Our costume contest in Dallas was a hit, with Chivers coming out in their most creative costumes to win a chance to hang out backstage with headliner Jake Owen!
That’s right! We rounded up our own mechanical bull for Chive Fest Dallas. Those who were brave enough tested their might and showed the bull who’s boss (with varying degrees of success).
Chive Fest 2014 was the largest gathering of Chivers and Chivettes... ever. If you've ever been to a meet-up, you know that Chivers are some of the most awesome misfits on the planet. Everyone is always welcome.
Chivettes boosted the good vibes by RAKing Chivers with merch throughout the day.
VIP ticketholders partied with our editors and Chivettes in the VIP lounge and documented it in our gif photo booth. Did we mention the complimentary alcohol and food?
Lucky Chivers partying it up in General Admission in extra Chive style found themselves with upgrades to VIP, compliments of American Honey.
Including the impressive Chive Fest entrance sign, You Must Be This Tall To Ride Ostrich, The Big Ass Green C with an awesome backdrop of the city (perfect for photo ops) and many more. See them in progress here.
In addition to classics like the original Keep Calm and BFM, we rolled out exclusive merch available only at Chive Fest. What better way to commemorate our inaugural season? Hope you got your hands on some!
Each city’s local Chive Chapters gathered to hang out with all the new Chivers in the area.
We kept it old school in the Nostalgia Tent with games we all used to love, including a life-size game of Operation.
theBERRY tent in VIP offered a place to unwind with massages, seating areas and charging stations.
We never really liked roughing it at those other festivals, which is free water and cooling stations were available throughout the festival.
