Yes, there are several companies that will deliver an RV to camp for you, and set it up. They typically cost +$100 a night to rent.
RV renting tips:
Here is one of our favorites:
Your RV reservation is NOT complete until you email firstname.lastname@example.org your:
1. RV size (i.e. 36.5 ft)
2. Amp (i.e. 50 amp or 30 amp)
3. Estimated arrival date and time (*Thursday Arrival is best)
4. Rental Company information & Reservation #
*We recommend your RV arrival for Thursday. We won’t charge you extra to have it dropped off early, however, YOU must purchase a Thursday ticket if YOU decide to show up early.
As a reminder, dry camping/boondocking rv’s and 5th wheels will need to provide their own generators and have their water tanks full on delivery.
(this information is needed 6 weeks before the event)
There are no refunds. Tickets (general admission) are transferable to other people, other Urban Camp Weekend events, or Urban Events Global events. Transfers and name changes are $65 per ticket. The deadline for all transfers is 45 days before the event. If you purchase/sell a ticket, it’s your responsibility to make sure the $65 fee has been paid, and the ticket is actually transferable. Ticket holders from 2020 (COVID) need to show proof of emailing us to transfer their ticket(s) before they can use or sell their ticket. If not, it will be viewed as a no-show, as both 2020 events took place.
RV’s, previously transferred and/or discounted tickets are non-transferable to other events or people. If you originally bought a transferred ticket, special promo ticket, or won a free ticket, it is non-refundable or transferable to another event or person. Tickets purchased on payment plans that aren’t complete, can not be transferred.
If you purchased a ticket for someone else and forgot to put their name in the notes section during purchase, they MUST check in with you. All transfers are done and confirmed in writing via email to email@example.com.
1. Log in to your PayPal or CashApp account, and send the transfer fee to us; note in the comment section “Transfer ticket to ________(first and last name of the attendee).” Our CashApp is $BlackTravelTube and PayPal firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Email email@example.com advising the following:
3. All campers are required to check-in at registration upon arrival to the campground with their ID (check-in starts at 8am). Please bring a copy of the transfer ticket email to ensure the correct names are reflected in the system. Check-in/registration on Thursday and Friday ends at 7:00pm. If you purchased a ticket at the last minute (within a day or two of the event,) we may have to pull you up in a different system. Be prepared to show your mobile receipt just in case.
Tents are set up on a first come first serve basis anywhere that’s not already roped off specifically by UCW. Well over 94% of our guests will be pitching a tent, so the earlier you arrive, the better.
Yes, it’s mother nature, and this is a camping trip. We can not control mother nature. We suggest you dress and pack accordingly.
Registration times are very important. Our registration on Thursday and Friday ENDS at 7:00 PM. Any cars showing up later than those times may have to wait until the next day. In other words, showing up at midnight to 3am in the morning no longer works.
When you pull into the campground, staff will direct you where to park. You will NOT be able to drive to your spot and unload this year, due to the number of campers. Cars that are not properly parked will be towed at the owner’s expense.
When purchasing group tickets, you are responsible for checking in early and getting the wristbands for the group. For groups of over 20 people, we will offer a 20% discount, however, the payment must be made in full. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for payment details.
Yes (but contact us first; additional charges will apply) Each guest staying in the RV must be registered and purchase a general admission ticket. We have dry camping /boondocking, and limited 30 amp and 50 amp campsites with electricity, water and dumping supplied for the RV or 5th wheel pop-up camper. Again, an RV reservation is for the RV only; each individual must purchase a ticket. Also note, the RV hookups currently on sale are for dry camping/boondocking unless otherwise noted. These RV’s will need to have their water tanks full and be prepared to use their own generator.
Yes, you can arrive as early as 9 a.m. on Friday morning. If you want to arrive earlier in the week (ie Monday- Tuesday), pay the campground directly. Wednesday arrivals, Cashapp $BlackTravelTube $20 per person. If you’d like to arrive on Thursday, please select the Thursday “early bird” day pass on our site (registration starts at 9am), in addition to your general admission tickets. (You will be escorted off the property if you don’t have the proper wristbands); IF YOU PURCHASED AN RV, YOUR THURSDAY EARLY BIRD TICKETS WILL ALLOW KEY ACCESS TO YOUR LODGING (a Thursday ticket is still necessary.)
You can, but please bring extension cords so that you can place your generator away from other tents (if it’s loud.)
The RV spots with full connections will be posted the month of the event. Priority is given to those who already purchased a dry camping/boondocking spot for an upgrade. As a reminder, dry camping/boondocking rv’s will need to provide their own generators and have their water tanks full on delivery. Other lodging options will be posted as they come available.
Yes, there will be armed security on the premises at all times.
Yes… Everyone needs a general admission ticket.
No. There’s really no need to call the campsite either; simply purchase a ticket online or reach out to us.
Thanks. We’re open to giving artists, bands, etc an opportunity to showcase their talent at Urban Camp Weekend. UCW has sold out every camp since its inception. With that being said, we’re not looking to bring on (pay high amounts of money) acts that quite frankly won’t add much in value to the overall event. If we say “no thank you,” don’t take it personally. It’s a business/event decision; our campers enjoy the authentic ambiance of UCW without the pomp and circumstance.
The deadline is a moving target, and yes the price will change (as in go higher) closer to the event date. Pre-registration has traditionally filled up months in advance, forcing us to raise the registration fee or cut off the registrations entirely.
Based on our recent surveys, we have stopped selling wristbands for meal plans, as we have been inviting food trucks to be vendors at no cost to the food company. The majority of our guests grill or cook on their own, so there’s no reason for us to charge them for the food they haven’t been eating. This allows us to keep the cost of camp down and enjoyable for all. There will be food for purchase via the food trucks, front office, and by various vendors on site. In addition, campers will have access to their vehicles and can come and go to purchase food in the city. (Black Owned v
Yes. In the event of a cancellation, you will receive an email with your options. ()
If someone you know (or you) would like to be a vendor at the largest camping event in the country, have them fill out THIS FORM, and we will follow up! THERE IS NO ADDITIONAL FEE TO BE A VENDOR FOR MINORITY-OWNED BUSINESSES (PRIOR TO 45 DAYS BEFORE AN EVENT. WITHIN 45 DAYS OF AN EVENT, VENDOR FEES WILL OCCUR.) We have limited space available, so the earlier the better.
A Few Things to Bring:
This list is a suggested list only. Please bring items as you see fit.
We are charged for every human being that steps foot on the campground; purchase a general admission ticket, and you can choose to stay or come and go as you please throughout the weekend.
21 to 103. (no minors, no pets, no bad attitudes)
Sure… we have an open bar all weekend with free drinks during most of the events… but feel free to bring your drink of choice
Ice will cost approximately $10 per 20lb. bag. Ask one of the staff members for help
