new things, and totally shook things up! And even though kids are
welcome, please keep in mind that this is a HEARSE event, and should be considered R-rated.
Hearse Show and Creepy Camping
Camping at Hellfest was introduced in 2013. It was so popular, we decided to make it the central theme for 2014.
only will camping be available again this year, but we are combining it directly
the hearse show. So regardless if you decide to spend the night or
not (you don't actually have to camp), you will have your very own site for the day (and night), to display your hearse
any way you want. And you'll have plenty of room to set up as many
props as you wish. Early registrants will even
have electricity on their site!
You must be registered to display your hearse at the event.
The nearest alternate accommodations is the Best Western of Howell (12 miles away). Rooms generally run $90-$100 per night (three times more expensive than Hell Creek Ranch!)
Artisan crafted trophies
|Hellfest is North
America's largest hearse
show. In 2011 we set a Guinness World Record™ for the Largest Hearse Parade. |
The show is open
all makes and models of hearses, regardless of their condition. (This is not a
Concours or PCS show.) We just

be awarded for the best decorated sites!|

you survive the night, we'll have
pancakes in the morning. The campground also has restrooms and showers, so you don't have to completely rough it!
