_____Code of Conduct_____

---> Fractalfest is a LEAVE NO TRACE event. <---
That means we leave this land untouched and as beautiful as when we arrived:
*NO TRASH COLLECTION PROVIDED. Collect all your trash and TAKE IT HOME with you when you leave. We will provide you with a trash bag upon arrival.
*NO CIGARETTE BUTTS ON THE GROUND, they go to your campsite trash or your **** will be toasted like the cigarette.
*NO FIRES OTHER THAN OFFICIAL FRACTAL FIRES. Propane stoves for personal use are OK, but always be aware.
*The stream and pond are OFF LIMITS. The river flows downstream and supplies various farm animals with drinking water. Do not touch, or you will be haunted by the evil water nymphs for eternity.

---> Harassment of any kind, sexual or physical, is not tolerated. Respect each others’ space and boundaries. Consent is mandatory & communication is key. Observed harassment will lead to you being escorted out of the premises.

---> We do not allow drugs or sell alcohol at our events. Know your limits, over-intoxication is immature.

---> If you are made to feel uncomfortable and need to tell someone, we are here to help. Please find a member of our Vibes Patrol team (marked with a neon yellow armband), or visit the ‘Cooldown / Support space’ "Psych-Oasis", (located in the field behind the medical tent).

---> Pets are amazing, especially the furry kinds. This festival is not for them. Please find them a sitter for the weekend.
