General Admission @ Fort Adams State Park
An area within the general admission section on the lawn in front of the Fort Stage is reserved for disabled patrons. This section is located in a roped off area in front of the sound board. This area is accessible by a paved road from the festival entrance. Because space is limited, each disabled patron is allowed one guest to accompany them. Seating is not provided in this area so guests should bring blankets or low-backed lawn chairs.
