ADA Accessibility

During the 2017 festival, both a mobi mat and beach wheelchairs will be available and in place.

The mobi mat is a special mat that will allow those who are in wheelchairs to wheel themselves out to the sculpture garden inside the festival perimeter. Beach wheelchairs will be available for those who can transfer themselves from a wheelchair.  Access to both the mobi mat and beach wheelchairs can be found by entering the public beach lot from Beach Rd. and navigating to the Drop Off Zone in front of the esplanade.  Please note that easiest access to the sculpture garden on the mat will still be Monday, November 13th, since the other days of the festival will be extremely crowded.

BEACH WHEELCHAIRS:  Available just west of the main esplanade at the drop off zone in the main beach parking lot.  Sign out for a wheelchair is available at the tiki kiosk next to the wheelchairs.

WHEELCHAIR MOBI-MAT: Accessible during all days of the festival and located right in front of the beach wheelchairs.  Using the esplanade, follow to the sidewalk to enter the beach area by the gazebo where the walking mat will be located.  Follow the mat out to the vendor area and through the admissions VIP entrance area where your fee for the day will be collected. 

ADMISSION AT THE GATE:  $10 for adults; $5 for children 5 - 17; $8 for seniors and military personnel.  ID required.

Navigating beyond the admissions tent, you will be able to get out to the sculpture garden to view the sculptures when using only the wheelchair mat.  Please note that the wheelchair mat allows viewing access of the sculptures from a distance and does not encompass the entire festival.
