OFFICIAL AUDACY BEACH FESTIVAL 2022 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 an 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. Please read this informational guide thoroughly before sending an inquiry email. For any accessibility-related questions not answered in the guide, please email us at email@example.com. We will do our best to assist you and address your accessibility needs.
The venue is navigable for people with mobility disabilities. The event terrain consists of paved venue boardwalk and sand, with beach decking walkways over the sand. These accessible pathways connect throughout the venue including the 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 booth. 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.
RIDESHARE LOADING & UNLOADING LOTS
More information coming soon.
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 a designated ADA entrance located just west of the main entrance, along the boardwalk. Disabled guests may use this entrance to safely enter the venue. Please note that the ADA entrance continues on hard ground and does not lead into the sand, whereas the main entrance lines do. If you cannot traverse through the sand, be sure that you’re entering through the ADA entrance.
