Q. What happens if it rains?
A. You’ll will have a great time. It’s a rain or shine event! Our stage is covered, we have tents for vendors, and there is a big covered picnic area. We keep the music, family, food, and fun happening no matter what!
Q. What’s the story with parking?
A. There is an additional parking fee per vehicle of $13 to get into the Provincial Park. Come early and spend the morning on the beach to make the most of your day!
Q. Is there camping?
A. Yes! We think that giving you the ability to camp at a real Provincial Park is what makes our music festival completely unique. Campsites do fill up every year so it's best to book early right here!
Q. Are children allowed?
A. Yes! This is an all-ages event, and children under 12 are free. We provide free kids programming all day long in the Kids Zone Tent! Our friends Costume Creations by Small Pond Arts host the kids area. Kids love dressing up, and they love making stuff! At Costume Creations, they can experience the best of both worlds, as our team turns ordinary kids into superheroes and fanciful characters by helping them make their own unique costumes. A family favourite at Sandbanks Music Festival since 2014!
Q. Are dogs allowed?
A. Yes. If you do stays on leash, they are allowed in the event area.
Q. Will I need cash?
A. Yes, but we may be able to do cash back at our front gate if needed. Best to bring plenty of cash with you.
Q. Can I bring my own drinks?
A. You can’t bring in alcoholic drinks. We have beer/wine/cider/spirits vendors onsite and they are great supporters of what we do, so thanks for supporting them by enjoying responsibly. Also, we have a water tap on site, so you can bring a non-glass water bottle.
Q. Will you have non-beer options?
A. Yes! We have fresh-pressed lemonade from Lemonade Dave plus all our many food vendors will have a variety of pop drinks and such for sale as well.
Q. Can my band perform/can I be a vendor?
A. We are currently booked up for both bands and vendors but you can always feel free to get in touch with ideas for next year.
Q. What else should I bring?
A. We mentioned cash, right? And a water bottle (not made of glass)? Otherwise, check the weather and bring gear accordingly. Our event is always rain or shine! Definitely bring lots of sunscreen, nice friends, your smartphone to post pics using our hashtag #sandbanksmusic, and maybe a lawn chair or picnic blanket.
Q. What else should I do?
A. Buy your advance tickets right here and save $5 on every one!
