A magnificent all-new complex has been created on festival grounds opposite New Market Village especially for this exciting new event.  An enchanting tented pavilion set in an exotic garden fantasy; King Midas’ Golden Court features climate control, restroom facilities, ADA accessibility, and special parking.  Its location is convenient and easy access to the festival’s superb Fields of New Market campground.
