Q: Are pets allowed?

A: Well-behaved dogs are allowed at MPM, but they must stay on a leash at all times. Please bring bags or other methods to pick up all waste after your canine friend.

Q: How can I support your mission?

A: Our shows are free to the community. We are funded by the community, Arts foundations, and local businesses that believe in keeping live music alive and bringing more accessible art to the high desert. We do rely on your donations and support to continue our programming, so please donate if you can.

Q: Is Mon Petit Mojave a non-profit?

A: Not officially – we do not have a 501©3 designation at this time, but it is something we are looking into as the concept grows. We received our grant funding in partnership with the Morongo Basin Cultural Arts Council, who supports us in applying for grants and allowing Mon Petit Mojave to be one of their programs. Although your donations currently do not qualify for a tax deduction, you are still donating to a movement that supports artists and brings more accessible art to the high desert community

Q: Do you have a permit for these types of shows?

A: Per San Bernardino County Ordinance § 85.16.030, our events fall under the “Any Class II minor event with an anticipated attendance of less than 200 persons per day” and as such do not require a permit. Nonetheless, we follow careful guidelines and operations expected of any event producer in the county. Our events are private, RSVP-only, with RSVPs open to the entire community. You cannot drop in on the day of the show, you must RSVP in advance. Most importantly, our neighbors are well aware of and supportive of our shows, and we respect all noise ordinances.

Q: Why do I have to sign a liability waiver?

A: While we make every effort possible to produce a fun and safe show, we cannot know every incident that may arise. A liability waiver protects us and also makes you more aware of your surroundings. The risks in attending the concerts include, but are not limited to: wildlife (such as rattlesnakes), natural disasters (such as COVID-19), and other hazards associated with the nature of the general landscape of the Mojave Desert.

Q: What are your COVID policies?

A: As a spacious outdoor venue, we have a unique advantage to produce concerts with plenty of space for all guests. With that in mind, we are committed to still operate in a very COVID-safe way for the safety of our guests. Hand sanitizer is available at our restroom as well as merchandise table.

Q: I submitted my RSVP, when will I get a confirmation?

A: We base our RSVPs on a hybrid lottery system. Because some of our guests are not technically inclined, we wanted to make the reservation system fair to give everyone enough time to sign up. We normally send RSVP confirmations the week before the show, but sometimes sooner if things fill up fast. If you are making travel plans around a show, we are happy to look into your RSVP in advance, please email us at RSVP@monpetitmojave.com

Q:What if the show I want to attend is full? Do you offer a waitlist?

Yes, we do offer a waitlist. Cancellations start coming in the week of the show, so you may be offered a spot up until the day of!

Q: What if I can no longer attend a show and I have a confirmed RSVP? Can I transfer it to a friend?

A: If the show in question is on a waitlist, then unfortunately you cannot transfer your RSVP to a friend. If the show is not on a waitlist, please contact us as soon as possible.

Q: I can no longer attend the show I am RSVPd for – how do I cancel?

A: Please let us know ASAP if you can no longer attend a show. We especially need to know by noon on the day of the show in order to release your spot to someone on the waitlist. Repeated no-shows will get you on the “burn list”.
