This is a free event, but you will have many opportunities to support the festival through cash donations and purchasing drinks from the beer and wine garden! There will be food carts and booths so you won't need to bring any nourishment with you. Bring your own low chair or a blanket. Dogs are discouraged unless they are service animals. No outside alcohol is allowed. Alcohol consumption is allowed for those 21 and over in the beer and wine garden only. We do not allow any umbrellas or tents on the festival grounds since they will block the view of others. Please remember to protect yourself with sunscreen! Get there early to get a good parking spot (street parking only) - or better yet, take public transit to the park!
