Seating locations are not assigned or reserved for General Admission tickets and are occupied on a first-come, first-served basis. Each concert takes place outdoors and you may be exposed to the natural elements. Please be prepared with bug-protector, sunscreen, and/or a blanket if you require them. 

All events are considered rain or shine. If there is a risk to the safety of patrons or artists, a weather delay will take place on the d of the event and the concert will proceed when it’s safe to do so. Please be prepared for all weather conditions. Tickets not used due to inclement weather or traffic delays, cannot be refunded or exchanged.

Umbrellas will only be permitted at the perimeter of the concert grounds as to not impede the views of other attendees.

If you bought tickets for a group, we encourage you to transfer your additional tickets to anyone who may be meeting you at the event, making it easy to meet inside the concert area instead of waiting outside of the ticket gate. If you arrive to the event at the same time as your entire group, you may check-in multiple (or all) of your tickets on the same phone. In the event that you are unable to transfer a ticket to a member of your group, we ask that you make arrangements to meet them outside of the ticket gate upon their arrival.

Please note that pets are not allowed at our Concerts in the Vineyard series. If you require your service animal, please ensure they are wearing their service vest or collar, or show documentation from an approved regulated health professional.

Parking will be provided free of charge. If you plan to drink at the event, please plan for a sober and safe ride home or book nearby accommodation prior to the event.
