In an effort to go green, this year we will use re-useable mugs for the fest. This saves us from using more than 10,000 cups we would usually throw into landfills and will provide a nice souvenir for our many guests. Your entry wristband and $2 buys you a mug at the front gate and can be used all day. Note: If you lose a mug, you can buy another for $2. There will be no plastic used unless we run out of mugs.

V.I.P. parking is available this year in the South Lot for $5. Spaces close to the building are limited and will be on a first come-first served basis. Free spaces in the North Lot are free for IAHC members, seniors and attendees with special needs. We will also continue to run free shuttle buses to our remote parking lot on Wilson and Lamon from 2pm to midnight.

Tickets are $15 for adults, or $12 for advance purchase if bought by the end of the day on March 14. Children 12 and under are free.
