Check-In/Will Call is located at the Alton Visitor Center, 200 Piasa St. Alton, IL 62002. Every person redeeming a ticket for a glass/wristband MUST be present at Check-In and show valid ID. In other words, we will not hand out 4 glasses to one person because they bought the tickets. If you purchased your ticket online, you will need a printed ticket or a mobile ticket. Please review your email confirmation, follow the prompts, and HAVE YOUR TICKET READY BEFORE YOU ARRIVE.

There are several public parking options located within walking distance of Check-In (lot on Williams St., lot near the intersection of 5th and Piasa, and street parking throughout Downtown). You will receive a map at Check-In that outlines the day's band schedule, Artist/Vendor locations, Brewery locations and offerings, and the Shuttle Stop locations.

Water is your friend. Stay hydrated. Bring sunscreen. Positive attitude? Pack that in your satchel as well! Money for things like lunch, dinner, vendor wares and band merch!

This is a rain or shine event! Bring an umbrella if you're worried about the possibility of rain.

Please be respectful to our town, the establishments, and one another.
