What can I bring?

Our festival is the opportunity for the local community to gather for a picnic in a relaxed atmosphere and we don’t put restrictions on what you may bring, as long as it is not dangerous for other visitors. Feel free to bring your dogs, BBQ and sports equipment and something to sit on. We also provide excellent food and drinks on site. Most importantly bring good mood!
