Sunglasses, a hat, and sunscreen are generally advisable, as much of the Festival is outdoors. If the forecast calls for some light rain, be prepared for that, too—a little rain never hurt! But we're keeping an eye on things; if bad weather is on the horizon, we will move the Festival indoors. You'll be able to enjoy 6 stages of music, community tables and our craft show inside the halls of Takoma Park Middle School!


A First Aid tent is available on site. The exact location is noted on the Festival site map.



Two sets of restrooms inside the school are accessible. A port-a-john near Performer Hospitality is accessible and can be reached without using stairs.



Although we love animals, too, please leave pets at home on the day of the Festival because of the hazards of possible bites, fights and droppings. Only service animals are allowed on the Festival grounds.


While the Festival celebrates diverse voices and the strengths of our local community, it is first and foremost a music festival. Any activity that interferes with attendees’ ability to enjoy the music and other official festival activities is not permitted. Groups wishing to promote a point of view should purchase a Community Table and adhere to the guidelines of Community Tables.
