Will the Festival be held rain or shine?
Yes, our Festival is indoors, so weather will not affect us.

There are no ATMs inside the Pavilion. Plan to bring cash, although most of our vendors do accept credit cards as well.

Yes, the event is fully vegan (no animal products anywhere). We showcase how delicious, varied, and all-inclusive a cruelty-free lifestyle can be!

Is the Festival wheelchair-accessible?
Will I have to wait in line to get in if I already purchased my ticket?
