        FAB FAQs

  

Can you go out and return during the event?

Yes, your wristband or hand-stamp are your "ticket to ride" in and out, so you may leave and come back as you wish.

Is food and drink available?

Yes, there is a wide variety of food and drink options at the park.  Beverages of any kind are not allowed to be brought into the park.  Soft drinks, water, beer, wine, food and snacks are all plentiful and available for purchase at reasonable prices.

Is there Free Parking available?

All the parking on site is free (but please carpool if possible)."Baby you can drive my Car...Beep Beep Beep Beep yeah!"

What if I lose my wristband or the stamp wears off?

That shouldn't happen, but if your wristband comes off, simply return it to the box office for a replacement wristband. If you stamp fades, you can have it re-inked.

Are kids free?

Children under 5 accompanied by an adult are free in the lawn area only. A "ticket to ride" must be purchased for the reserved seats regardless of age.

What if it rains?

"When the Rain comes we run and hide heads!" We pray for blue suburban skies so we can sing "Here Comes The Sun," but the show goes on rain or shine.

Is there handicap accessibility?

Special arrangements for wheelchair accessibility are available. Please submit a request via our contact us form here. A free golf cart shuttle service may be available from the front gate to a central park location during each concert for all guests who require assistance depending on availability.

What should I bring if I'm sitting in the lawn area?

Bring blankets, towels, lawn chairs, binoculars, and blow-up/inflatable chairs for your comfort and enjoyment.Umbrellas (folding/standard size) are permitted if they don't interfere with your neighbors/fellow festival-goers. No oversized golf umbrellas. “Tailgating” is strictly prohibited.

May I bring camping gear?

Pop-up tents are only allowed in the very back of the lawn areas so they don't interfere with and block the view of fellow festival-goers.

What else am I forgetting?

Bring ample sunscreen, insect repellant and ear plugs for Vera, Chuck & Dave.

What is there to do after the festival ends at 8pm?

At the event, we will announce the secret nearby location of the after-party where the festivities continue with singalongs and more Fab Four fun. Bring your guitars, tambourines and other light instruments to play along.
