RAD 2019 Dates

After two year fighting cold and rain in the Spring, RAD 2019 will be moving to the Summer. In addition to the change in season experiencing the Renfaire After Dark now offers more for your ticket as we are changing to a Friday night and all day Saturday format. 

Join us July 19-20, 2019 for Sleepy Hollow’s alt/rennie extravaganza RAD 2019 in Des Moines, IA.

While the event schedule and details are still in the works a few of the major changes and differences are:

  • Season Change – After two years of fighting the elements we will be moving RAD from May to July. Of course, this will add a lot of Iowa summer heat to the equation, so you can expect a lot more water-based activities to keep you cool.
  • Date Change – In the past, RAD has taken place all day Saturday with some morning activities on Sunday… but we want to offer you more! You will now be able to check in for camping as early as Thursday. Event’s will begin in the afternoon on Friday and go late into the night. Saturday will again be a full day of crazy fun with Camping check out on Sunday.
  • Post Parties – In the past, we have had to shut down activities just after midnight to avoid noise complaints, but this year we will be opening up the main building at Sleepy Hollow for a Post Party each night from 12am-2am.
  • Tickets – With the change in date tickets will now go on sale May 1st, 2019. Prices will be confirmed soon.

There are many more announcements and details to come, so be sure to keep an eye on our website and social pages so you don’t miss a beat!
