Unsure of the Float Fest festival format? Don’t stress. They have the logistics all figured out, including traveling down the river, and getting to and from the festival venue. According to their website, they have access to several tubing companies, including local staples Don’s Fish Camp and Cool River Ranch.

Unsure of how you’ll get to and from the festival grounds? Float Fest organizers state that “Shuttles will be available to shuttle people to the festival grounds” from either Don’s Fish Camp or Cool River Ranch. So you can leave your car at the tubing site, and simply follow the throngs of people departing for the concert. 

Your only responsibility for that day? “Float the river then stick around for some great music!”
