The Festival is completely outdoors, so be sure to check the weather and dress accordingly. Bring an umbrella or a poncho if it looks like rain.  Dress in layers, it is often chilly in the morning hours.  If you have trouble standing for long periods of time, bring a folding chair so you can rest. Stop at the Main Information Booth on Main Street when you arrive to pick up a map that will help you find your way around the Festival and remember to wear comfortable shoes!

​Can I bring pets to the Festival?​
Because of the large crowds, we strongly urge and recommend that you leave your pets at home.  For the safety of your pets and others.
