Safety & Services

We all look forward to this weekend in July, so of course it’s important to stay safe and look out for each other. We want your Willows experience to be as wonderful as you’ve been imagining all year! Keep in mind we are a family friendly event and expect everyone to be responsible.

Bad Weather & Emergency Info

We have a plan for dealing with emergencies, including nasty weather. If a situation occurs, please listen for the siren and the announcements from our main stage.

We have an on site weather person monitoring weather conditions and giving constant updates to changing conditions.

Come prepared for Mother Nature’s many gifts including sun-filled days and cooler evenings. Bring comfortable shoes, a hat, sunscreen, mosquito repellent, rain gear, a flashlight and something to sit on and stay out of the bush to avoid poison ivy and stinging nettle.

First Aid

The festival has  First Aid available - please go to the ticket booth and our First Aid personal will provide you with the assistance you need.
