By Order of the King:  Please Drink Responsibly!

We have been willing to work with any transportation company that can give patrons a ride to or from the festival to ensure the safety of our patrons and others. We work with the two hotels in Magnolia and La Torreta to offer a shuttle to and from the festival for anyone staying at those accommodations.  But what about those who drink too much but drove to the festival if they don’t have a designated driver or everyone else in their party is intoxicated? This year we are proud to announce a partnership with taxi services!  Patrons can choose to set their transportation needs in advance by contacting these partners or anyone at the information booth or security will call if requested.
