General Festival Info

  • YES – our event is free!
  • All ages are welcome in our stage areas, but you must have ID to purchase craft beer & wine.
  • No outside alcohol is permitted.  County law.
  • Free shuttle service is available 12 – 10pm with the last pick up at 9:30pm. 600+ spaces are available at the District and Circuit Courthouses plus the George Howard parking lots.  The shuttle makes in-town stops at the corner of Church & Main St and Ellicott Mills Dr & Main.
  • Pets.  Due to crowds and noise, it’s best to leave your four-footed friend at home.  Clipper’s Canine Cafe (located off Lot D) will have a watering station along with several of the shops on Main St.
  • Proceeds from the event benefit The Ellicott City Partnership that aides our entire community.
