Patrons with Disabilities

SECTION 1: GETTING AROUND THE EVENT

TERRAIN: Grizzly Fest is an outdoor festival, taking place at Woodward Park. This is a large venue with great distances between stages. The grounds of the event is a little more than 20 acres. Most travel is done over natural terrain of mowed grass, occasional sand, some packed-earth pathways and a few paved paths. One difficult aspect of travel in this park is that there are some steep changes in elevation. Despite the difficult terrain, many people who use wheelchairs or other mobility devices come prepared and are able to attend and enjoy Grizzly Fest.

SECTION 2: VIEWING

At Grizzly Fest, Main Stage, raised viewing platforms are reserved for people who use wheelchairs, or who have a mobility disability that would make it very difficult to stand in the audience. One companion may accompany the person with the mobility disability. Families who have one or more member with a disability may stay together on the platform. “Family” is defined as two adults and any children 18 years or younger. Please note that these areas have limited capacity and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. The festival provides folding chairs and makes every attempt to provide enough for everyone on the platform.

SECTION 3: POWER WHEELCHAIRS, SCOOTERS, AND OTHER DEVICES

WHAT’S ALLOWED: Only those who have mobility disabilities may use mobility devices. Power wheelchairs and three or four-wheeled scooters are allowed for use by people with mobility disabilities.
WHAT’S NOT ALLOWED: Grizzly Fest is a crowded event. For safety reasons, powered mobility devices that move faster than a walking speed, or are heavier and larger than a wheelchair or scooter, including two-wheeled scooters, golf carts, or all-terrain vehicles, are NOT allowed.
OTHER DEVICES: Other types of mobility devices will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. To ask permission to bring a powered mobility device other than a wheelchair or scooter, contact info@grizzlyfestival.com no later than one week before the event. Grizzly Fest personnel may ask individuals using another type of power-driven mobility device for a credible assurance, such as a valid Federal or State-issued proof of disability, that the device is required because of a disability.

SECTION 4: TOILETS

Accessible portable toilets are located in every cluster of portable toilets in the festival grounds. See Festival Map for exact locations.

For your 2-day pass, you will only receive ONE ticket (in wristband form) that you will wear each day to grant you access into the festival. Thus, if you choose to sell your 2-day ticket, you must sell both days. This is due to the tickets being in wristband form. It cannot be removed once put on, and any loose wristbands will be confiscated. Any wristbands that have been tampered with will be void and you will not be given access to the festival.
