How do I get there? 

EOW is not far away.  Do you know where Scottie’s Fun Spot is?  It’s next door (just west).  Imagine you’re driving east on Broadway in Quincy. You pass Buffalo Wild Wings.  You are now exactly one mile from EOW. Look for a very small gravel road on the right hand side the moment you see the “65 MPH” sign.  Slow down!  You’ll miss your turn!  Imagine the address 7300 Broadway. That would be exactly one mile from the intersection of 63rd and Broadway.  South side of Broadway, of course.

How much is parking? 

Parking is free if you have three or more people in your vehicle.  If you have less than three people in your car, it’s $5.

When should I set up my tent and how much does it cost to camp at EOW? 

Camping is free. It’s best to set up your tent between Noon and 5:00 p.m.  Sunset is 6:45 p.m.

Do I have to camp? What if I don't want to?

No, you do not have to camp. You may come and go as you please.

What's the situation with our little insect friends?

The grounds are de-ticked, de-bugged, fogged, and citronella granule is strategically laid down in all necessary areas. All of this is done prior to the event.

Where is the hiking on EOW campus?

Everywhere.  Look at the map and follow the trails.  Be careful of the elven clan.  They live underground.  Ask for help from the fairies.

What’s the food and beverage situation?

This is a 24 hour event.  Half of the people who attend are either camping or will wind up staying until the wee hours of the morning. The other half will be going home because “life.”

That being said, everyone is encouraged to bring your coolers.  Fill them full of cold food and beverage that can be consumed during your stay.  You will not have access to your own firepit.  Nor should you attempt to make your own fire. 

But you should still bring cash, just in case.

The Butcher Block will be serving food from 6:00pm-12:00 a.m. Barney's Tavern will have drinks available.

Are there bathrooms available?


What are some secrets that I should know about?

Can I decorate my tent?  Can I dress up?

Glad you asked.  Please respect the grounds.  The property is privately owned and the person who maintains the property spends much of his free time picking up cigarette butts and the like.  The property is maintained all year at a cost.

You must remove your car by Noon the next day.
