OFFICIAL AUDACY BEACH FESTIVAL ADA GUIDE
Audacy has partnered with Ten Fifty Entertainment, the leading provider of Accessibility and Guest Services programs throughout the nation.
Audacy Beach Festival is a fully accessible event, and we are dedicated to continually improving our efforts to ensure you have access to all the event amenities. We welcome and encourage all feedback and suggestions from our patrons. The following explains the services provided this year. For any accessibility-related questions please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will do our best to assist you and address your accessibility needs.
The paved venue boardwalk is fully navigable for people with mobility disabilities. While the event is held on a sandy beach, there will be accessible beach decking pathways connected throughout the venue including the beach, entrances/exits, stages, viewing areas, restrooms, vendors, and other activities. We encourage all guests with mobility disabilities to utilize personal forms of transportation, including wheelchairs and scooters. If you need to recharge your motorized wheelchair, you may do so at the Accessibility Services kiosk. Patrons should bring all cords and accessories needed to charge their devices. Chargers must use a 110-volt, 20 amp circuit. We will not be providing wheelchair or scooter rentals.
While there is no designated festival parking, there will be ADA parking spots available throughout all general parking garages and lots near the festival area. ADA parking is available in these lots on a first come, first serve basis. You will need a verified handicap placard, permit, or license plate to park in these lots. The person to whom the handicap credential is issued must be present in the vehicle, as a driver or passenger.
There will be an ADA entrance located to the right of the main entrance next to VIP, which will be labeled with signage. Disabled guests may use this entrance to safely enter the venue. After using the ADA entry, please visit the Accessibility Services kiosk immediately after so that you can keep using the ADA entry for the following show days.
Please note that the ADA entrance continues on hard ground and does not lead into the sand. The main entrance lines do disperse directly into the sand. If you cannot traverse through the sand, be sure that you’re entering through the ADA entrance.
