Frequently Asked Questions for Festival Days

Questions about the Farmer’s market portion.

Please see the Farmers market page on this site.

Is there an ATM on site?

Yes the arena installed an ATM that is located in the Arena lobby near the washroom entrances.

What about allergies and food?

All Vendors are required to list all ingredients on their products so you can be aware of ingredients for allergy concerns.  Please double check with the vendors if you are unsure.  The Food Court will have Hamburgers (veggie and gluten free burgers will be available, Hotdogs (all beef), veggie platter, fruit platters, chips and pop/water.

Are there washrooms?

Yes there are washrooms in the lobby of the arena as well as the curling rink.  We will have porta potties around the grounds outside as well as a handicapped toilet.

Where do I park?

We would encourage residents of Morinville to walk to the different activities from their home.  People with mobility issues along with seniors are welcome to park in the designated Handicapped and Seniors parking at the Rendezvous Center.

Are Dogs allowed during the activities?

Any dog that will be in attendance needs to be on a leash at all times.  You are also responsible for cleaning up after your dog.  Please note the indoor pavilion is a pet free zone due to the food vendors.
What if it is raining?

Our vendors & activities are prepared for rain or shine.  Don’t let the weather stop you, wear comfy shoes, bring an umbrella and have some fun.  This includes the mid way carnival rides.

Is there a rule about smoking?

No smoking within in any buildings or within the beer gardens.  Also please no smoking in any activities areas such as the stands in loggers sports, etc.
Please be respectful of others when you light up.

What about Alcohol?

Alcohol is only allowed to be consumed within the beer gardens.  No outside alcohol will be permitted, ID is required.

Where will the first aid & information booth be?
The RV City Trailer will be located on 104st in front of the Rendez Vous Center.  This will house our Minor First Aid, Information booth Volunteer Center and our “lost and found”

Will there be fireworks?

Morinville Festival Society has decided as a committee to not host fireworks.  We as a group would like to put that money toward something more tangible in activities for your family.

Why a gate admission?

Due to the economic situation and the rising costs of hosting the festival our only option was a gated entrance fee to help absorb the costs.  To keep the cost low enough for the community the wristbands are one price for the entire weekend, but must be worn at all times. If you lose it or it rips off you will need to purchase a new one.  Most activities during the weekend happen within the gated portion of the festival and your gate admission will gain you access to all of those activities.  Show n Shine, Parade and (Helicopter Tours – fee applies) are not within the gated admission area and a wristband is not needed.

Why did you change the name of the festival?

In past years our annual June Festival always fell within a few days of the Marked Celebration of St. Jean Baptiste. But with that date moving from the 3rd week of June to the 4th and each year it would move, some of our larger, annual vendors were unable to attend. In order to keep bringing you awesome vendors each year a name change was necessary as the date’s may change from year to year. Our new name FESTIVAL DAYS will allow us to celebrate our town on any weekend in June.
