Important NEW information about Britt's alcohol policy...

ALCOHOL:

Britt is licensed under ORS 471.178. Under this license, patrons may bring in wine or beer into the Britt Park (no hard alcohol). Also under this license, all alcohol that is brought into the Britt Park by patrons must be either consumed or disposed of before patrons leave the park. In compliance with OLCC regulations, bags, coolers and other items may be subject to search as patrons leave the park. Please only bring in an amount that you can safely consume while enjoying a concert at Britt. Please drink responsibly. Britt Festivals or its artists reserves the right to prohibit wine or beer (any alcohol) from coming into the Britt grounds for select concerts.

In 2014, Britt will ban outside alcohol on approximately 10 concerts. Please see the letter from the Chairman of the Britt Board and Alcohol Policy FAQ for more information. 

In 2014, outside alcohol will be prohibited at the following concerts: The Fray, Gavin DeGraw/Matt Nathanson, The Soulshine Tour featuring Michael Franti & Spearhead, American Idol Live, Peter Frampton's Guitar Circus with Buddy Guy, Montgomery Gentry, Matisyahu/Ozomatli, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Jennifer Nettles and The Avett Brothers.

HOUSE RULES:

As part of our Britt community, we're asking you to help us make each performance the best possible experience, for yourself, your friends, your seat neighbors...everyone. As you enjoy the concerts, please follow these house rules (printable format):

  • Smoking is allowed only in the smoking section designated at the top of the hill.
  • Drink responsibly. 
  • The reserved benches and Premium Blanket/SRO sections are not general admission seating. Enter these sections only if you bought a reserved ticket. 
  • Don't let a disagreement escalate. If there is a problem, please ask the security staff (in black or white shirts) for assistance. Anyone who starts a fight will be removed by security. 
  • Throwing any item at another patron is strictly prohibited, and warrants removal by security. 
  • Go with the flow when it comes to dancing and sitting. Expect that your neighbors may stand up to dance. On the flip side, please be aware of those around you as you dance, and avoid obstructing their view.
  • Don't talk so loud that you disturb your neighbors' ability to hear the music.
