FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
What is the cost of admission to the Festival?
Admission is free!
Is the Festival cancelled if it rains?
Absolutely NOT. Due to ample tent cover, our Festival is conducted rain or shine. In fact, rain invites a more relaxed, less crowded atmosphere that some people actually prefer! Some rides may be closed during downfalls.
What is the deal with parking?
Curbside street parking throughout the area near the Festival is readily available and free. During peak times, curbside parking is harder to find. We encourage you to use our Free parking lot at Sacred Heart Academy located on the north and south side of Hempstead Turnpike and Cathedral Avenue, where parking is easily and always available. The parking lot is conveniently located within a 10 minutes walk from the Festival grounds. Free shuttle service from the parking lots are also available as follows (approximately every 15 minutes):
Friday, June 2, 2017 6:00pm – 11:30pm
Saturday, June 3, 2017 5:00pm – 11:30pm
Sunday, June 4, 2017 4:00pm – 9:30pm
Not available on Thursday.
Please note that there is also limited parking available at Congregation Beth Israel 141 Hilton Avenue,
Hempstead, NY 11550 that is within 100 feet of our Festival entrance. There is no shuttle bus service to that parking lot due to its proximity.
Please see our Map and Direction page for directions to the parking lot. Please also follow the signs.
Do you accept credit cards and is there an ATM available?
Our venues and vendors accept credit cards. There is an onsite ATM machine. See the posted signs.
Where do I go for lost and found?
Please proceed to the Information booth for assistance located between the Pastry and Café Plaka (Wine and Appetizer) tents. If your child is lost, announcements will be made. Please proceed to the Information booth immediately where our security team will help.
Are unused ride tickets refundable?
