Festival FAQS

Accessibility:

The Festival grounds and port-o-potties will be largely wheelchair, walker and stroller accessible, however the floral installations in our Barn are limited to a 32” wide accessible doors. If you are in a wheelchair, use a walker, or like to take your time examining flowers, we suggest you purchase morning tickets for your best experience.

COVID Safety:

The Festival is held mainly outside in fields and large tents. One exhibit will be held in our Barn which has ample HEPA air filters. We encourage all who want to wear a mask to do so, but we will not be requiring them.

Dogs:

Please do NOT bring dogs or other pets to the Festival unless you require a service animal for accessibility. Regardless of how well your animal is trained, this is not the place for them. Thanks for your understanding. 

Donating tickets:

You can pre-purchase ticket to be donated at our ticket site. All donated tickets will be distributed to local residents who aren't able to afford the ticket price though our neighborhood partners.

Families with children:

Children ages three and under may enter free when accompanied by a ticketed adult. Most of our family friendly activities occur in the afternoon – so we suggest you get those tickets. Our evening celebration is geared toward ages 21+.

Location:

The Festival will be held outside at What Cheer Flower Farm at 63 Magnolia St., Providence, RI, 02909.

Parking:

The Festival is staggered over three ticketed time slots (morning, afternoon and evening) to ease congestion. While there is on-street parking and limited parking lot availability in the area, we suggest attendees carpool, use ride-sharing services, take RIPTA (multiple bus routes serve Olneyville Square), walk and or bike to the festival. Yes, we will have plenty of secure bike parking on site!

Rain & inclement weather:

Bring an umbrella! The 2,500 dahlias blooming in our fields are just as happy in the rain or sun. Plus, many of the exhibits, shopping, snacks and drinks take place under cover in large tents and our Barn. If there is a hurricane, we will announce closure, otherwise, we look forward to seeing you!
