Bags and coolers may be subject to search. We ask that you please leave the audio and video recording devices at home, as they are prohibited. In consideration of others, smoking is prohibited on the Festival grounds.
I'm not from the Philadelphia area and will need to make lodging arrangements. Do you have information on area hotels?
For your convenience we have compiled a list of area hotels here.
The Wyndham in Mt. Laurel is offering festival goers a special rate during the festival weekend. Find out more here.

- Low-back chairs permitted in designated areas
- Rain umbrellas
- Personal/non-professional cameras
- Non-alcoholic beverages in plastic containers
- Coolers (subject to inspection)
- Cell phones are allowed, but as a courtesy to artists and other patrons, we ask that you please turn your phones off during performances
The following items are prohibited:
- Glass containers of any kind
- Beach umbrellas and tents
- High-back chairs
- Professional cameras with telescopic lenses
- Alcoholic beverages from outside the festival
(Beer will be available for purchase at the festival. New Jersey state law requires that you must be at least 21, and you must present valid and acceptable ID to purchase alcoholic beverages.)
- Audio and video recording devices
- Pets, except service dogs
- Smoking on the Festival grounds
- Illegal drugs
- Weapons of any sort (firearms, knives, explosives, etc.)

Can I bring my own food and water?
Yes, you may bring your own food and water. However, please leave metal knives and utensils at home. There will also be a variety of food and beverage vendors at the festival as well.
Yes, you may reenter the festival after obtaining a wristband for that day. Wristbands will be available within the festival grounds each day. Holders of 3-Day Festival Passes must get a new wristband each day for re-entry.
Wiggins Park is handicapped accessible. There's a designated area for wheelchairs. And, handicapped-accible port-a-potties.
Security is always a priority at every event. As they do with every festival at Wiggins Park, Camden County officials provide a full staff of trained security and traffic officials, and visitor service representatives are stationed along the Waterfront. Both the Red Cross and EMS are present throughout the festival to attend to any medical needs. And police and fire officials are also present, and are an integral part of the overall safety and security procedures.
You can get two (2) tickets per festival day or two (2) 3-Day Festival Passes at the XPN member price. Any additional tickets must be purchased at the non-member ticket price.
It's by far the best value we ever offered. With the 3-Day Festival Pass, a single ticket gets you access to every day of the festival for one low price. You must present the ticket each day you attend (there are three stubs on each pass). You'll also need to obtain a new reentry wristband each day you attend.
Your tickets for Saturday and Sunday include access to the Camden Children's Garden where Kids Corner is taking over for the weekend! All you'll need is to show your festival reentry wristband to be admitted to the Camden Children's Garden.
Kids Corner in the Camden Children's Garden Activities
Kids Corner takes over the Camden Children's Garden at noon on Saturday and Sunday (July 25 & 26).
