faq: A few things overall:
We like to call our Festival a 'low waste' event. In other words, please try to use compostable or biodegradable products...and MAKE SURE to 'pack out' what you 'pack in'! Look after our gorgeous setting...our town...our World. You dig? :)
Bringing alcohol on to the Alchemist Mainstage property is forbidden. One can purchase beer and cider at the Mainstage. Bringing alcohol OFF the property is also forbidden. Please consume what you buy on premises and dispose of the containers responsibly. In fact consume the beer and cider responsibly as well. Be smart...
Food? Sure, bring a sandwich - but we warn you, you just might want to eat here - we'll have some great vendors; all sorts of snacks, too! In addition, several of our Festival sponsors are local restaurants that are on the Mountain Road or in the Village...real close by!
Water, water everywhere and...Please, we beg you, don't bring tons of plastic bottles to the site! Why? Well because they are the bane of our existence! We will have refilling stations for you...so bring a bottle, a metal thermos...anything but plastic!
Dogs!! Sure, bring our pooch...but your special friend MUST BE on a leash at all times...and yeah...CLEAN UP!!
The Festival events are FREE - there will be no ticketed events or cover charges. Visitors to the Festival are urged to park, walk or bike around and visit multiple venues over the weekend - we've a lot of great music for you!
