children.
What is the bathroom situation?
There will be numerous portable restrooms on site that will be serviced daily. There will also be several composting toilets for attendees wishing to use this alternative bathroom style. Rustic hand washing and drinking water stations will be positioned throughout the RMC, though no showers will be available on site.
Are there Security and Medical teams at the RMC?

Yes! The Security and Medical teams will be on duty throughout the Convergence. If you need assistance at the RMC you can contact any RMC staff member via the Registration Tent.

Is the RMC clothing optional?

The RMC celebrates freedom of individual expression, and while we love all bodies, this is a family friendly event, so we ask that things stay PG-13.

Is the RMC a drug free event?

Consumption of alcohol is permitted and cigarette smoking is allowed in designated areas. All other drugs or illegal substances are not permitted. Anyone caught with illegal substances will be escorted from the event and may face legal consequences.

Can I bring a pet?

Unfortunately, no. To protect the site’s resident animals, the RMC has a strict no pet rule. Only documented service animals required for a disability, and that are trained to handle active environments, are allowed at the Convergence. If you have a service animal, please contact us before the event.

What if my pet is a service animal?

The RMC is hosted on a private farm which is home to dogs and livestock. We will be able to accommodate a limited number of service animals. If you wish to bring your service animal to the RMC, please contact hello@radicalmycologconvergence.com prior to registration so that we can ensure there is space for the animal.

If your pet is a service animal, you must bring a copy of your pet’s service animal registration documents. We will not allow non-registered service animals on site.

Will there be somewhere to leave items that I don’t want to leave in my tent/car?

We recommend not bringing items of value to the RMC. The RMC is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

Is there a lost and found?

Yes, lost and found is located at the RMC Registration Tent.

Will there be water for sale?

No, single use water bottles are not sold at the Convergence. Please bring a reusable bottle and refill at one of our drinking water refill stations located throughout the site.

CAMPING

The RMC camping area is free form. There are no pre-plotted or reserved spaces, though there is ample space for tents of all sizes.

There is a designated Car Camping area that is separate from the tent camping area. You will not be able to park near the tent camping area, nor will you be allowed to pitch a tent near your vehicle. Please plan accordingly.

Does each person inside a vehicle need a Car Camping pass?

No, you’ll only need one car camping pass per vehicle. Only one person in the vehicle needs to purchase a car camping pass if you plan to camp with the vehicle. Each adult needs their own Full Pass to enter the RMC.
