Flying

Once your flight arrives, you can rent a vehicle to drive to the site, or take a taxi or limo to the site. Shuttle service is also available from either Phoenix airport to the site (see below for shuttle information).

If you’re traveling to the site by a taxi, shuttle, or limo, your gear must be unloaded at the Front Gate parking area and the service vehicle will not be allowed to enter the event and drive to your camp. You must make prior arrangements with your camping group to help move your items to the campsite when you arrive.

UPS delivery of packages to the site can also be arranged for attendees and merchants.

Shipping

Each year, the Estrella War staff makes arrangements with UPS to deliver packages to the event site during the Estrella War. This service is provided for both attendees and merchants, although attendees are welcome to ship items using other shipping companies if they can make those arrangements. While the guidelines for shipments may change slightly from year-to-year, it generally works as outlined below.

Ship to Site

  • Packages should be shipped to Schnepf Farms, 24810 South Rittenhouse Road, Queen Creek, Arizona 85242. Please be sure the modern name of the person picking up the packages is included on all packages you send.
  • Packages are picked up from the Estrella War Merchant Coordinator for Merchants or the Estrella War  Site Coordinator at the site. If packages arrive before you do, they will be held by the Merchant or Site Coordinator until you arrive. Go to Merchant’s point to pick up packages at the site.
  • A drivers license (or picture ID) matching the name on the packages, and the vendor’s Tracking Number for each package, must be provided to pick up packages at the site.
  • Once you have shipped your items, you must contact the Merchant or Site Coordinator and provide 1) the name of the shipping company you used, 2) your SCA and modern name, 3) the vendor’s Tracking Number for each of your packages, and 4) where you plan to camp at the event and a contact number if you will have one available on site.
  • The Merchant Coordinator will not directly delivery packages to you and/or your merchant booth. All packages must be picked up by the owner directly.
  • All packages leftover at the end of the event will be turned into the Kingdom Sheriff as “lost and found” and you can contact the Sheriff’s department for information.
  • Please note, we do not recommend the use of the United States Postal Service for shipping to and from the event; because this is also a working farm, items shipped using USPS tend to get delivered to the owner’s PO Box and/or don’t make it to site on time as express and overnight shipping are not guaranteed. Commercial companies like UPS and Fedex are highly suggested.
  • Questions about UPS shipments to and from Estrella War should be directed to the Merchant or Site Coordinator.
