We’ll be under a roof and in the shade, but it’s advised to bring some water.

We appreciate everyone’s help for loading and unloading at the concert site and back at the school.

If you were at the rehearsal when parking passes were handed out, they get you in free to the luxury spots close to the action. These are ONE PER CAR and absolutely NONTRANSFERABLE. If you don’t have one, show up for loading at CMS and see if you can share a ride, or just pay your three bucks in the regular fair parking area.

To get to the luxury spots, at the fairgrounds take the south entrance off Hwy. 11 and present your pass at the south gate, the one closest to the performing area.
