Not keen on setting up your tent or packing up at the end of the weekend? For the first time we can do it all for you when you stay at the Tent City this year for the Tara Festival . Patrons who have used similar accommodation solutions at other major events and festivals will attest to the convenient, warm, friendly atmosphere and cooperative staff that makes this facility a popular alternative and a great way to meet similar minded friends.
The tents, relatively new , provide on-site accommodation facility consisting of cabin style tents tall enough to stand up in. Each tent will be set up before you arrive and feature an awning, internal lighting, carpet on the floor, camp style beds and roll up screened windows - all you need to bring is your linen (sleeping bag and pillow), towels, camping chairs and personal items! – If you wish you can even hire the linen (does not include towels)!
The beds are camp style stretcher beds that come complete with a mattress which will ensure both a good night’s rest, and adequate storage room under your bed for your camping essentials.
The accommodation will be available for check in after 10am on Friday July 31, 2015 and all patrons must depart by 10am on Monday August 2, 2015.
Hot showers and toilets are within the facilities' grounds.
Safety & security patrols will occur periodically during your stay. Tent City Hire staff will be staying onsite. It is advised that valuables should not be kept in the tents.
Booking is recommended to avoid disappointment.
