Festival may sell out. Tickets at door are not guaranteed.

The Main Stage will be located on the concourse in centerfield. All attendees and vendors will be located from home plate to centerfield on the concourse and in the seats. Although there is seating provided, attendees are welcome to bring bag chairs to make their stay more comfortable. First-come, first-served seating as well as covered seating will be available on the outfield concourse. Re-entry will be allowed with ticket and stamp.

Because this is an all ages event, every precaution will be taken to ensure no one under the age of 21 drinks or possesses alcohol. Everyone who purchases alcohol will be carded. They will then receive a wristband as well as a stamp on their hand. Both of these are necessary to purchase alcohol at all times. Even with these safeguards in place, you may be asked for a valid picture ID more than once. You must be willing to provide this for any bartender, staff, security or police officer. We have made a conscious decision with the police to arrest any underage person in possession of alcohol immediately. No warnings will be given. Thank you for your understanding.
