As part of our commitment to environmental sustainability, all food vendors will be practicing a “Nearly Zero Waste” philosophy. They’ll be using eco-friendly products that are recyclable, compostable, or biodegradable. Food scraps will be composted, and refillable Project North cups will be available for purchase.


Beer and wine will be dispensed at the music venues by festival organizers and mixed drinks will be available at downtown establishments.
