***Unfortunately we do need the Stinkin' Rules***
Before we even start let us say this, "No Pets, No Family Size Frozen Lasagnas, and No Wire Coat Hangers!"
If you bring the first two we will use the third on you.


1. Two-way radios are permitted on site, but you must stay off the staff frequency.

2. Drugs will not be tolerated.

3. ID bracelets must be worn and visible at all times.

4. Trash containers are provided throughout the site, please use them!

5. There is a recycling center outside the main hall, please use it!

6. Firearms, WMDs, drunken behavior, bad attitudes, violence, failure to realize "no means no" (unbelievable that we have to even print this), or other inappropriate behavior will not be tolerated. WE AIN'T KIDDIN'.

7. Do not dispose of your cigarettes on the ground, butt cans have been provided throughout the site, please use them.

8. Do not move mattresses from one cabin to another, there is a fine from the park for that.

9. Remember that your children are your responsibility (and while it may take a village this ain't it) they are not to be left unattended at any time. Any who are found wandering will be jacked up on caffine, sugar and given a puppy before they are returned to you.

10. The kitchen is off limits to everyone except those working there, no exceptions. Violators will be cooked and eaten.

11. Leave your personal disagreements at home. Fighting, arguments or other rude behavior will not be tolerated. Act as if your mother was watching you (and that she raised you well).

12. No swimming in the lake, the snapping turtles will bite off your dangly bits.

13. You must work your 1hour and fifteen minutes of volunteer time at the time you committed to it at the front gate. Otherwise, you will be hunted down and made to wash all of the dinner dishes. Plus we will tell everyone you are a slacker!

14. There are two designated fire pit areas. NO OTHER FIRES ARE ALLOWED. There is a $200 fine imposed by the park for unauthorized fires and you will pay it!

15. You will receive a large trash bag at the gate. At the end of your stay, place your garbage in the dumpster outside the main hall. If you need another trash bag, just ask a staff member.

16. After 10 PM all drumming must be at the lakeside firepit.

17. After midnight is quiet time.

18. You are responsible for cleaning your cabin or campsite before you leave. Please be considerate and leave the area in the condition it was when you arrived. Better would be better. Each cabin must be swept and mopped. Cleaning equipment is available in each bathhouse. This is a posted list on each cabin for check-out duties.

19. You must be gone from the site by 12:00 Noon on Sunday, no exceptions.

20. Only service animals are allowed on site, no pets.

21. Clothing is not optional. Please keep your clothes on at all times. This event is being held on state property and we do not wish to scare the locals.

22.  Do not write on the cabin wall for Odin's sake you are not in kindergarten!

23. There is a designated fire tender, do not play in the fire, add wood to the fire, poke the fire or jump the fire. 

PUF exists for your enjoyment and comfort. By signing the waiver at the front gate, you agreed to abide by all state, federal, civil laws, festival rules and campground rules. PUF Staff will act if laws or rules are broken or your behavior disturbs a significant percentage of attendees. Such behavior can result in your ejection, probation for a certain time frame, long-term suspension or being banned permanently. PUF reserves the right to refuse admission to anyone for any reason not explicitly prohibited by law. The use of alcohol is prohibited in all public areas of the festival. No original containers. The legal age to buy and consume alcoholic beverages in Tennessee is 21. Anyone who knowingly provides alcoholic beverages to a minor will be expelled from the festival and reported to local authorities. Drink responsibly, drunken behavior will not be tolerated. No smoking indoors or out side class areas, ritual circles, bathrooms, port-a-potties, or around the doors of common buildings. If someone asks you to move away from them while you are smoking, please do so. Smoking is allowed in the meeting area in Vendor Row. Use the receptacles. Weapons, whether concealed or open, are inappropriate and strictly prohibited at PUF. Ritual blades are permitted but must be peace tied. Harassment is any behavior which annoys, alarms, or threatens another person or group. This includes unwanted physical contact, following someone around a public area, threats of physical violence, or touching someone in a sexual manner. It’s simple “NO MEANS NO” under all circumstances. Harassment of festival members online or in electronic venues will be treated as seriously as physical harassment. If you aren't sure what constitutes harassment, err on the side of caution and restrict your contact. If you have been harassed, please report the matter to a staffer. We need to know about any incidents during the festival to be able to take immediate action. If you have been accused of harassment and feel that a staff member's response was unjustified, you may appeal to the festival director, but her decision will be final. If you feel you have been the victim of criminal conduct, contact a staff representative immediately. If you have difficulty with another guest, call for someone from staff to arbitrate the issue. If you wish to report an incident after the festival, or would like to express your concern about an incident that occurred outside of PUF involving a festival attendee, including any restraining orders or no contact orders you have a person, you may email PUF at any time at paganunityfest@gmail.com. It is vital that we know of any such orders in advance of the festival. Video, audio recording and photography are allowed, but if individuals do not wish to be photographed or filmed, it is expressly forbidden. If you are not the parent or legal guardian of a minor, do not photograph minors. If you have permission to photograph a minor from a parent or legal guardian, do not post any such photographs online unless you have permission. Do not post any photographs online unless you have permission. If you need medical attention, contact a staff member immediately, we have first aid. In case of serious injury or illness we have a list of available medical establishments. Do not throw trash or cigarette butts in either of the fires. Fires are only allowed in two places and we have fire tenders. Please ask before you try and add wood to the fires. Take care to recycle, Mother Earth will thank you for it. Walk your talk. We do not provide feast gear. If you did not bring any, please purchase some at the PUF store. You may also purchase other necessities there as well as drinks and ice. We recognize and honor the divine nature and essential human dignity of all persons, regardless of their race, ethnic origin, age, gender, gender identification, sexual orientation, religion, disability, economic circumstance, physical appearance, body size, marital status, or military status. We are committed to providing an inclusive and safe environment for everyone. We urge you to respect and honor each person you meet, treating them as the expression of divinity which they are. Respect expressions of every person's fundamental identity, including (but not limited to) ensuring rituals and workshops targeted toward a specific class of person are open to all who self-identify as part of that class. We take diversity and inclusiveness seriously and won’t tolerate harassment of any kind. Last but not least, act like you have the good sense the Goddess and God gave you.


Violators of these rules are subject to removal from the site with no refund of fees. You might want to go back and read them again.
