Bayfront Blues Festival, What You Can And Can’t Bring

KOOL 101.7 is proud to be your Bayfront Blues Festival radio station for the 28th annual event and we get many questions what is allowable to bring to the Blues Festival at Bayfront Park. Here’s a list of things allowed in the park.

Some of this list is on the Bayfront Blues website, some from people who have been there year after year.

  • You might want to bring a rain poncho or umbrella, I think it has rained at least one day or half day every year.
  •  You are allowed a camping chair, or stroller. (One chair per person), they are discouraging a chaise lounge, tanning chair and no beach blankets.
  • People have been bringing games to pass the time in between acts. Bayfront is recommending some headphones or a book, games are not allowed.
  • You can bring a bag or purse, but you must submit to a search before you get in. Obviously no weapons. You can not bring in your own drinks or food, there is plenty of places to get both, and they are very good.
  • Keep in mind if you bring a bag or purse the Bayfront Bluesfest is not responsible for lost items and with a chance of rain one of those days, leave valuables like pictures at home.
  • You can bring sunglasses and binoculars to see better, but you can not bring anything to make your own home movies or recordings. Besides you are there to see the music and be a part of the Blues celebration.
  •  A good idea is to bring a jacket, sunscreen, lip balm, extra socks just in case things get wet. Dress appropriately, for hot weather, but be prepared for it to turn at a moments notice when the wind comes off the lake.
  • No pets unless they are service pets.
