Not so fast, bandito.
If you don’t have tickets, fix that before you proceed.
(All tickets must be purchased via Prekindle—even DAY-of purchases!)
Beyond public transportation, shared rides are a great option. If none of those work for you and you’re planning to drive, please keep in mind that areas of Kidd Springs are under construction. Parking remains available near the rec center, and along all adjacent and nearby streets that do not have “No Parking” signs. (Most of these streets are available to park on.)
Want to see the fires lit? Come on out Friday evening at 5:00 p.m. If you purchase a golden wristband, you will not only be eligible for BBQ tasting on Friday, but the Friday beer tent will also be open to you. Cost of beer is included with the purchase of a golden wristband. Friday night features music, as well.
(Please drink responsibly, and do not drink and drive.)
The main event. Doors will open at 11:00 a.m. and so will the bar. Beer will be sold separately on Saturday. BBQ tasting requires a wristband (which must be purchased on Prekindle!).
