We recommend not wearing a coat if at all possible. There will be a coat room; however, it is not in a convenient place and is not monitored.

Food, non-alcoholic beverages, and libations (alcohol) are served at this event. IDs will be checked for all alcoholic beverages. Credit & debit cards will be accepted at the bars and food stations.



Due to neighborhood residential only parking surrounding the Jacob Henry Mansion , we strongly suggest using a ride-share, carpool, or taxi.

Designated secured parking lots will be available during the event for a $10.00 parking fee. Free shuttle service will run between these parking lots and the Jacob Henry Mansion. More details and maps of the parking areas are available in the Directions section.
