Visit our page, Getting to the Fest, to find out information about parking, transit, and accessibility to the site.
Persons with low mobility are best to park in the Muskoseepi pavilion parking lot, and enter the festival via Gate 2. Even though Gate 2 does provide box office services, our volunteers will help those with accessibility needs with ticket purchases and/or will call.
There are two gates for the festival; The Main/West Gate (1 block east of 105 St and 104 Ave) near the college, and the East Gate (just northwest of the Muskoseepi pavilion)
If you are collecting your tickets at the gate, you must go to the Main/West Gate; where the Festival Box Office is located.
Gate Opening times:
Friday 4:30 PM
Saturday 9:30 AM
Sunday 9:30 AM
The type of wristband you get depends on the type of ticket you present at the gate. Three-day pass holders will get one wristband for the whole weekend. Patrons with a Single Day ticket will get a wristband that is good only for the day that is indicated on their ticket.
On the first day, any patron with all three Single Day Tickets (Fri/Sat/Sun) can choose to present all three tickets for a weekend wristband. Each ticket can also be exchanged at the gate on the respective day for a daily wristband.
Your wristband enables you to come and go from the site and is a requirement on site to verify that you have purchased a ticket. However, Wristbands are not exchangeable and should not be removed or tampered with. Patrons who remove their wristband may be escorted from the festival site and refused re-admission. All festival patrons, including children entering free, must have a wristband.
Festival chairs should be a max height of 26 inches off the ground with legs/seat no higher than 8 inches off the ground. The height restriction is there to allow for unobstructed views of the stages for all patrons in the main seating areas. Volunteers may be checking heights and will require patrons to either put away chairs that exceed that height or relocate to an appropriate area.
Should you require a high-backed chair for mobility reasons, seating for these chairs is permitted to the sides and rear of stages. Family and friends are welcome to join those who need to sit in the accessibility area, assuming space is adequate for those with needs.
The accessibility entrance is at Gate 2 by the Muskoseepi Pavillion, where there is also Accessibility Parking set aside (not as many hills to climb entering from that way) and our volunteers at the gate are happy to assist patrons.
