Permitted only in the designated area near the top of the hill, inside the Britt park. Smoking (including marijuana and vaping) is not allowed in concert seating areas or the upper picnic area.
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 (including vaping) is allowed only in the smoking section designated at the top of the hill.
- 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.
