2024 General Sale:

Opens: TBD

Cost: TBD

2024 OMG Sale: TBD



General Admission:

POrtalBurn is making huge changes in ticketing this year! We are attempting digital check-in at gate and electronic waivers.

This means every particpant needs thier own ticket. A maximum of two tickets may be purchased for participants aged 13 and older. However, the extra ticket must be transfered prior to the event.

As always, kids aged 12 and under DO NOT need a ticket and can freely enter the event with a ticketed parent or guardian.

OMG Admission:

Any open tickets remaing after the General Admission sale, ending July 5, will be transfered to the OMG Sale.

Please note if you purchase these tickets:

  • It is too late to bring your camper
  • It is too late to register a theme camp
  • It is too late to do anything that requires registration

POrtalBurn Ticket Aid

POrtalBurn is offering Ticket Aid tickets for 2024. If you would like to attend POrtalBurn and believe the cost is too much please follow the link below.

These tickets are in very limited supply and will be awarded based on need.

The information you share will only be seen by the POrtalBurn BOD and will not be shared.

2024 POrtalBurn Ticket Aid will be opening soon.

Parking Passes:

We strongly encourage carpooling, parking is very very tight at HBH and we need to ensure there is enough parking.

Parking passes will be available for a $5 purchase as an add-on with a ticket purchase. You must purchase a parking pass if you intend to bring a vehicle.


The name on your ticket must match a government issued photo ID and will be checked at gate. Every participant aged 13 and older needs to be named on their ticket.

Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult and are exempt from the ID rule stated above.

A ticket with a friend's, partner's, lover's or any other name that does not match your ID is not valid and you will not be permitted entry.


Please DO NOT leave and attempt to re-enter event. Doing so could jeopardize our ability to have POrtalBurn in the future. Particpants in violation will be asked to leave and could result in a temporary or permanent ban from POrtalBurn!
