Please Note: The guidelines, rules and policies listed below will be very subject to change until we get much closer to the event.
General Festival & Ticketing Policies
- All tickets are subject to availability and prices can change with or without notice.
- All sales are final. No refunds or exchanges will be accepted.
- Event is outdoor and will be held rain or shine.
- Refunds will not be issued for temporary evacuations or weather disruptions; all shows and activities are subject to change.

- This event is family friendly. Children under the age of 10 will be admitted for free. All children and ticket holders under 18 years of age MUST be accompanied by a ticket holding parent or legal guardian (21 or older) that will remain onsite as long as they do; otherwise, they will be denied entry to the event or removed from event proceedings. Please no more than three (3) children or ticket holders under 18 per eligible adult supervisor. Be sure to bring proof-of-age, as you may be required to present this when you enter through the gate.
- Anyone that wishes to purchase alcohol or enter certain designated areas serving alcohol will need to bring a Government-issued photo ID and be twenty-one (21) years or older.
- No tickets may be used for advertising, promotion (e.g., as a prize or incentive in contests or sweepstakes) or any other trade purposes without the express written consent of Branch Fest. Any ticket used in such a way will be voided without refund at Branch Fest’s sole discretion.
- Only tickets purchased from Branch Fest directly (e.g., physically at the gate/box office during the festival or at other Branch Fest sponsored events) or through our only authorized online ticket vendor, Eventbrite, will be valid. Branch Fest does not assist in any 3rd-party transactions with respect to the resale of tickets. In order to best protect yourself from purchasing potentially fraudulent tickets, please DO NOT buy tickets from 3rd parties. These tickets may not be legitimate and, if that’s the case, will not be honored by the festival. Both VERVE, which will be used as part of our ambassador program, and Affirm, which offers payment plans through Eventbrite’s payment processing system, are both legitimate and authorized platforms that may also be involved with the online sale of tickets. There may be a legitimate ticket exchange market made available once we get closer to the event.
- Any resale or attempted resale of tickets at a price higher than the current face value listed on Eventbrite (i.e., scalping) is prohibited, and upon discovery, will result any such tickets being voided without refund.
- No unauthorized vending will be allowed on the festival grounds; however, there will be an area set aside for community vending, where people will allowed to sell a few homemade, hand-crafted items with some provided table space – no food, resale or large displays. For more information on food or craft vendor sites, please email email@example.com.
- All vehicles are subject to search upon entry (or, where applicable, re-entry) onto festival grounds.
- Any confiscated prohibited items will NOT be held or returned. Security and management reserves the right to determine if any item not explicitly listed as prohibited poses a significant danger or issue within the festival and may act accordingly.
