No Pets Please

Service animals are allowed. For the safety of our event patrons and due to the high volume of foot traffic we do not recommend bringing pets to the event.  There is currently not a ban on bringing pets. If they are brought they should be leashed and muzzled as necessary, and owners are responsible for cleaning up pet waste.


Portable restrooms can be found at three locations within the event area. Standard toilets, handicap accessible toilets, and handwash stations can be found in the Community Corner (near Livingston's Service Station on Main Street), by Kindertown (at the Corner of College and Main Street), and across from the Opera House (at the Corner of Boyce and McKibben Street). Please refer to our event map on the Parking & Shuttle page for details!
