Q: Can I buy a discounted ticket and just come part of the time?
At this time we do not issue day passes. Marfa Trip was specifically designed to be a community-building event and we believe this can only happen if we all experience the 4 days together as a whole.
Q: Money is tight at the moment, the investment is a little bit of a stretch for me.
No problem! We have a "pay as you go" option. Just $300 saves your spot and then you can pay your balance off in installments, relieving the burden of paying all at once. When you go to pay for your ticket click the ‘partial’ button and it will take you to your affordable destination dreams
Q. Is it weird to room with complete strangers?
For most of us, yes! But, that's why we all loved camp as a child so much. There is no easier way to make a fast friend than to wake up together. Goodbye vulnerabilities, hello connections! If this is something that you want to pursue buy your ticket and head over to Facebook to join the conversation. There’s already shared rooms being talked about !
Q. Can I bring my family, children included?
Absolutely! We actually encourage it. If you bring your child we ask that you remain aware of their whereabouts at all times. We do not take responsibility for the beautiful adventures your children choose to take, but we do our best in providing them opportunities of entertainment. There will be ‘adult conversations’ happening in some classrooms, we ask that you remain conscious of your surroundings and how those in the classrooms feel as well. Our goal is to allow a safe space for everyone to enjoy.
* We “prefer” table spaces to be available for paid attendees at all times. When communal spaces begin to fill up and seating becomes sparse THIS is when we need families to (literally) stick together. Put little ones on laps, maybe even shoulders and invite those searching for a seat to take your children’s spot. They can all ban together so everyone’s included or find a space that’s a little more quiet to play. During any talk or speech we must demand a silent space in respect for those listening and speaking, if your child acts out or becomes a child in an adult moment (which even adults, this goes for you) we’ll need that to be taken elsewhere so all can experience these opportunities the way we intend them to.
Q. Can I bring my dog?
Yes ! Your dog is welcome at our homebase of El Cosmico. Just like human children we ask that your furry ones are always accounted for, as well. And just like your two legged little ones, we ask that your four legged ones are thoughtfully present. We suggest triple checking at your chosen housing what the pet policy is or choosing our free camping option on site. No dogs after dusk and pick up your poop… human and dog...
Q. What's included in my ticket?
Your ticket gets you:
3-full days of activities in Marfa, Texas
1 - 300 new best friends
Maybe a soulmate or two
experiential field trips
panels + debates
desert photo walks
model + prop checkout
dance parties with 1 - 600 people
campfire music series
our usual weirdness
“And so much more !” said everyone ever
Q. What will I eat?
You will eat whatever your heart desires. There’s a beautiful number of options all around Marfa as well as food trucks at El Cosmico ! Or you can cook meals with your friends at your airbnb’s and buy everything at the grocery stores in town (yes, store(S), there’s two !) We’re all about sharing and caring around here. Our suggestion is grab some foods from food trucks at meal times and head over to the tent to eat with your compadres.
Q. Where should I fly into?
Midland or El Paso will be your closest options. For a list of airlines and car rental companies go here (www.yeahfieldtrip.com/accommodations). It also includes all housing options we could find for you so it’s a one-stop-shop !
