The show goes on -rain or shine! Festival participants should be prepared for the "uncertain vagaries " of our Alberta climate: there is no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing!! Seating is festival style - please bring your own chairs, blankets, tarps etc. and be mindful of your neighbours' comfort when setting up.

A smoking section is provided; no smoking is allowed outside this area.
