If you are coming from out of town or just want to be closer to the temple during the festival, we have negotiated off-site accommodations at a nearby hotel at a very affordable rate. Devotees will share rooms (2-4 to a room) so please let us know at the time of registration if you prefer specific roommates (ideally all on the same registration form).

For groups / or families of 3 or more that prefer a room to themselves, please email 

Please note that hotel accommodations are limited (50 spaces) and will be assigned on a first-come first-served basis.


I'm having trouble deciding which registration option is best for me.

The Registration & Festival pass is best suited for devotees who are local to the Dallas-Fort Worth area and / or already have accommodations sorted out.

The Hotel & Prasadam package is for those who are coming from out of town. Hotels around New Years can be very expensive (in the $150-300/night range). However, we have negotiated a reasonable rate so that devotees from all over can come and enjoy the festival.

Included in this package is airport pick-up and drop-off. All you have to do is get to the airport and we will take care of the rest! Please note that you do NOT have to register for a prasadam pass when you register for an Hotel + Prasadam package.

What if I can only attend for one day?

If you can only attend the festival for a day, we’d recommend getting a one-day pass. This way, you can guarantee your prasadam (meals).

For hotel accommodations, 1-day passes are available for $108 per day. This includes prasadam as well. Please email us via the contact form below to purchase one.

Will I receive a refund if I cancel?

Yes. We will refund the full amount until November 15th. Registrations made after November 15th, 2018 are non-refundable.

Is FREE airport pickup and drop off really included in the Hotel + Prasadam package?


Yes it is. We will need your flight details NO later than December 20th. If you send us your itinerary after December 20th, 2017, you will have to make your own way to the hotel. Taxis from the airport are typically $50-$60 per trip.


If I decide to not come, can I give my hotel accommodations to someone else ?

If you decide not to come, we’d be happy to refund your registration amount subject to the cancellation policy mentioned above. But you cannot substitute with a new person. There are other devotees who took the time to register and we’d like to give them the priority, instead of you giving your spot to a new attendee.

How will you ensure that the registered person checks-in for the festival?

Onsite – Photo IDs displaying the legal name will be checked during check-in on December 29th when devotees arrive at the Dallas Temple.

Offsite – Hotel front desk will check photo ID as well against a list of names provided by the festival.
