Monday thru Friday there is an option for meals at the “all-you-can-eat” Moody Dining Commons just across the street from Cougar I. If you like a full breakfast, this is very handy. Breakfast is served beginning at 7:30 am. We begin our mornings at the festival at 10 am to avoid rush-hour traffic. We usually eat lunch and dinner together or in groups at various places near the festival venue.
Sample Continental Breakfast: Hot cakes, biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs, sausage patty, tater tots, oatmeal, fruit, pastry assortment and vegan options available.
+20% administration fee.
We contract separately with the company that runs the dining services at UH. You cannot opt out of dining commitment less than 30 days before the festival. Dining pass is purchased not less than 30 days before arrival. (Instructions to obtain Dining Pass to follow.)
