Be a Good Neighbour

Rules, Safety and Etiquette – Good Neighbour Guidelines

In order to ensure the best possible experience for everyone involved, please be aware of our good neighbour policies. This is a very friendly Festival where strangers respect each other’s needs during the Festival weekend. Most of these Good Neighbour Guidelines boil down to common sense and courtesy – Please be considerate to everyone around you

.Don’t Block the View
Please be aware of chair heights and try not to block the view of the folks behind you. No tents or lean-tos.  Stay seated or dance in designated areas.

.Consider your neighbour’s listening experience
Turn off your cell phone and don’t talk during performances. Most folks want to hear the music, not their neighbouring tarp’s latest news.  If you absolutely need to talk –
including on your cell phone – please keep it quiet so others can enjoy the tunes, or better yet, move to the non-listening areas.

.No Smoking
Smoking is not permitted anywhere within Lakeside Park. The Health Department will be on site to enforce.

.Pitch in
Put your compostables, recyclables and garbage in appropriate bins provided.. Help us keep Lakeside Park clean!

.Know Where Your Kids Are
Do not leave children unattended; keep your kids with you after sundown; direct lost kids to the closest stage so that we can make an announcement.
