Accessibility

Accessible Parking

Accessible parking is available but in a new location:
Please approach  Westwater drive via Railway Ave.
Show the traffic control officers your Accessible Parking Permit and they will direct you.

Wheelchairs & mobility devices

The surfaces of the festival vary from boardwalk to gravel, concrete and asphalt. Some activities are on grass as well. There are no stairs or steps involved with the exception of the Chinese Bunkhouse which is only accessible via a flight of stairs.

While most of Britannia Shipyards is accessible, some heritage buildings have doors that may be too narrow for some wider wheelchairs.

Due to the tides the ramps are very steep during the day.
Unfortunately wheelchair access is only recommended after 3:30pm due to safety concerns.

Before 3:30pm, wheelchairs can access both the Seine Net Loft in Zone 5 and the Shipyard Building in Zone 11 as well as the deck behind both.
