It’s going to be a hot one! Here’s how you can stay hydrated while safely enjoying the festival:

  • YETI Silos are located throughout the festival. These can be used to refill water bottles as often as you need.
  • Refillable water bottles are welcome, however they must remain empty until you have entered the festival.
  • Sealed water bottles are welcome and we have removed our 1 bottle limit. Coolers are not welcome.
  • Water will be available for purchase throughout the festival.
  • Water will be available for pups and is located near the YETI Silos.

Due to extreme heat, we strongly encourage those not competing in the Subaru Ultimate Air Dogs to leave your pets at home. 

It’s RVA, baby!
