1.   What is included in my Festival Ticket?

Your Festival ticket includes parking, the park admission fee, and access to all of the entertainment and activities throughout the Festival grounds.

2.   Can I buy my ticket(s) online? At the Gate?

Yes, you can purchase tickets in advance online from the SASSF home page.  Please remember to bring a print-out of your ticket receipt, or have it accessible on your phone
Tickets are available at the Front Gate on the day of the Festival, however adult tickets at the Gate are $20 – so buy in advance and save $5 per ticket.   Children’s tickets for ages 6-14 are $3, whether purchased online or at the Gate.   Children under six enter free.

3.   Where can I park?  Is there a parking fee?

There is parking in an open lot just across from the Festival/ Heritage Park entrance.    Parking is free.

4.   Do you have handicap parking?

Yes, we have handicap parking within the Park.   See the Festival Map for locations.   Please be cautious when driving into the Park, as Festival attendees may be crossing the perimeter roadway.

5.   Can I bring my dog?  

We regret that we cannot allow dogs in the Park during the Festival.  One of our most popular entertainments are the sheepdog herding demonstrations by Craigmalloch Farms.   We cannot allow other dogs in the Park, as they may distract or disturb the working border collies.

6.   Where is the Information Canopy?

The Information Canopy is to the left and just beyond the Park entrance and Festival Front Gate at the edge of the main Festival Grounds.   Please see the Festival Map for the exact location. 

7.   Where is the Pipe & Drum Competition Registration/Check-in?

The Pipe & Drum Competition Registration/Check-in is located on the round-about circle, facing towards the main Festival Grounds.   Please see the Festival Map for the exact location. 

8.   Where are the toilets and baby-changing stations?
The Park has two permanent restrooms with baby-changing stations located along the entrance round-about, just past the Front Gate; the second restroom is between the Main Stage and Children’s Games area.   There are portable toilets stationed near both Beer Trucks and along the walkway by the food vendors.   

9.   Where can I find an ATM?

ATMs are located along the walkway by the food vendors.

10.   Where is a First Aid Station?

The First Aid Stations is located next to the Heavy Athletics area.

11.  Do you have seating?  Can I bring my own chair(s)?

Yes, seating is provided in various locations, but you are welcome to bring your own chairs.   The Main Stage has covered seating within the large stage canopy and the Heritage Stage has shaded seating.  The large canopy facing the Main Field has limited seating, but many attendees bring their own lawn chairs and station themselves around the periphery of the field.

Tables and chairs are provided within the Food Canopy and there are park picnic tables & benches scattered throughout the grounds. 

SASSF members and Sponsors have a designated seating area within the Membership Enclosure by the MC Pavilion.  It pays to become a SASSF member, so join today!

12.  Are there any charges for activities within the Festival?

All activities within the Festival are included with your Festival ticket, except for Highland Archery, new to the Festival this year.   The Archery Games (adults and children ages 8+ accompanied by an adult)  charge $5 to shoot 6 arrows at various targets or 3 bolts shot from a ballista (Medieval siege weapon).  

13.  Where can I get Festival souvenirs and programs?

Festival souvenirs and programs can be purchased in the Membership Enclosure located next to the MC Pavilion on the Main Field.   In addition, Festival Programs will be sold by volunteers walking throughout the grounds and at the Information Canopy at the entrance.
