Everyone entering Estrella War is required to stop at the Front Gate located on the entrance road to the site.  There you pay an entrance fee (or check-in if you used Pre-Registration to pay before the event), complete liability waivers, and parking tags for the vehicles/trailers you have with you.

Before leaving the Front Gate, each attendee receives a Site or Youth Token, along with pet and parking tags for the vehicles, trailers, and RVs they plan to use and/or park at the event.  Attendees must wear their Site/Youth Tokens while at the event as proof that they paid the proper entrance fee.  Parking tags must be visibly displayed on all parked vehicles, trailers, and RVs at the site.  We ask all attendees to review the Site Rules before they arrive so that they understand these guidelines.

RV Parking:  Schnepf Farms will have a limited number of Wet RV spots available to reserve separately from Estrella War for a fee. You may contact Schnepf Farms directly at 480-987-3333 to reserve your spot; All fees for direct reservations will be managed by Schnepf Farms and not Estrella War. There will not be any Dry RV spot reservations available through Schnepf Farms for this event. Note that These “Wet” RV spaces are a service of Schnepf Farms and are not related to the SCA, Inc. or the Kingdom of Atenveldt, and these spaces are not managed or run by the Estrella War staff.

Fifty Dry RV spaces (18ft wide and 36ft wide) are available on a first come, first served basis for an additional fee of $35.00.  Individuals may reserve dry RV spaces at the time they pre-register.
