  • Beer Garden
    • What are the beer garden hours?
      We are in the process of applying for our 2017 liquor license and on it we are asking for hours to be increased. We are hoping to have beer service from 2pm till midnight with all beer being consumed or poured out by 12:30 am. We will post up-dates as we receive them.
    • Can I bring a lawn chair to sit on?
      You may bring a lawn or folding chair into the park, 2016 did not allow for any chairs in the licensed area. We are hoping to allow chairs in the beer garden for 2017 and beyond. Once we have our SOL and the terms have been outlined we will be posting all the rules and regulations here.
    • Do you serve hard alcohol?
      One word, NO!
    • Can I smoke in the beer garden?
      Right in the beer garden, NO. There is a smoking area at the back of the beer garden with very convenient access. In the VIP area we will have a small smoking area for 2017.
    • Is there an age limit in the beer garden?
      YES, 19+ in the beer garden and also 19+ in any of the designated smoking areas.
    • Why is there a 2 drink limit?
      The 2 drink limit is determined by the liquor control board of BC. The main reason is to prevent people from over consuming.
  • Camping
    • Where is the campground?
      Camping for CannaFest is located directly across highway 3 and is 1 very short block away from the festival grounds, a very slow walker should take about 3 minutes to get from the campground to the main entrance.
    • Where can I reserve a camp spot?
      Camping is available on the web-site only. We will release a limited number of spots as soon as the dates and line-up for next year is announced. Remember to book your spots early as we are expecting a complete sell-out by Christmas.
    • Can I have a campfire?
      Open fires are prohibited but you can have a propane camp fire.

    • Can I bring my own liquor?
      NO! If anybody is caught with liquor in the event they will be asked to pour it out immediately, all bags and coolers will be subject to inspection at the main gates upon entry.
    • Can I smoke marijuana?
      Even though this event is branded CannaFest marijuana still remains a controlled substance in Canada, as adults you need to use your common sense. There will be a designated smoking area that has been a complete success the last 3 CannaFest's
    • Is there reserved seating?
      There isn't any seating, please bring a folding chair or a blanket or feel free to pull up a piece of nicely manicured grass, it is a baseball park and will be comfortable no matter what you choose to sit on. There are bleachers in the old beer garden area that have an incredible view of the stage and will offer a bit of shade from the direct sun, if you plan on sitting in the beer gardens please arrive early as it will prove to be a very popular area of the festival.
    • Can I bring My Dog?
      Unfortunately because of liability and a number of other reasons pets are prohibited in the park. PLEASE do not leave your pets locked in your vehicles while you are at the festival, leave them at home or if your hotel/motel permits leave them there.

      Yes, this is an all ages event, drinking and smoking will have designated areas for adults to enjoy their habits responsibly.
