BASS COAST ACCESSIBILITY INFORMATION


ACCESSIBLE CAMPING
Available for those with limited mobility and accessibility needs. Accessible camping is on the festival side of the river near the Cantina Stage.


PERSONAL ASSISTANT / SUPPORT COMPANION

This form will collect personal assistant / support companion information.


SERVICE AND GUIDE DOGS
Guide and service dogs certified by the BC Registrar's office are welcome on site and must be registered in advance. They should have legally required up to date vaccinations. Documentation may be requested.

Companion, emotional support, or therapy animals are not permitted.

Only certified guide and service dogs that are under proper care of their owners will be granted accreditation. The service animal must remain leashed or harnessed by their handler's side at all times. If a harness or leash impede the service animal’s work, the owner must be able to control the service animal through other methods.

We recommend appropriate animal protective gear (e.g., ear, foot, and/or eye protection) to be worn during the event, as long as it does not impede the guide or service dog's work. High decibel levels near or at stages may cause permanent hearing damage to the animal.

Please be mindful of animal waste and dispose of it in refuse areas.

Individuals with a guide or service dog are responsible for and liable for any injury or damage caused by the animal.

Limited pre-approved spots are available for guests to reserve. Make, model, and length of vehicle with trailer/RV will be collected within this form.
