Bring your own tent!

Included in your registration fees is a spot in the decorum area if you have a medieval style tent or a spot in the non-decorum camping site for modern tents.

 

Spots for tents are limited and we will prioritize pre-registered participants. You may indicate the area where you wish to install your tent, but it is not guaranteed that you will be placed there.

 

Decorum camping: Your tent must meet Bicolline's standards of a decorum tent. A tent can bu refused to be set up in the decorum area if it is judged as non-decorum.

Sanitary facilities 

Several porta potties are available on the site.

A sanitary block is found right behind the Auberge. Shower cards are sold at the convenience Marché store located in front of the Auberge.

 

Waste management 

Waste management must be done on your campsite. It's forbidden to accumulate garbage along the roads. There are two ways to get rid of your waste:

 

1- A pick-up by carriage will be done at most camps, twice a day. When the carriage passes near your camp, please bring your bags of garbage to the carriage.

2- Dumpsters will be available at the following three points:

- At 1540, near the coordination building

- At 1480, near the reception building

- At the reception post of the non-decorum campsite

 

We ask you to bring your garbage yourself to one of these three points, especially if you are in an area that the carriage can not access or if your camps are near one of these three points. While transporting your waste and to remain decorum please try to camouflage your garbage bag with burlap if possible.

Recycling brigade  

Bicolline has partnered up with the Fondation de l'École planétaire La Tortue-des-Bois from the local elementary school in St-Mathieu-du-Parc. Groups of parents and children will go around your camps to recover consigned cans and bottles twice a day throughout the event.

 

Please help them by sorting out your refundables (cans and bottles) in recycling bags and they will be picked up at the sound of the bell.

 

Medical staff  

Medical staff are constantly present on site located in the Vieille Ville AND right next to the reception desk in the Haute Ville. Be sure to bring your prescribed medication and avoid putting yourself in harm’s way. While it’s important to have fun, please monitor your consumption of alcohol and be sure to stay hydrated by drinking plenty fluids throughout the day. We also suggest that you bring along a first aid kit for minor accidents.
