Come Prepared

NO Alcohol is permitted in the park or at any festival activity.

Limited Seating Available

In the Concert Stage & Workshop areas, seating is limited. Bring a blanket, cushion, or lawn chair, if you wish. Please make sure people behind you can see the stage!
Pets are allowed at the festival but must be leashed.
Mosquitoes may be present. Be prepared.

Weather Considerations

The festival will go on rain or shine under tents and pop-ups unless there is severe weather in the area (high winds or lightning). In such a case, we would ask to clear the park either temporarily or for the rest of the day, depending upon the specific conditions.

The performance tent is large and covers both the stage and the seating area, so the concerts are likely to proceed as scheduled. Workshops under the pop-ups will be managed case-by-case.
