To use cash, please visit the Cash Exchange tent to load up a gift card. No outside food or beverages may be brought into any of the events.

For those who drive to the event, parking is available in nearby garages or on the adjacent streets where there are parking meters.

For those arriving by bicycle, enjoy a complimentary bike valet from Bike Easy. Drop off your bike and they'll watch it while you enjoy the event.

Are pets allowed?

Pets are allowed in the square during the concerts, provided they are on a leash no longer than six feet at all times. If they display aggressive behavior the owner may be asked to remove them.
