This year we have a new seating map with lots of new ticket levels for you to choose from. Get right in front of the stage with our VIP and Pit tickets – guarantee yourself a seat in the reserved seating area – or bring a friend and blanket/chair to kick back in the general admission area.
Note: To purchase a campsite you must purchase at least one festival ticket.

Riverfest Seating Map
What do I need to get into the festival?
To get into the festival you'll need either a reserved seat, PIT, VIP or a general admission ticket. You do not need both. Parking is $10 per day and $20 for all three days.
*General Admission for children 12 and under is free when accompanied by an adult holding a general admission ticket. This offer is not valid for reserved seating ticket holders.
For those of you who want to get right up close to your favourite bands we have a section directly in front of the stage called "The Pit". This is a standing only area and there will be no chairs allowed. To make sure our reserved seating patrons have a good view, there will be a 5' no access area between the back of the pit and the fence in front of the first row. And with a 6' stage there will be great views to be had by all. Plus this year we're excited to have a stage thrust, which is a 4.5' high walkway for the artists to walk out into the crowd.
Our VIP area is a large 500+ person section to the right of the main stage. This is a standing only area and there will be no chairs allowed. Along with having an amazing view of the main stage you will also have a cash beverage service and food right in the VIP tent. Plus when your favourite bands get on stage you'll be able to rush into the VIP Pit so you can get right up to the front of stage.
In front of the stage we have rows of reserved seats. You can pick the exact seat you want and it'll be yours for Friday and Saturday all day. The Thursday pre-festival party is held on the b-stage and we'll have chairs on hand for you to use.
The general admission area is set up behind and beside the reserved seating section. In this area you're on the grass/pavement so bring a blanket, low-back chair or just stand and enjoy the show.
Parking is $10 per day or $20 for all three days.
- Can I get my same seats as last year?
We made a number of changes to the reserved seating layout and thus you will not be able to get the exact same seats this year. Past reserved ticket holders will receive a special early bird presale code so you'll have a chance at getting the best seats in the house.
- What the heck is "Will-Call"?
Will-call simply means you can order your tickets and then pick them up while the gates are open during the festival.
- When do tickets go on sale?
We'll have a special presale starting on October 24th for all past reserved seat ticket buyers. Past general admission ticket buyers will then have their presale starting on October 25 and sales will open to the general public on November 1, 2012 at 10AM. Stay tuned to your emails for those presale codes.
- Festival Wristband
When you arrive at the festival we'll scan your tickets and then give you a wrist band, which will be your ticket around the festival. The paper or e-ticket that you purchased is now redeemed and cannot be used again. Only reserved ticket holders should carry their paper ticket with them in order to prove what seat they are in. If you lose your wristband you will not be issued another one and will be denied access into the festival. We understand that some festival goers will need to go to work during the festival and in some cases will need to cut off the wrist band. In this case please bring the entire wristband with you back to the gates and we will issue you a new one.

Feel free to email us with any of your questions.
