Driver license, state issued ID, military ID, passport.

All ticket sales are final... no returns or exchanges.

This is strictly a 21 and over event---so leave the little ones and strollers at home. Everyone entering the fest must present a valid government issued ID.

We love dogs but unfortunately no dogs are allowed into the fest.

No outside food or drinks are allowed inside the Fest.

There will be picnic tables for seating, but if you are attached to your chair you can bring it into the Fest.

Some snacks will be provided. Barbeque Jim's Smokehouse food available for purchase. Before and after the Fest we suggest you visit some of the great dining locations in and around the Elmhurst downtown area.

This is a Rain or Shine event. Please watch the weather forecast and be prepared. Dress appropriately. Sometimes it rains... don't tell us you've never drank in the rain!
