Register by mail with a check

We still support the old ways! You can download and print our registration form. Fill it in, and mail it to us with your check. We will hold your tickets at the door for your arrival. You can also order lunches for Saturday on this form, and you can join or renew your membership in the Story People, and you can purchase raffle tickets. If you don’t want to download the form, and you are on our mailing list, you can wait for the brochure to arrive in your mail (sometime in the first week of September).

Register online

You also have the option to register online and pay through PayPal (you can use any credit card even if you don’t have a PayPal account). Tickets will be waiting for you at the door of the Little Theater. In addition, you can join the Story People (or renew your membership) to get a member’s discounted rate on your full festival pass. You cannot purchase raffle tickets online because that is a regulated ‘gambling’ activity. See our membership benefits page for more information. Registration carries an extra service charge for purchasing online (Brown Paper Tickets performs a valuable service, and must pay their employees). You can avoid the fees by registering the old-fashioned way with a check, using our registration form.

Of PayPal and Credit Cards…

When you go to our online registration, the payment button will take you to the PayPal website. If you have a PayPal account, you know what to do. If you do not have a PayPal account (and do not want to get one) fear not! Click where it says “Don’t have a PayPal account?” It will take you to screen with an option to “Pay with a debit or credit card”. You will enter your card information, and then click the yellow “Pay” button at the bottom of the screen. Your payment will be submitted to us. You will not have created an account with PayPal. All will be well. May The Forest Be With You.
