Is there parking?

  • No parking is available on site, unless you are on the VIP list (you would know). Shefford Road is closed, and space is limited. We suggest taking the bus to Gloucester Center and taking our FREE Shuttle to drop you right on our doorstep! Plenty of Bike parking is available on site.

Is the event wheelchair accessible?

  • We have worked hard to ensure that each and every guest is able to attend our event! People with disabilities are welcome at our event. From accessible washrooms, to wider gates and entrances, as well as a paved ramp from the parking lot to our gate, we hope this fits the bill.
    Due to the natural landscape and uneven terrain, parts of the event grounds may be more difficult than other to navigate and maneuver. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with specific questions!
