Accessibility Information for Guests with Disabilities
DelFest is accessible to all guests with disabilities.
The festival is held on the Allegany County Fairgrounds, which is an ADA compliant facility. Paved roads and pathways go throughout the property with hardened dirt paths in the campgrounds. The land is relatively flat with some small hilly areas in the campgrounds. The length of the venue is nearly ¾ of a mile long.
Patrons with a valid, state-issued accessible parking placard or tag must purchase the appropriate parking pass in order to park on-site. Upon arrival, show the parking attendant your Parking Pass and valid accessible placard and you will be directed to our Accessible Camping, centrally located within the fairgrounds and in close proximity to accessible bathhouses.
If you will be arriving in an RV (any vehicle 18’ or longer), you must purchase an RV Pass.
If you need access to an electrical outlet, please notify us in advance of the festival and let the parking attendant know upon your arrival – firstname.lastname@example.org.
All patrons must follow the Arrival Guidelines

Placards and the Law
We have had reports of some patrons borrowing or otherwise falsely using accessible parking placards or tags. This uses valuable space that we are reserving for patrons who actually have disabilities. It is against the law for anyone to use an accessible parking placard that was issued to another person. It is against the law to duplicate an accessible parking placard. It is against the law to park in an accessible parking space without a legitimate accessible parking placards. As vehicles arrive, we will check identification to confirm legitimate use of these placards and will contact authorities in situations with improper use.
