Bag Policy

In an effort to keep you safe, the following bag policy is currently in effect:

See Something, Say Something

"If You See Something, Say Something©" is a national anti-terrorism campaign that raises public awareness of the indicators of terrorism and terrorism-related crime, as well as the importance of reporting suspicious activity to state and local law enforcement.

Text AID for Help

If you have a security issue, you can now text (message and data charges may apply) "AID" to our short code (27665). The system will prompt you for your location and general nature of the problem. If you reply with this info, an alert will show up in the chat window at the box office. The people in the box office will then alert security to the issues and make sure they are dealt with.

*Those receiving a ticket transfer must have a Ticketmaster My Account. If they do not have an account, they can easily create one when they accept the tickets.

Lawn Seating

The lawn seating is a general admission area behind the reserved pavilion seats. It is not covered and therefore, is exposed to the elements. In the event of inclement weather, we recommend quality rain gear. Umbrellas are allowed but may not be open during the performances. Smoking is prohibited except in one section to the far right of the lawn. If you have trouble walking up inclined surfaces, lawn seating may not be the best option for you. If lawn seating is your only option, please see our staff for assistance.

Renting a lawn chair is easier than ever! Pay $10 per chair and head straight to the lawn to pick them up. At the end of the night, leave the chair where it is and we'll take care of the rest! It's quick, easy and efficient. To reserve a lawn chair, click here:
T-Mobile Customers: Show us you are a T-Mobile customer and receive a Free lawn chair rental!

If you wish to bring your own lawn chair, please be aware that they MUST adhere to the size limitation policy and you will have a thorough search at a specific location that will make entry in the venue slower. Please do not bring the chair or blanket in a carrying bag as that will violate our "No Bags" policy.
Lawn Chair Policy

Cameras and Recording Devices

Although these policies vary from performer to performer, the typical policy is as such:
In most cases, video recording, audio recording and flash photography are strictly prohibited. For the enjoyment of other guests, larger electronic devices like iPads, tablets or Kindles are not allowed as well as selfie sticks and Go Pro devices. Small, personal cameras, without zoom lenses or detachable lenses, including digital cameras, cell phones and disposable cameras are typically allowed. Please check with the box office regarding a particular performance. In either case, pictures may only be taken from your seat. You will not be permitted to approach the stage to take pictures. Please never use flash photography as it may distract the performers.


Please plan ahead and allow for plenty of extra time in the event of heavy traffic so that you do not miss any of the earlier performances. We open the parking lots hours early to accommodate all those that want to arrive early.


We provide ample parking for the events right on the property. A parking pass is required of every vehicle looking to enter the property for the events. There are several different kinds of parking passes including even overnight tent site parking passes. For more information on the different parking passes or to purchase one, please go here. Our parking areas typically open 3 to 4 hours before the show starts. Please review the times on our website as they can change and the time on your tickets and/or passes may no longer be accurate.

Drop-Offs & Pick-Ups

Please arrive before the rush on both ends of a pick-up and drop-off and do so at the Main Entrance off of Route 11B in Gilford -- 72 Meadowbrook Ln.


We have several parking areas and we condone and even, promote, responsible tailgating. Tailgating can be a very big part of making the event fun and memorable for you. That being said, the possession or consumption of alcoholic beverages, in our parking areas, actually violates a local Gilford ordinance. Underage drinking and/or intoxication, will most certainly cause you to miss the show and may lead to being arrested.


All performances will go on rain or shine. In the event of a weather emergency, like a hurricane, events will most likely be rescheduled. In the event of inclement weather, please use quality rain gear. Umbrellas are allowed but may not be open during performances.


Umbrellas are allowed inside the venue and we allow certain size lawn chairs and blankets in the lawn area. We ask that you are courteous and keep your umbrella closed during the performance to not obstruct anyone's view. We recommend wearing ponchos or other rain gear. The show will go on rain or shine.


There are absolutely no weapons of any kind permitted into the venue including small pocket knives. There will be bag searches and pat downs. Any weapons discovered on an individual attempting to enter the venue will be confiscated and we will not be able to return that item to you at any time.


There are no pets allowed anywhere on the property. Please contact the box office in advance to coordinate the use of any kind of service animal.

No Re-entry

Once you enter the pavilion, you will not be permitted to leave the venue and re-enter again so please be sure to bring everything you need with you the first time. Be sure to have your photo ID with you as everyone is carded for alcohol service.


The doors or gates to our midway typically open between 90 and 120 minutes prior to the main stage performances starting. We usually have a lot going on include excellent regional acts playing on the Hazy Little Side Stage so please come in early, enjoy everything we have to offer and assure your party not missing any of the show all at the same time.
