FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is there a cap on tickets?
Yup! We're all about ensuring a comfy experience and chances to meet the maker, so we've capped the numbers.
Can I buy tickets or upgrade at the gate?
While tickets may be available at the gate,
we strongly recommend pre-purchasing. But if you decide to try your luck on the day, don't forget to bring the swear jar for a little price increase (that could otherwise be spent on wine 😉)! Please Note: upgrades
to tasting tickets at the gate are unavailable, so choose your ticket wisely. For enquiries, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I get a refund?
Well, you see, once you're in, you're in! We don't do refunds or exchanges for those "changed my mind" moments or sudden life plot twists. Rain, hail, or shine – we're committed to the Grape Escape life. Check out our Festival Terms for all the nitty-gritty before taking the plunge. And hey, if your great Aunty's corgi throws a birthday bash you can't miss, register your tickets with Tixel for resale!
What's the scoop on General Admission vs. Tasting Tickets?
TASTING TICKETS – Get ready for an experience! Tasting Tickets come with a souvenir tumbler
for free wine, beer & cider tastings until 3pm (Sat & Sun only) so you can try before you buy. It's like a cellar
door adventure, minus the dusty barrels. Also, enjoy free Cloakroom and Wine Store service – a $5 value. Just
remember, there are no tastings at Feel-Good Friday, but we've got local drops to purchase at the festival
GENERAL ADMISSION TICKETS – No free sips here! GA's are the go-to for designated drivers or those who've got their beverage playbook down. Whether it's by the glass or bottle, you're in control of your liquid destiny.
With all the festival buzz, both GA and Tasting Tickets promise a cracking good time!
What can/can't I bring to the event?
PLEASE BRING -
- Feel free to flex your interior design skills with a table (no throne-sized tables please), a foldable chair, or a picnic blanket. We also lay out furniture throughout the site, just not enough for thousands of people. Don't forget the reusable water cups because hydration is key for a 3-day festival right?!
CAN'T BRING -
- Sorry, no bringing your own tent or market umbrella. We're here to support our exhibitors, so BYO feast or bevvies are also a no-go. Water stations are plentiful, so leave your hydration strategy to us. And yes, our security will give your bag a once-over for the sake of festival harmony.
FOUR-LEGGED FRIENDS -
- We adore furry pals, but this party isn't for them. Certified assistance animals get the VIP treatment, though —because they're real stars.
So, for the fine print on what's a no-go, check out our Festival Terms.
Will there be Vegetarian, Vegan and Gluten Free options?
Oh, you betcha! Our exhibitors are like culinary wizards, conjuring up delights for vegetarians, vegans, and the gluten-averse. We've even got a zero% drinks supplier for those who like their beverages as pure as their intentions. Got specific dietary quirks? Email us at email@example.com, and we'll do our best to work some magic.
