Festival FAQ

Are masks mandatory?

Yes, masks will be enforced!

Guests are permitted to temporarily remove their face coverings while consuming food or drink.

Masking will be mandatory in all vendor and bar line-ups, so eating and drinking is not premitted when standing in line.

Will there be tickets at the door?

The festival is sold out!

Unforunately, there will be no tickets avaible at the gate.

Will there be brewery tours?

We will not be hosting brewery tours due to COVID-19.

Are children allowed?

Yes! This is an all-ages event, and children under 12 are free. We’ll have lots of games on site for both kids and adults to enjoy.

There is also dessert truck!

Are pets allowed?

Your furry friends will have to sit this one out! Festival day is very busy and hot.

Will I need cash?

Cash is encouraged, but there will be debit and credit available at most stations.

Can I bring my own drinks?

You can’t bring booze. Don't worry, we’ll have lots!

We will have a water truck on site with single-use disposable cups. Anything else is fine, as long as it’s sealed when you get here.

Can my band perform/can I be a vendor?

We’re booked right up for music and generally take care of finding acts on our own. Interested food vendors can get in touch by emailing natasha@mackinnonbrewing.com

Is there a restriction on bag size?

Any reasonable backpack that does not contain anything stupid is allowed.

What else should I bring?

We mentioned cash, right? And a water bottle (not made of glass)? Otherwise, check the weather and bring gear accordingly. We’re doing this rain or shine! Definitely bring lots of sun screen, nice friends, good ideas, and maybe a lawn chair or picnic blanket. But lawn chairs aren’t allowed near the stage.

No one can party hard while sitting down.

What else should I NOT bring?

We already told you about alcohol, pets, and glassware, but you also can’t bring bad attitudes, weapons, uncomfortable shoes, and bad drunks. Bicycles or skateboards or any other type of non-foot transportation is both impractical and not allowed on the festival grounds.

Where can I go for day-of updates?

Follow our Festival Facebook Page for all up-to-the-moment information, or follow the brewery's Instagram story if that's more your vibe.

Shuttle buses, eh? Tell us more.

Shuttle buses are included in the ticket price! Buses leave from two pickup/drop-off points in Kingston (Red House West & Memorial Centre) and one in Napanee (The Waterfront River Pub)starting at 10:30 and will be shuttling allll day.

We have 13 shuttles in total, so there will be one avaible at least every hour. We can't give EXACT times as it is very unpredictable with unloading, loading, guest count and sanitization.

Plan to catch a shuttle well in advance if you are heading out for a certain musical set!

 

What if it rains?

You’ll get wet. It’s a rain or shine event!

What’s the story with parking?

It’s free, it’s plentiful, and it’s right on site! You can park overnight if you need to, though we prefer that you plan ahead and take a shuttle bus or travel with a designated driver.

We have a really big field for parking, so don’t park on the side of the road. We aren’t responsible for any damage or theft to vehicles in our parking lot, so keep valuables out of sight.

Is there camping?

We do not host any overnight guests. Sorry!

What if I don't drink beer?

We will have cider (the boozy kind) cocktails, and wine from some of our good friends in Prince Edward County. Our food vendors will have a variety of soda, kombucha and other fun drinks for sale as well.

Can I leave and then return to the festival?

Yes! As long as you have your festival bracelet, re-entry will not be an issue.

Should I print off my ticket?

You can print your tickets or display them on your phone at the gate!
