A: Yes. But admission to this year's festival will be FREE! You can get free passes  1-5 at a time  through iTickets.

We wanted you to be able to bring many of your friends who might not normally attend to hear the eternal message of Hope in Christ.


<< back to the top


A: In the past we have tried to keep the Rock of Ages Festival an ABSOLUTELY FREE event, as our primary focus was, and still is, to preach the Gospel of Christ Jesus to non-believers, and to provide a way for those non-believers to attend the festival without any stumbling blocks, such as an admission fee, getting in their way. Throughout the years we have consistently fallen significantly short of having our financial needs met, and consequently we have fallen significantly into debt, so we had to start charging an entrance fee to attempt to break even.  This year, we have prayed that more people than ever BRING THEIR FRIENDS TO HEAR THE ETERNAL MESSAGE OF HOPE!  So we decided to make that free......"Freely you have received, freely give". It is a walk of faith. You can still help.......


We want to remind you that even though its free to you and your friends....it's not to us. It costs many thousands to out this in for you.  So, at iTickets, there is a place (as well as our web site donations area)  to help support all that Rock of Ages Festivals have done and are doingwe are assisting with festivals in Kenya, Ethiopia, Honduras, India, France....  So, pray to be as generous as possible.

So, please pray to recruit as many individuals, as well as churches, as possible to invite (and possibly sponsor) their non-believing family and friends to the festival so that they can come and hear the Gospel of Christ Jesus ... and hopefully leave the festival with a relationship with Christ Jesus. AMEN!

Thank you for your prayers and understanding ... let's make this year's festival a bountiful harvest for the Lord!

A: All of the parking spots will be conveniently located at the Napa County Fairgrounds, close to the large grass field on which the festival will be taking place. There will be several signs posted along the route to the fairgrounds on the day of the festival that will direct you towards the parking spots.

A: There is no ATM available at the Napa County Fairgrounds at this time. If you need spending money, there are several banks in Calistoga, CA. that are accessible from Lincoln Ave., which is the city's main street. We may try to have one, but don't count on it.

<< back to the top


A: Unfortunately, we do not. The schedule of artists and speakers is usually something that is produced right around the time of the festival. We would like to encourage our attendees to come out for the whole day, as the most important aspect of the Rock of Ages Festival is the presentation of the Gospel ... especially to non-believers. THATS WHY WE ARE DOIUNG THIS!!!

A: We carefully consider EVERY request to play at the Rock of Ages Festival. There are, however, a few requirements that every band or artist  must meet before requesting to play.

  1. You MUST be an OPENLY Christian band/artist.
  2. You MUST NOT have any profane language, or inappropriate subject matter in the lyrics, as the Rock of Ages Festival is a ministry, and family, oriented event.  We do encourage bold challenging messages to walk in Biblical Christian faith in our current culture.
  3. We desire bands to share testimonies, faith in Christ messages, etc.  as well as perform music.  Gospel content for response is encouraged.

Do you meet these requirements? If so, please send a promotional package to booking [at] rockofagesfestival.com with your music, photo, biography and a brief note detailing why your band should play at the Rock of Ages Festival. Promo packs may also be mailed to:

A: We will have many vendors providing a wide variety of food, so be sure to bring some extra spending money and some empty stomachs. Their sales help support Rock of Ages Festival.

NOTE: You may only bring a back pack in with you.  You can go to and from your vehicle to retrieve food you have brought with you. But, we are encouraging all to support our vendors as much as possible, as the Rock of Ages Festival will receive a portion from each vendor. We cannot do this without your and their help.
