Policies
 
Things the Faeries Want you to Know
 
We want this event to be a place of merriment and magic for all, for all attendees to be part of that magic and for all to feel welcome and safe.  With this in mind, we ask all attendees to respect the family oriented nature of our event by adhering to the following policies:
 
Costumes: It’s perfectly okay to come in street clothing but we encourage attendees to wear costumes or other playful attire. For those who opt to come in costume we give a $1 discount off the admission price. If you choose to wear an elaborate costume, you may want to participate in our fashion show.
 
Weapons: We require all weapons to be peace tied with a plastic cable tie. This includes, but is not limited to, toy weapons, decorative weapons, costume weapons, and imaginary weapons.  Furthermore,  anything that looks like a weapon, feels like a weapon, smells like a weapon or sounds like a weapon will be considered a weapon and subject to our weapons policy.  Peace ties are available at the front gate.
 
No alcohol will be sold at this event.
 
Outside Food: Our event offers several food vendors, but you are welcome to bring a picnic lunch along with blankets and chairs.
 
No Pets: Due to site restrictions we cannot allow attendees to bring their pets or familiars to the festival.  Service animals are always welcome.
 
Handicapped Friendly: Our buildings are all handicapped accessible, however, it is a grass site, so please plan accordingly.  Parking fields and some parts of the site can get muddy when wet.  Please wear appropriate footwear and watch your step.

Our festival is built on the collective effort of our volunteers. Come share the fun with us. We always welcome additional help.
