INTO THE WOODS

We are delighted to announce, for the first time, we’ll be packing up all the things you love about The Charleston Pour House and taking a trip ‘Into the Woods’ October 4-6th of 2019.

Into the Woods is Charleston Pour House’s inaugural camping festival. It will feature three days of premium lakeside camping and two nights of music by national and regional touring acts. The event will be held on the grounds of a true Lowcountry gem, The Charleston Woodlands, conveniently located across the road from Middleton Plantation. Festival attendees will feel completely transported into another world while only being a short 20-minute drive from all the conveniences of Charleston. In true Pour House fashion, the lineup, production, and experience will be first-rate and unlike anything else happening in the area.

What is your pet policy?

Service animals are allowed, all other dogs are not!

Into the Woods welcomes and supports the rights and attendance of all persons with disabilities that rely on the special skills of a trained service animal. What we DO NOT support, nor will tolerate, are pets being misrepresented by their owners as service animals, when in fact they are not. So please, don’t do it.

Service Animal Definition:

A ‘service animal’ means “any dog that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability. The work or tasks performed by a service animal must be directly related to the handler’s disability.”

Emotional support or comfort animals are not considered service animals under the ADA and therefore are not allowed at Into The Woods.

Service Animal Policies:

• Service animals must be accompanied by the handler with the disability at all times.
• Service animals must be under the control and supervision of their handler at all times.
• Service animals are not permitted to be left in camp unattended under any circumstances.
• Handlers are required to be prepared for, and clean-up after, their animals at all times.
• We reserve the right to remove and/or refuse access to any service animal from the campgrounds or venues if that animal is deemed to be a health or safety threat to festival patrons, staff, or other service animals, or in violation of these policies.
• All service animals must be credentialed by the ITW staff (see the procedures below).

Service Animal Procedures:

All patrons with disabilities attending Into the Woods this year with a service animal will need to have that animal credentialed by Into the Woods staff at the main gate.

What will you need to do? It’s easy. Once you arrive, come to the Main Gate. Staff will speak with you, record your contact information and give you a collar tag for your service animal.

Is this a family friendly event?

Absolutely! Into the Woods is a family friendly event, however we will not have activities and programming geared specifically toward children at this event. We plan on doing more family friendly events that will include youth programming in the future.

Are fires allowed?

Yes, Fires are allowed, only in raised fire pits. No fires on the ground, no digging holes. We will have large community fire pits placed throughout the site. Firewood will be for sale on site. Festival goers can also gather wood on site.

• No outside firewood allowed

Is generator usage ok?

Generators (whisper generators (60db or less) only, are only allowed in upgraded camping areas. No generators will be allowed in primitive camping.
