The Festival of the Lakes follows ADA guidelines regarding accessible seating. Guests requiring special seating accommodations should notify a Festival of the Lakes agent when checking in at our gate.

Accessible Viewing Platform

Visit the Guest Services Information Booth for information on our wristband program. If you have mobility impairments you can request a special wristband at the Guest Services Information Booth. This wristband is to show our team that you (plus one companion) are eligible to enter the ADA Accessible Viewing platform.

The wristband does not guarantee a spot in this area. The ADA Accessible Viewing Platform area has a limited capacity and is available on a first-come, first-served basis. The wristband is non-transferable.


Designated accessible parking for persons with disabilities is available in the Festival of the Lakes parking lots. A valid, appropriate disability placard or license plate is required to park in a space identified as reserved for persons with disabilities. The person that the registration of the accessible parking hang-tag or license belongs to, must be in the vehicle, and identification is required. All park entrances can access our parking lots.


ADA accessible restrooms are available. ADA accessible restrooms for VIP, VIP Experience, and Sponsor Pass holders are available behind the Pavilion stage.

Service Animals

Service animals are permitted and admitted into the Festival of the Lakes. Each service animal must remain with its owner and be restrained. If any service animals interfere with other guests, corrective action may include rearranging seating or removal of the service animal from the Festival of the Lakes.
