Generators are not compatible with the philosophy of the festival, making it difficult to find a food truck, but we have found one: All Occasions Catering will be on site offering a variety of hot & cold dishes, snacks & beverages. Please bring your own plates, utensils,etc.: washing-up facilities are available,as well as a public BBQ/ picnic area.

Beer gardens will open at 11 am Saturday and Sunday, featuring a selection of beer, wine and coolers.

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 you set up.

A smoking section is provided; no smoking is allowed outside this area.
A public fire pit is located south-east of Main Stage; fires at campsites are not permitted.

Cash only - no ATMs on site

(Exceptions will be made for service animals: they must be designated as such, and kept on leash at all times.)
