Can I go topless?

Yes. Texas is one of 36 states that does not forbid toplessness. Austin also doesn’t disallow it. Many attendees choose to paint their breasts in celebration of Eeyore’s birthday. You might be inspired to the do the same. We offer face painting at the event if you find your painting skills are lacking. We also sell pasties for those of us that are more modest.

Can I bring my favorite pet animal?

Yes, although we encourage you to leave them at home. With the multitudes of attendees and activity, your pet may not enjoy the event as much as you do. All pets need to be on leash. We do allow you to ride our shuttle buses with your well-behaved pets. And remember to keep them hydrated. There is a free watering station behind the main stage; bring a water dish for your pet.
