Food & Beverages
Can I bring a cooler with food/beverages to the festival?
Food and beverages will be provided at festival friendly rates that will be the most competitive of any music festival that you will attend this year! Additionally, there are several Fairport Restaurants in the area for your choosing. No coolers, please.
Is the food included in the admission price?
No, it is not. Your admission price is a donation to the event that gets you access to all band stage (3) areas. All proceeds from this event are donated to Golisano Children’s Hospital. Food and beverages (water, soda, beer, wine) will be for sale at very reasonable prices.
Can I bring a lawn chair or blanket?
The festival band areas are located in parking lot-type areas with hard macadam surfaces. In the past, organizers have placed grass turf over parts of those surfaces! Blankets and chairs are fine. Tables and chairs will also be provided for your convenience.
Where do I park?
First preferred are the two large lots on the south side of the Canal across from the Music Festival, but free parking is available at many public parking lots throughout the Village of Fairport as well. Signs will be posted showing those areas. Please respect private property and do not block any areas with your vehicle.

Shuttle will pick up at Minerva De Land School and drop at the intersection of Liftbridge and Main on a continuous loop from 3pm until 11 pm, Saturday, August 27.

Are the wristbands a separate purchase?
No. Wristbands ARE your ticket and will gain you access to all Festival Stage areas.
Will ticket/wristbands be mailed to me if I purchase on-line?
Will there be a “rain date” in case of inclement weather?
No. Each band stage will be covered, and each stage area will have covered tents to protect all from rain. The show will go on with the fun of any rain added. Hey, it rained at Woodstock didn’t it?
Can I bring my dog?
While we are sure that your pets are very well behaved, crowd activity and noise levels may bother the animals, so we prefer that you leave them home. NO pets allowed.
