Rules and Safety

The 5 Rules of Arkadia

  1. Radical Expression
    • Speak and act your truth. This is the way.
  2. Radical Self-Reliance
    • Your power and magic is in direct proportion to the responsibility you take for your experience.
  3. Redeem ‘The Stranger’
    • In a culture that assumes strangers are dangerous, assuming those you meet here are kind, loving, and trustworthy, is a revolutionary act.
  4. The Regenerative Rule
    • Leave each moment and place better than you found it.
  5. Remember, It’s a Ceremony
    • From the first whisper until far after you've returned home, the medicine of the container is working on you. Your triggers, transformations, resistance, and breakthroughs are designed for you, by you, and supported by us all.

Health & Safety Guidelines

While attending ARKADIA, in the case of an emergency, please contact the nearest staff or security member for help. There are medics onsite who are fully equipped to deal with any situation or transport any attendee to the closest medical facility if needed. Keep in mind that this festival is outdoors and come prepared for any weather. This includes sun hats and sunscreen, sweaters, raincoats, and sturdy shoes. Upon arrival, visit the ARKADIA Welcome Center to get oriented, note the location of exits, information points, first aid areas, and water refill stations. Please cooperate with staff, security, and police. We are all here to help make sure that everyone feels safe and free to fully present for this experience. Also, as this event is held at Melvin Brewing, please drink alcohol responsibly. Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and electrolytes. While there will be 24 hour security onsite, we cannot be responsible for lost or stolen items. When leaving camp, please take valuables with you and lock your car and tent. Since your car will not be close-by to your campsite, be aware that valuables stored in cars/tents are not the responsibility of Fit For Service or Melvin Brewing.
