Where do we park?
There are several free parking lots located in the downtown Temple area adjacent to the Festival. Parking is first come, first serve, so get there early if you want a premium spot!
Where and when can we enter the festival?
This year's Bloomin' Festival has three entrance gates, located at 7th Street, E Avenue B, and W Avenue A, adjacent to the carnival entrance. All gates open at 5:00 p.m. on Friday and 10:00 a.m. on Saturday.
Can we bring lawn chairs and/or blankets with us?
Yes, you absolutely can! However, please be mindful that space is limited; we ask that you be courteous to your festival neighbors and please stand if possible so that everyone can get as close to the stage as they can.
What can't we bring with us?
Pets are not allowed on the Festival grounds, so please leave them at home. You also may not bring any outside food or drink through the gates.
How do we buy drinks?
You will be able to purchase drink tickets for both beer and soft drinks at ticket booths located close to one of our two beer tent locations throughout the festival grounds, which you will be able to trade in for beer and drinks at will.
Are there bathrooms on site?
Yes! There absolutely are!
Can we come and go from the festival?
Yes! You absolutely can! You will receive a wristband at the gate that will allow you to come and go as you please. (So please don't take off your wristband unless you don't want to come back!)
Will I need to bring cash?
If you'd like to eat, drink, or shop at Bloomin', you will need cash. Some vendors may accept credit cards, but we make no guarantees. There will be an ATM on site.
Is the carnival included in the price of a ticket?
Your Bloomin' wristband will also give you access to the carnival on Friday and Saturday. Carnival rides and activities, however, may cost an additional surcharge.
What if it rains?
It won't. But if it does, the festival will go on, rain or shine. In the case of severe weather, festival officials will work closely with police and band management to ensure maximum safety. Canceled or delayed performances will only occur during severe weather situations.
