NEW FOR 2018 - Seating at the Crops
We know how important it is for you to sit by your friends. Our crop hosts do an amazing job helping guests find seating together. If you have a party of Two, Four, Six or Eight guests and would like to reserve your seats prior to the event you are welcome to do so. Reserved seating is not necessary as all seating is on a first come first serve basis. However, this option is available to guarantee that your party will be seated together, without having to exercise our first come first serve policy. There is an additional fee to reserve your seats prior to the event.
- Reserved seating is available for a party of 2, 4, 6 or 8 guests.
- Each guest will need to purchase their own crop ticket online.
- Once your party has purchased their individual crop tickets, one person from the party will need to visit our "Reserved Seating Application" to reserve your seats.
- There is a $15 flat fee for Reserved Seating of 2; per day when paid online.
- There is a $25 flat fee for Reserved Seating of 4; per day when paid online.
- There is a $40 flat fee for Reserved Seating of 6; per day when paid online.

Special Requests: If you have any special requests or needs, please be sure to add this request to the seating application. Special requests or needs are filled to the best of our hosts ability and not always accommodated.
Moving Reserved Seating Tent Cards: Much time is taken to fill requests for those that have paid extra to "Reserve Seating" ahead of time. We ask that you PLEASE be respectful and do not move your tent card or other guests tent cards. All reserved seating tent cards will be marked with their row/aisle number for our crop hosts to assist guests in locating their reserved seating. If tent cards are moved; that party will forfeit further seating reservation privileges in the future. We ask that you please see your crop host if you have any concerns with your seating arrangements and they will be happy to assist.
Guests are not obligated to reserve seating as seating is open and on a first come first serve. However, we know that for many of you this is an important feature that you would like to take advantage of.
