About Woofstock

When to Arrive/Leave

Registration will be ready on Thursday, October 6 and continue throughout the weekend. The event will wind down after breakfast on Sunday, October 9 with the event officially closing at noon.

Activities

What kind of fun activities will there be to do?

Moshes

Ready to let your inner puppy be free and play with other pups (and kitties and other critters)? We’ll have mats set up for you to do just that. Handlers are welcome to partake as well! If you’ve never moshed before, that’s ok. We’ll give you a few tips or just sit back and watch for a while.

 

While no specific gear is needed to be a pup, we do recommend you have knee pads and hand mitts. You can hurt your knees and knuckles otherwise.

Workshops

We will also have workshops during the weekend with topics to help those new to puppy play and those who have been wagging their tails for years. We’ll have more details in the coming months.

Campfire, Swimming Pool, Ball Pit, and Leather Area

Come get your fun on with our campfire, large ball pit, swimming pool, and leather area!

Games and Much Much More

We’ll also have lots of games and other fun activities. How much or how little you participate is up to you. Don’t forget the hiking trails!

Covid-19 Precautions

COVID-19 vaccination is strongly encouraged.

In order to provide the safest environment possible to our attendees, please ensure you are up-to-date on all recommended vaccines, including those for COVID-19. If you are ill, please respect others' health and seek appropriate medical guidance before travel.

The nature of the event space and activities makes socially distancing and mask wearing impractical. This was not a decision we arrived at lightly and we hope to reach a point soon where this is not necessary.

If you have a medical condition which we can try to accommodate, please message us at woofstockreg@texaspuppyclub.com.

What's for dinner

We have come delicious treats in store for you over the weekend. Your meals from Thursday dinner through Sunday breakfast are included in your registration plus some snacks, bottled water, and other drinks. When you hear the bell ring, it's time for food!

The full menu is forthcoming.

If you have any dietary restrictions or food allergies, please let us know when you register. We will work with you where we can.

Other Things to Keep in Mind

Alcohol & Illegal Substances

Don’t bring or plan to consume illegal substances at Woofstock. Just don’t. We have a zero tolerance policy and will remove you from the event space immediately and ask you to leave TCC when you are safe to do so.

This event is open to anyone 18 or over. As such, we will have a very strict policy around alcohol. Everyone will have a wrist band for the weekend. Orange with "Under 21" means you can’t drink. Green means you can. No wrist band means you can’t drink.

We will not supply alcohol and will not have or allow any cocktail parties during the weekend. Those 21 and over may bring your own private stock to consume during the weekend. However, excessively intoxicated behavior will not be permitted.

Anyone under 21 in possession, in consumption, or under the influence of alcohol will be removed from the event space immediately and asked to leave the landsite as soon as they are safely able to do so. This is a ZERO TOLERANCE policy and there will be no exceptions.

​​

Providing alcohol to someone under 21 (orange wrist band with "Under 21") will also be cause for removal from the campgrounds.

Disruptive behavior will also not be tolerated.

Bio Pets

Bio pets are not allowed at Woofstock due to the rules of the landsite. If you have a service animal, please let us know and we will make arrangements for you.

Clothing Optional

One of the great things about hosting Woofstock at the Texas Conference of Clubs landsite is that it is a private facility. That means you are welcome to wear as much or as little as you like. Please keep in mind, though, that the mosh pit is bar legal.

BDSM Play

TCC and Woofstock are play and sex positive spaces. There are not formal play times scheduled, there will not be a formal “play party”, and there are not dungeon monitors scheduled for the weekend. If you are doing BDSM play with someone new or trying new things, we recommend that you have a friend close by or have one of the event team around to make sure everything goes okay.

Respect others' autonomy and consent. Clean up your own messes. Leave your play space better than you found it. There will be cleaning solutions and paper towels around the outdoor play area. "Red" is the house safe word and must be honored.

Play is at your own risk.

When playing, we ask that you stick to the outdoor play space or areas away from the main crowd to not disrupt others. We will have condoms and lube packs around if needed.

What to Bring to Woofstock

Or at least a few recommendations . . . the comforts of home are different for each person. But there are some basics that will make your weekend much more enjoyable.

  • Tent

    • Make sure you have all your tent poles, stakes, and the rain cover.

  • Sleeping bag

    • Sleeping bags have temperature ratings. They will tell you how cold it can be and the bag still keep you warm. Lows will likely be down in the 50s at Woofstock. Can your bag handle that?

    • Alternate: You can also bring warm blankets and sheets and you’ll be just fine.

  • Air Mattress of foam pad

    • Don’t sleep right on the ground. There’s rocks but there’s a much more important reason. You need something to separate your body from the cold ground or you will get very cold.

    • For an air mattress, make sure you bring an air pump and we recommend a patch kit in case there is a hole

  • Camp shoes

    • Sandals or crocks will work just fine. You need something to slip onto your feet at 2 am when nature calls

    • Don’t walk barefoot at TCC. Just don’t

  • Towel

    • Bring a towel for the shower. Drip drying is not fun

  • Flashlight

    • It gets dark in the woods

  • Bug spray

  • Sunscreen

  • Warm clothes (including a jacket)

  • Camp chair

    • Or a lawn chair. Something you can easily carry with you to sit on in case all the benches are taken.

  • Snacks and drinks

    • We’ll have some snacks but bring a few munchies of your own to supplement.

    • We’ll have coffee, tea, water, and lemonade but we will not have sodas so bring your own

    • We also recommend an ice chest to keep your drinks cold for the weekend

  • Battery Powered Lantern

    • You’ll want light in your tent.

    • Do not use propane lanterns inside your tent. There are fire hazards and carbon monoxide hazards. Just don’t do it.

    • If you want a cheep but amazing lantern, we recommend something like the inflatable solar LED lanterns

  • Personal hygiene items

    • Tooth brush, soap, shampoo, deodorant, medications

 

Some may bring electric fans. Don’t forget your cell phone charger and bring an extension cord.
