The Merch Tent is also where you will find reusable drinking vessels for you to purchase so that you can enjoy the free water at the water station.
THE ROCK GARDEN
We are happy to see Big Rock Brewery back again this year with their family of all natural craft beers and Rock Creek Cider. The Daytime Beer Garden is open Saturday and Sunday afternoons from 12:30-4:30 p.m. (last call at 4 p.m.). In the Rock Garden, beer sales begin when the Mainstage opens and service stops at midnight on Friday and Saturday nights, and 11:15 p.m. on Sunday night. If you want to purchase beverages from the Rock Garden area, you must obtain a drinking age verification wristband in advance. Drink tickets are $6 each and are transferable amongst the Mainstage Rock Garden, the Daytime Beer Garden and the RFF After Dark after parties located at the German Club. The Regina Folk Festival advises you — PLEASE DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE.

The Regina Folk Festival is an all-ages event. Admission to the Mainstage area is free for children 12 and under with a children’s wristband. All day-time programming on Saturday and Sunday is free for everyone.
To ensure everyone has a fair amount of room, we ask that tarps or blankets require no more than a 6 x 8 foot space per family. In the low-rider zone, chairs must be low to the ground without high backs so the people be- hind you can see the stage. If we can roll a basketball under your chair, or the back of your chair is higher than an adult’s head, your chair is too big for the low-riding zone.
Although children 12 and under are free, they must wear a wristband inside the Mainstage area. These wristbands can be obtained from the Info Booth and will help to track audi- ence numbers in the Mainstage area and ensure we remain within the legal capacity of the space.
There are additional optional children’s wristbands for children attending either Daytime or Mainstage events. Parents can fill out their contact information and put it on their child. In the event that your child is lost, this lets our security team know whom to contact. Parent Contact Wristbands can be obtained at the Info Booth and/or Children’s Area tents.
Smoking is prohibited in Victoria Park. If you are found smoking on site, Event Patrol will ask you to “butt out” at designated ash cans around the perimeter of the park. Help keep the air fresh for everyone; please do not smoke during the Festival!
In case of an emergency, contact a security person or head to the Info Booth or the First Aid Tent for assis- tance. First Aid is located beside the Festival Volunteer Tent in the daytime, and beside the Event Patrol tent in the Mainstage.
In order to use the porta-potties most efficiently (and thereby decrease waiting time), it is important that everyone works to keep them clean. In addition, please make sure that you have checked that all are in use before standing in line. Please refer to the Festival Site Map for the location of all facilities.
We love Victoria Park and want to keep it GREEN. Please help us by depositing your recyclables in one of the designated bins stationed throughout the park.
WATER AND HANDWASHING STATIONS
The festival is championing an effort to decrease the amount of water bottles that are used on site. We offer artists reusable bottles and encourage festival patrons to bring their own reusable water bottles, or purchase a festival reusable water bottle in the Festival Merch Tent. Fill up at the water stations throughout the weekend. Check it out beside the Food Court or beside the Beer Gardens in the Mainstage Area and get your thirst quenched and your hands cleaned!
In the event of an emergency, please listen to our stage hosts, who will give detailed instructions on how to proceed. In the event of an evacu- ation, please make your way to the Cornwall Centre. To report an emergency, please find an Event Patrol volunteer.
