Limited Attendance

Festival attendance will be limited this year and tickets will be required to enter the event. You'll be able to sign-up for a free ticket in advance to secure your spot. We do not anticipate being able to accommodate walk-up patrons this year.

Entrance Points

There will be designated entry points into the park to allow us to monitor capacity and check tickets.


Masks will be required to attend the festival, and WOS will provide a free mask for attendees who may need or want one.

Stage Capacity

Additional stages will be added and there will be a maximum occupancy at each stage to avoid overcrowding and allow for social distancing. Attendees are encouraged to bring your own chairs or blankets. All of our stages in 2021 will be outside, with tarp-covered shade areas for attendees rather than enclosed tents.

Hand Sanitizing

Multiple hand washing stations will be available and hand sanitizer will be available at each stage location.

Virtual Livestreaming

Two or three select events will be available via livestream so that you can enjoy the festival no matter your comfort level.

VIP Precautions

Precautions will be enforced in the VIP area to account for increased personal distance and sanitation.

Kids’ Fest

- We’re folding our kids activities this year into the larger Club Downunder Stage, as well as a new interactive Storybook Village. See more details here.
