Are pets permitted?

  • Sorry, no
    As this event involves amplified music, dancing and children within a constrained fenced-in area, no animals will be admitted to the Festival premises with the exception of properly designated and restrained service animals and restrained prescribed companion animals accompanying participants with disabilities.
    All service and companion animals must be checked in through the main entrance to the Festival with proof of service status or proof of prescribed companion status. Each admitted animal’s human companion will be asked to wear a stick-on credential signaling the animal’s status to Festival staff and attendees. All admitted animals must stay with their designated human at all times while within the Festival premises.
    All service and companion animals must be restrained/leashed and controlled by their designated human companions while within the fenced-in Festival premises. Free-roaming, uncontrolled and/or aggressive animals and their humans will be asked to leave the Festival premises.
    For sanitary and safety purposes, animals must not be permitted to relieve themselves within the fenced-in Festival premises. There is plenty of space elsewhere with the Hartwood Acres complex for animals to do their business, including the nearby dog park located behind the Festival stage.
    If you have any questions about the Festival’s animal policy, please email us at info@musicforms.org
