If children are attending the festival itself and going to venues, they do need a wristband no matter how young they are, as they would still be counted towards legal occupancy at the venues. Wristbands are required for all venues, including all-ages venues, the museum, and, any non-childrens' programming. Wristbands for children are the same price as those for adults because, as part of our mission, we're trying to pay the artists fairly for playing.
There is one venue for family programming that will be free during the first part of Saturday, no wristbands required, which is at Everyday Joe's. Please see the artist schedule for more information on the family programming.
