FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Special needs parking will be available at the highschool parking lot for the entire weekend.

If you live in town, please consider walking or biking to Four Seasons Park.

Parking is available at the Aquafit Centre parking lot. It takes approximately 10-20 minutes to walk into the Festival site from this location, and the links above lead to Google maps for planning the walk. **Please note earlier in the evening on Friday the Blues Run is using the Aquafit parking lot!

Please reserve the parking at Ecole Secondaire Beaumont Composite High School, 5417 43 Avenue, for those who are limited in mobility and not physically able to do the walk from the Aquafit.

The Main Entrance is located just off the fork of the walking paths in Four Season Park. It is the first entrance you will see if walking from the High School parking lot.

The Main Entrance is for ticket holders and to purchase your tickets. There will have a kiosk for you to buy right at the Main Gate. Please note that tickets bought at the gate are $125 and $65 respectively.

As we move around the fence and walking path towards the Spray Park, we will find the Musician’s Entrance and backstage area. No, you can’t enter there….unless you are a member of the band! Each band provides us with a list of who they are expecting and we prepare in advance for them.

Camping

There is RV camping in Beaumont at the Lions RV park, and there is paved walking paths right to the BBRF site! It is about a 10 minute walk. It is located at Gerry Patsula Park (50 St & south of 43 Ave,) is open all year and does not require bookings. It is $20 per night and includes picnic tables, gazebo, fire pit, barbeques, horse shoe pits, port-a-potties. Please note there are no hookups.

I am getting questions about tenting at the Lions RV Park. I would say the answer is “no” to tenting, as the RV Park is on the edge of Four Seasons Park, which is designated as a “day use” area. I did a quick Google search for camping areas around town, click for the results. Please note that the Google search is not an endorsement from the BBRF in regards to any of these camping sites.

We have two levels of Security on site:

Our Volunteer Security team are all trained in the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission (AGLC) ProTect program and they are there to help everyone stay safe while having a wonderful time at our Festival. You can identify them by the bright yellow or black t-shirts with “Security” marked on the back.

We also employ professional security that our volunteers are trained to contact them if there is fun getting out of hand. Our professional security will be checking bags as you enter the Festival grounds. They will determine if law enforcement needs to be called into a situation if the need arises.

First Aid will be available at the Volunteer Tent near the Main Gate. We will have a kit on hand. Some volunteers and professional security staff will be on site who are trained in First Aid. Need help and cannot get to the tent yourself? Please tell one of our volunteers or uniformed professional security staff, they will be able to assist!
