Event F.A.Q.

What happens if it rains?   

This event is a rain or shine event.


Are tickets available at the door?  

Yes, tickets are available both at the door and online.  Tickets purchased online and in advance reflect a discounted price.   Tickets at the door will be $25 per-person.


I bought tickets online.  What do I need to bring?  

All pre-purchased tickets online will get their name added to our will-call list, no physical tickets will be sent in the mail


What kind of food and beverages are available?  Can I bring my own?  

We have great food trucks coming, as well as our award-wining wines and beers! You are allowed to bring your own food, but we do not permit any outside beverages.


Do we need to bring our own chairs/blankets/etc? 

Yes!  We will be enjoying the day at the pond.  Merlot Mike will be circulating and judging the best setup — and that whole group will receive a Season Pass for next year’s Decked-Out Live! Concert Series.  Unfortunately, no canopies or tents are permitted.


Are minors or pets allowed? 

Due to the nature of this event, neither guests under 21 nor pets are permitted.  Thank you for understanding.


What time should I arrive? 

That’s completely up to you… but the best views tend to go quickly.


Outside items, bag check, and anything else I should know?

We strongly recommend you dress to enjoy a day on our 40-acre farm.  As the festival stage is down by our natural spring pond, and parking lot is in a field behind the pond, please wear appropriate and comfortable walking shoes.  We will have a bag check inspection upon arrival, and as a reminder, outside beverages are not permitted. Finally, we do not permit weapons of any kind on the farm.
