Q:  What is the parking situation?


A:  There is very limited parking in the 4th Tap surrounding area at local businesses.  These parking spots are park at your own risk.  Please check signage to make sure you will not get towed.  We suggest you carpool, catch an Uber or Lyft or take public transportation to the Festival.  Kick Butt Cafe has PLENTY of parking around the area including the specs parking lot so this is your best bet to get checked in early on Friday when doors open!


Q:  Will there be check in?


A:  Yes!  There will be a chance to get checked in Friday at the kick off party or any other day of the Festival at the will call/ticket purchase booth.  We will have a limited number of daily passes and if they sell out they sell out.  Max capacity for Sat/Sun is 1,000 and single day tickets will be $25 only available at the door.  Friday will be $15 only available at the door as well.


Q:  What’s the deal with the Carnival games?


A:  The carnival games are all hand made by the staff and vampire themed!  We had a lot of fun putting these together and they’re mostly just for fun but you may just get a sticker or something small for winning!  The games are free to play for all attending but you can tip the carnival game attendant if you wish.

Q:  Will there be food and drinks?


A:  Both venues, Kick Butt and 4th Tap have food available to those who would like to purchase some.  4th Tap brews up some amazing beer and will have our very own Nosferat-Brew at the event for us!  Kick Butt has both beer and liquor available at their venue.


Q:  What’s the deal with the photo-ops?


A:  We will have several photo ops available throughout the venue!  Some will be Nosferatu themed, some vampire themed and so on!  We will have a total of 3-4 photo ops in general.  Most of these will be selfie style but some may actually have a photographer stationed there.  If you need help finding any of these photo ops flag down a worker or ask someone!
