Can I bring my pet to the festival?
We are animal lovers too. However, pets are not allowed on festival grounds - City of Pensacola Code, Section 4-2-33B.
Although, service animals are welcome! "Service animals are defined as dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities. Examples of such work or tasks include guiding people who are blind, alerting people who are deaf, pulling a wheelchair, alerting and protecting a person who is having a seizure, reminding a person with mental illness to take prescribed medications, calming a person with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) during an anxiety attack, or performing other duties. Service animals are working animals, not pets. The work or task a dog has been trained to provide must be directly related to the person’s disability. Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA." - U.S. Department of Justice, Civil Rights Division - https://www.ada.gov/service_animals_2010.htm
Do vendors accept credit cards? Are there ATMs on site?
Credit cards are accepted on a booth-by-booth basis. Some vendors accept credit cards, but not all. Beverage booths do accept credit cards in specific lines - there will be credit card and cash lines at each beverage booth. The Children's Area and Coca Cola Trailer remain cash only. There will be ATMs onsite at various locations.
What if it rains?
The festival is rain or shine. We always hope for shine!
Can I bring in a cooler?
Coolers are not allowed. We appreciate your support of local, gulf coast vendors and those that make this event possible.
