For: The Regina Folk Festival Main Stage. The RFF will be handing out vouchers each morning that allow folks the freedom to choose their own festival adventure during the day by ditching the line and still being guaranteed their favourite place to sit in Main Stage!
Date: All three days of the festival (Aug 9, 10 and 11!)
How: Grab a voucher in the morning then come back before Main Stage opens. Like boarding airplanes, the vouchers will be divided into groupings and enter accordingly.
9am - snag a voucher *a limited amount, first come first serve
4:45pm - anyone who requires accessible seating or who needs a little extra time getting into Main Stage will be let in before the rush
5pm - those lucky folks with vouchers get into Main Stage first followed by regular entry
Place: Look for a “Jump the Line!” sign on the south side of the Cenotaph (south of Info Booth and Box Office)
Why: Because you’re awesome! Many of you let us know that the festival queue to get into Main Stage has become problematic. Through survey suggestions and community consultation, we came up with the Jump the Line plan.
The Fine Print: One voucher per person. Each person is allowed 2 chairs and one picnic blanket or tarp upon entrance into the Main Stage (size limit for tarps and blankets is 6 foot by 8 foot), and only the person with the voucher can Jump the Line. If multiple people from one group want to Jump the Line, then each person needs a voucher. Vouchers are non-transferable between days. After the daily vouchers have been handed out, the line-up will start as normal. If you do not have a voucher and you leave your items in line, it's possible a bear will come maul your stuff! We do not take responsibility for any unattended items.
