Please note: 

No smoking or outside alcohol are permitted anywhere in Hannah More Park.

Alcoholic beverages may be purchased at the Beer Garden with proper ID (Age 21+ only) but...

ALL alcoholic beverages must remain inside the Beer Garden due to County permit restrictions/law.

If you choose to drink alcohol, please drink responsibly, and arrange a designated driver or other safe transportation plan when leaving.

These policies will be strictly enforced. 

Feel free to bring personal folding chairs or ground blankets for your group.  There are also tables and chairs provided.

Sodas, water, and other non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase at multiple locations onsite.  If it's hot, please remember to drink plenty of water or other non-alcoholic beverages to avoid heat-related illness or exhaustion)

Large tents are provided in the Beer Garden. Unless there is rain, we request that personal tents, pop-ups and umbrellas only be used if they do not obstruct other people's view of any stages.  Unless they can be kept very low in height and non-obstructive, usage of these is recommended outside the stage/audience areas due to the likelihood of causing obstructions.  Please be very careful if you must use stakes or any ground mounting for them - there are sprinkler systems onsite (Look for markings on the ground- these sprinkler systems will be marked).

In the unfortunate event of lightning or thunder, for everyone's safety, there will be a stage announcement that all Festival activities are being temporarily suspended, and the Lower Main Field and all open areas will be cleared for everyone's safety for 30 minutes.  This 30 minute period is restarted if lightning or thunder occur again.  Lightning is sudden, unpredictable, and can be deadly, so for your safety and the sake of first-responders and others, it is critical that everyone follows the warnings, seeks shelter, and does not remain exposed to lightning in the areas being cleared. Festival patrons will be asked to seek safe cover in the Hannah More School gym (up the hill from the Main Stage) and/or may go to their vehicles until the weather clears and an announcement of festival resumption is made.  We always make EVERY effort to minimize delays, resume the Festival, and get all performances in, so please stick around unless you hear from us otherwise!

Enjoy the Festival!!
