Frequently Asked Questions

Can I get tickets the day of the event?

Yes! Tickets will be available on the day of the event.

Can I bring my children and is this a family event?

Yes!  AND we have a fantastic Kids Area!  We strive to make the Petaluma Music Festival an event that is appropriate for the whole family! Each child 12 and under is admitted free when accompanied by an adult with a ticket.  Strollers are permitted.

Where can I sit during the Festival?

Just about anywhere! Low-profile lawn chairs and blankets are encouraged, and there is ample space for everyone on the large lawn areas in front of the Festival Stage and the Lagunitas Stage. VIP ticket holders will have shaded reserved seats under a canopied area located on the lawn of the Festival Stage.

No, but there will be a variety of food and drink vendors available including the fine beers of the Lagunitas Brewing Company, award-winning wines, and free drinking water.
