Drag Performance 2021
Lezapalooza Logo
  • What is the history of Lezapalooza?
    Our Grand Poobah, Liz, was sitting on her porch at Fort Chubbs with friends early November 2020. She began daydreaming while looking over her (at the time) 5 acre property. She said, “Wouldn't it be so awesome to just fill this yard with a shit load of lesbians camping in tents for a weekend?” Naturally, everyone agreed that it would probably be the best thing ever. A couple months later, some time in February, Liz reached out to her friends Carina, Jess and Melissa to see if they would be interested in taking on the feat of planning a WLW festival in the short amount of time we had before the next winter began. That was that! Lezapalooza was born and our first retreat was held in September of 2021. It was a complete success. Liz, Carina, Jess and Melissa, with the help of so many volunteers from the community, pulled it off and intend to do it over and over because we need this for ourselves just as much as our community needs it. A space to call our own where we can forget about the real world and be free for a long weekend of love and community.
  • When is the Weekend? What are the hours?
    The Lezapalooza Camping Weekend will be Friday, September 29th through Sunday, October 1st, 2023. Gates open at 1 pm on Friday and we would like you to be there no later than 5pm. All Campers must be off the property by 3pm October 1st. For VIC pass holders, Lezapalooza can begin one day earlier on Thursday, September 28th at 4pm. Volunteers will be invited to arrive on Thursday at 2pm as a thank you for helping us at camp. We do ask that you give us 1 additional hour of help if you come on thursday.
  • Where is Lezapalooza?
    Lezapalooza is in North New Jersey. We will not share the address of camp outside of that until much closer to the event for your and our safety. When you do learn of this retreats address, please do not share with others who are not coming to camp. Keep it vague when others ask. Please do not tag this retreats address in your Instagram or Facebook Post.
  • Who attends the Weekend? Who is this for?
    The Weekend draws an incredibly diverse crowd in terms of age, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and identity. This is a sapphic space curated for Lesbian women, however anyone who is a WLW in any capacity, including our non-binary family who find a sense of comfort and community in women centered spaces are welcome. Trans women of a sapphic nature are welcome. This is not a retreat for men. Note that anytime Lezapalooza utilizes the word "women '' we are referencing trans and cis women. Any time we utilize the word "men" we are referencing trans and cis men. With regard to these guidelines, we trust that all those interested in coming have the ability to evaluate their own potential presence at this retreat.
  • When do tickets go up for sale?
    Tickets go up for sale on 6/15/24 until sold out or until 9/1/24.

    No We've lifted our requirement to provide documentation of vaccination status at registration. However, we still strongly suggest that you are up to date on all vaccinations and/or boosters before coming to camp. Also, our policy that you should not come to camp sick is still fully intact. We recommend that you be incredibly careful for the seven days prior to camp so you don't get sick and can come and enjoy the weekend. Do not come to camp sick!

    This question is tough to answer as we do not publish our camp location. Please email us with your address and we will do our best to answer this question. lezapalooza@gmail.com
  • Discount codes?
    Please note, discount codes cannot be stacked. Only one code can be used per purchase. If you are purchasing tickets for multiple campers and each has their own discount code, please buy the tickets one at a time to apply the necessary discount. If you cannot do this or are purchasing a platform or private cabin (and need to use multiple discounts) please email lezapalooza@gamail.com to get a unique code. Be sure to email Lezapalooza the name of the camper and why they got a discount code. Example 1: You need to purchase a tent ticket for yourself and another camper. Each of you are volunteers and received a discount code. Purchase each ticket separately. Example 2: You are purchasing a tent ticket, but you are doing multiple things at camp (like volunteering and being an event leader) email Lezapalooza to get a unique code IF YOU HAVE NOT ALREADY RECEIVED ONE Example 3: You are purchasing a private cabin and more than one camper in the cabin has a discount code. Email Lezapalooza for a unique discount code.
  • Are trans women loving women welcome?
    Absolutely 100% yes.
  • I'm Bisexual, pansexual, asexual etc. Can I come to this retreat?
    Heck ya! Thats what we mean when we say all WLW.
  • BUMBLE BEEs!?!?!?
    Yes. They are at camp. Our first year we had no issue and our second year we had several bee stings. Note that the weather will determine how active the bees are at camp. If you are allergic, please bring an epi pen and notify our nursing staff.
  • How physically accessible is camp?
    This site is hilly (sometimes steep), rocky and very muddy if it rains. There are steps to get into some buildings. Some buildings have a ramp. Some buildings are 5 minutes away from others on foot. Campers have expressed that it can be strenuous to get around. Our Red cabin has bottom bunks reserved in it for people with limited mobility OR people who need to be in the accessible cabin for some other reason. These are limited. We wish we did not have to limit the accessibility bunk tickets but we did not build this campsite and are working with what we have. We chose that cabin because it has a shower and bathroom in it as well as a ramp to the door. When purchasing a bunk in our accessible cabin, you will have the option of top or bottom bunk. If you are able to climb into a top bunk, then please purchase a top bunk and leave bottom bunks for those who cannot climb to get into a bunk. bunk bunk bunk AND insert top and bottom joke {here}. If you have questions about the terrain or would like to see some pictures to evaluate please reach out to us at Lezapalooza@gmail.com.
  • Can I arrive after registration closes?
    It is extremely important that all campers make every effort to arrive at camp by 6pm on Thursday and by 5pm on Friday. It is an inconvenience to our organizers and volunteers to have to register campers after registration has closed. That being said, we understand things can happen. Our hard deadlines are 7pm on Thursday and 9pm Friday. Any campers arriving after 6pm Thursday or 5pm Friday need to communicate that with our registration team at Carinalezapalooza@gmail.com. Any campers who cannot arrive before 7pm Thursday or 9pm Friday will need to also communicate that with registration at Carinalezapalooza@gmail.com and you will need to wait until the next morning to arrive at camp.

You can let us know when purchasing tickets (in the dietary section) if you have any allergies however ultimately it is your responsibility to determine if what we have for you is safe for you. You will receive a detailed menu before you arrive to camp. No vegan options are guaranteed. You can always bring any food you need, and we encourage everyone to bring additional food. You can bring a grill if you need to cook. Remember you cannot leave camp and reenter. You also can not have food delivered. If you have any more specific questions, feel free to contact us.

We recommend bringing something to make your bed softer. A sleeping pad, a comforter or some memory foam... anything! All bunks are first come first serve in cabins. Some are double decker.

    None. No options. Staff at Lezapalooza can not get involved with cabin squabbles. We are just simply too busy! Talk it out respectfully. If you feel ACTUALLY unsafe let us know.
