Frequently Asked Questions

  • May I bring a chair?
    Guests are discouraged from bringing chairs, though exceptions are made for attendees with disabilities.
  • Are dogs allowed?
    Unfortunately, dogs are not permitted on the AstroTurf soccer field (though they are always welcome at SPARK, the paved food truck park).
