If you’re staying…

There are several fine hotels, motels and B&Bs in the area surrounding the Festival fairgrounds. That said, we should caution you that festival weekend often coincides with the National Baseball Hall of Fame Induction ceremonies in Cooperstown, and therefore rooms get snapped up fairly early.  If you plan on staying at one of the local hotels, it’s best not to put off your reservation.

Fairgrounds Camping

There is an expansive camping area immediately outside the festival gate.  Besides affording room for hundreds of basic campsites, we also have a limited number of campsites with water and electric hook-ups for an additional charge. Arrangements for hook-ups need to be made directly with the camping coordinator at gaifcamp@yahoo.com. There are no guarantees for hook-ups.  Please visit GAIF Camping Info/Rules for further information.
