ASSISTANCE ANIMALS

All Assistance and Companion animals are welcome. The animals should be wearing a harness, lead, or a coat identifying them as assistance animals. Clearly marked drinking stations will be provided for assistance animals.

SENSORY ZONE

Although there is no designated quiet zone, the Botanic Gardens (1 min walk from festival entrance) provides a peaceful environment to take respite. Be on the lookout for the vine igloo by the lake hideaway – a good low sensory refuge.
