There is only 1 rule at Cake By The Lake.. 

Rule #1

Crocs are mandatory


CBTL is at a private campground in Canada. 

About 2ish hours from the Detroit border, and 3 hours from the Buffalo border.

We will send out the exact address via e-mail before the festival.

Depending on the crime, how long ago it was and how you have behaved since, you may still be allowed to come to Canada.
