Does the Freedom Festival permit carrying in food or beverages for special diets or infant/toddler needs?
Absolutely! The Freedom Festival supports our loyal food vendors, but we understand that infants and toddlers have their own special formula needs or eating preferences. We are also very mindful that a number of Festival patrons have various medical conditions that dictate particular dietary items and schedules. As you enter a particular venue, if Staff or Volunteers ask you about your carry-in food items, please indicate that they are special medical dietary items. There is no need to reveal the nature of the medical condition. NO GLASS and SOFT SIDED COOLERS ONLY!
What about coolers on the 3rd Avenue Bridge / 1st Street SW?
Coolers will be allowed to be carried into the venue as long as they do not contain glass and they are SOFT SIDED COOLERS ONLY! – for security and safety purposes. All bags will be checked for compliance.
