Accessibility Information

It’s important to us that all music lovers have access to the WE Fest experience! Our friendly ADA access team will make sure everyone is having a fantastic weekend. For more details please read the information below. If you have any additional questions about accessibility, by all means contact us. We will do our best to provide these services and are also eager to hear your suggestions and feedback.

What to Buy

Accessibility Access:  Reserved ADA seats are sold out. General Admission tickets are still available. 

Accessible Parking: ADA Parking is currently sold out. We encourage parking in the ADA area in the Day Parking Lot and take the shuttle, if you are able. Another option is to have someone drop you off at the Lake Sallie drop off area. From there you can take an ADA cart shuttle to the venue.  

ADA Parking is located on the east side of the venue, near the East Entrance. To park in this area, you must have purchased an Accessible Parking pass. Spaces are not reserved, they are first come first served. Please be prepared to present your state issued disabled license plate, hang tag or placard, to festival staff upon your arrival.

Accessible Camping: ADA Campsite is sold out. Standard campsites are available in the Eagle Campground.

Festival Grounds

  • The event is held on a large ranch. There are various types of terrain throughout the venue which includes grass, hard packed dirt, and gravel roadways.
  • Plan accordingly as there are some distances to be covered to get to all of the areas and stages on the site, and as with any natural terrain, rain can impact the conditions.
  • Weather in August is typically hot! Weather can change at any time. Please pack accordingly.

ADA Access Tent

There will be an ADA Access tent located on the west side in the concert bowl.  This is where ADA patrons can get information and request services. The ADA access team can also be contacted through the festival information booth or by calling 218-850-1095.

ADA Accessible Viewing Area

There will be an accessible viewing area within the venue for guests, who use wheelchairs, have significant mobility disabilities, or who have difficulty standing for long periods of time. The Accessible Viewing Area is located at the back of the reserved lawn seating area. Staff will manage the viewing area accordingly to make sure all patrons are comfortable.

Golf Carts

Golf carts will be available to transport patrons with mobility impairments to and from camping and the concert bowl. Rules, guidelines, and schedules for golf cart transportation is available from the ADA access team. Also, a golf cart taxi service is available for all patrons for a fee.

Powered Mobility Devices

Guests with mobility disabilities are welcome to use motorized wheelchairs and three or four wheeled scooters. For safety reasons, guests may NOT use golf carts, all-terrain vehicles, two wheeled scooters or motorbikes, either in the venue itself, or in the parking and camping areas.

SERVICE ANIMALS – Definition, Policies, and Procedures

WE Fest welcomes and supports the rights and attendance of all persons with disabilities that rely on the special skills of a trained service animal. What we DO NOT support, nor will tolerate, are pets being misrepresented by their owners as service animals, when in fact they are not. So please, don’t do it. Leave your pet at home. We mean it.

Service Animal Definition: A ‘service animal’ means “any dog that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability. The work or tasks performed by a service animal must be directly related to the handler’s disability.”Emotional support or comfort animals are not considered service animals under the ADA and therefore are not allowed at WE Fest.

Service Animal Policies:

For our patrons with disabilities who wish to bring their legitimate service animal to WE Fest, we ask that you review and follow the policies outlined below:

  1. Service animals must be accompanied by the handler with the disability at all times.
  2. Service animals must be under the control and supervision of their handler at all times.
  3. Service animals are not permitted to be left in camp unattended under any circumstances.
  4. Handlers are required to be prepared for, and clean-up after, their animals at all times.
  5. We reserve the right to remove and/or refuse access to any service animal from the campgrounds or venues if that animal is deemed to be a health or safety threat to festival patrons, staff, or other service animals, or in violation of these policies.
  6. All service animals must be credentialed by the WE Fest staff (see the procedures below).

Service Animal Procedures:

All patrons with a service animal will need to have that animal credentialed by WE Fest staff before entering the main gate. This process will be performed quickly and respectfully by our ADA Access Team. What will you need to do? It’s easy. At the entrance gate let staff know you need your service animal credentialed. Staff will speak with you, record your contact information, and provide a collar tag for your service animal. Then you are good to go! Security/Staff will be on the lookout this year for all animals to have a properly credentialed WE Fest collar tag.

Remember, Service Animals are allowed, all other dogs are NOT!
