Hello HIPNIC Attendees,

We are moving HIPNIC XII to September 24, 25 & 26, 2021. All of your weekend passes that were originally purchased for HIPNIC 2020 (or subsequent dates) will automatically transfer to the new September 2021 dates.

If you choose to request a refund you have until Wednesday, March 17th at 12PM to do so.

To get a refund for your tickets and camping passes simply reply to the Eventbrite email with your request. For those of you with lodging (cabin, room, tent cabin) and ticket packages, please call Fernwood directly at 831-667-2422 to request your refund.

Again, you have until March 17 at 12pm to request your refund. After that, tickets will return to a non-refundable state.

If you have a reservation at Fernwood for the Thursday before the previous Hipnic dates (on May 20th), you need to call Fernwood at 831-667-2422 to make the necessary changes to those reservations.  Those are separate reservations from the Hipnic tickets.

After March 17 we will be allowing an opportunity for people who would like to upgrade their camping packages to rooms, cabins, tent cabins or adventure tents that could become available. The 2021 line-up will be announced at High Noon on Friday, March 10th at High Noon

Please stay tuned for more info and thank you for your continued patience and support!

We can't wait to see you all in September when we can safely gather outdoors with a reduced capacity weekend event.
