 -Shade tents are not permitted on site. Shade tenting will be provided at the event and is available first-come-first serve.

 -Personal items must be removed from the premises promptly at the end of the night to allow event staff to clean.

 -Any items left behind during clean-up of the event site will be discarded.

 -City of Blue Ash is not responsible for property lost, stolen, damaged or left unattended.

Coolers of any size, alcohol, grills, sparklers, glass bottles, shade tents, tarps and pets are NOT permitted. Oversized bags, backpacks, and purses are subject to inspection by Event Security/Staff prior to entrance to the venue or at any time while inside the venue. National Artists prohibit photographs, audio or video recording of their concerts.

Free event parking is located nearby and marked with “Event Parking” sings. Absolutely NO RVs (recreational vehicles) of any kind are permitted in any parking locations without the express written permission from the parking lot business owner. RVs parked without permission will be towed at the owner’s expense.
