Is there seating available?

Limited seating is available on-site, we encourage you to bring a chair or blanket to use at the event.

I bought a 2-day ticket but I can only attend for 1-day, can I get a refund?

Unfortunately no refunds can be given on tickets.

Why didn’t you announce last call?

It is against the Peterborough Alcohol Policy to announce last call. The event ends at 11pm on June 19th and20th. Token sales will end at 10:30pm both nights and last pour is 11:00pm.

Can I leave the festival and come back in?

You will receive a wristband upon entry and you may come and go as you wish when you show your wristband upon re-entry. Do not remove your wristband once inside the Festival. If you’ve purchased a 2-day festival pass, please keep your wristband on for both days.

I don’t drink beer, do I have to pay for a ticket?

Yes, we do provide alternatives to beer such as cider and non-alcoholic options. We also have food vendors, merchandise, live music and games available for all participants. New this year, we have a  DD ticket, which allows entry into the Festival for a lower price. DD ticket holders can purchase non-alcoholic beverages, food and enjoy all the event has to offer, but aren’t able to purchase beer or cider.
