Pets are not allowed this year except for service animals. We are so sorry to say that due to strict Health Department regulations and liability issues we are unable to accommodate your dogs (even on-leash) at the event this year. We are all animal- lovers and this is really disappointing for us. If it was possible for us to have them, we would! However, you can still get your "dog-fix" and all the dog-licks you can handle by visiting the many adoptable dogs from rescue organizations that will be available at the festival.  Service animals are allowed.  Please have your documentation with you if you can.

      No more lists. It was a huge hassle compiling the lists of meetup members from all the different meetup groups (which I had to do) and it was a huge hassle for the ticket sellers at the main gate for various reasons.

      And yes, you are remembering from last year.

    Worldfest opens at 10:30 am. Park in the dirt lot across the street BEFORE 10:30 am and its FREE! After 10:30 am, parking in the lot is $5. Or look for street parking a few blocks away. Don't park anywhere in the red! And don't park in the other lot where there is a sign that says "NO WORLDFEST PARKING".
