So about this Beer Garden…

There are two locations – one at the Main Stage on Foreland and one at James St. In order to purchase beer at the outdoor beer areas, you will need to purchase a $5 wristband. (Wristbands are not required to purchase beer at individual venues.) Your wristband purchase helps support the festival, offsetting the costs associated with putting on such a music-tacular event.
