Your purchases help the Festival present free shows.

We’re proud to say that 90 to 95 percent of the food sold on the Festival site is purchased less than 40 km from its point of distribution. As well as support the local economy, these local food purchases allow us to reduce carbon emissions stemming from the transportation to market of products from abroad.
