The Two Day Town Site
Two Day Town is on the West shore at the Southeastern end of Lake del Valle, in Del Valle Regional Park. Normally a picnic and beach access area, Two Day Town transforms the site into a music venue and campground. Two Day Town stretches from the West shore entrance gate near the bridge over Arroyo del Valle to the Ardilla Group Camp at the North end of the developed West side parkland. By arrangement with East Bay Parks, Two Day Town has use of the area and most facilities for the duration of the event.
- Take I-580 to Livermore, exit at North Livermore Ave. and go South.
- Follow North Livermore Ave. through central Livermore and out the south side of town.
- North Livermore Ave. changes to South Livermore Ave, then becomes Tesla Rd. South of town.
- Follow Tesla Rd. for about 1/2 mile.
- Turn right (South) on Mines Rd. and follow it for about 3-1/2 miles.
- Veer right onto Del Valle Rd. and follow it up and over the ridge to the park entrance kiosk.
- Turn to the left after you pass the park entrance kiosk. This is still Del Valle Rd.
- Cross the bridge over Arroyo del Valle then turn right into the Two Day Town entry area.
- You will be at the Two Day Town Front Gate.
There will be a flat fee for entrance to the park that is still being negotiated, keep your eye on here for more info. The fee receipt must be placed so it is visible from outside the vehicle and is valid for the duration of Two Day Town. If we don’t support the parks they won’t be here for us.
Through traffic (you) on Livermore Ave. has to be in the left lane after the downtown rail underpass. Right (wrong!) lane traffic must turn right. That’s about a mile from I-580 as you approach downtown where the road dips under the rails.
Del Valle Road is very steep as it descends toward the park entry kiosk. It does not flatten out until you are past the kiosk. Large vehicles should be in low gear for this descent.
Camping & Picnic Areas
Tent camping and picnicking is allowed in most areas within the limits of Two Day Town. The most popular camping spots are adjacent to the many picnic tables along the the pathways, and in the grass area behind the beach. Some guests like to be close by the stage area, while others prefer more solitude away from the music. All space is first-come, first-served, but there is plenty of room for everyone.
All RV sites are by reservation only. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more info. Cars are not permitted in the upper RV lot and tow vehicles must be removed from the RV lot promptly to allow for all reserved campers access to their site. There are no on-site facilities for water filling or waste dumping within Two Day Town. Please assure that your batteries are at full charge before you arrive, because generator use is not allowed.
Parking in the west side parking lots is available for disabled persons and Vip spots are available for purchase, please contact email@example.com for info. Free parking will be available in the Eagles View parking area, the Caballo Loco parking area, and along the west side of Del Valle Road. Vehicles will be allowed in to unload camping gear, but will have to be moved out as soon as gear is unloaded at a staging area. A driver must stay with the vehicle as space will be very limited. Please plan ahead and carpool when possible. Shuttles will be available Friday and Saturday for transportation between parking areas and the unloading area. There is very limited availability of staff and equipment to help move guest gear to camp areas, so We suggest that you bring something with wheels to transport your camp gear to your site.
Restrooms & Showers
The park restrooms near the stage will be closed for construction this year, however all other bathrooms with flush toilets will be open for use by Two Day Town guests. We will also have additional porta-potties in the parking lot. We transform portions of the changing areas of one of the restroom buildings into shower areas. Solar-Shower bags will be available for guest use, on the condition that they are refilled afterward, and of course you can bring your own shower stuff rather than using ours.
On-Site Facilities & Other Stuff
Your cell phone may not not have service at Two Day Town. Service has improved (from nil) in recent years but is still unreliable. To get a signal you may need to leave the site and go to the top of the ridge. If communication is essential there is a pay phone in the public campground only, however it is better to plan on being incommunicado for the weekend. The pay phones have a history of not always being in working condition.
The nearest grocery store is nowhere near Two Day Town. Plan ahead, bring everything you need for the weekend, and sit tight. Remember to pack for a no-impact visit, and expect to take home everything you came with that you didn’t eat or drink. The less disposable stuff you bring the less you have to take home.
Prior to Two Day Town, park trash cans are removed from the site. You are expected to be responsible for your own waste stream so leave the disposable items at home and you will have less trash to deal with. We go beyond low impact, striving for NO impact, and because of this the park is cleaner when we leave than when we arrive. Think reduce, reuse, recycle. It does a planet good, and we only get one.
