Elk RiverFest Rules

Elk RiverFest is a community celebration for people of all ages. Security personnel will be on duty at the entrance gates and throughout the event from start to finish. For the safety and enjoyment of all in attendance, please familiarize yourself with the event rules below:

Notice of Filming and Photography

When you enter, photography, audio, and video recording may occur. By entering the event premises, you're consenting to these things, and are aware these images/film may be used for future event promotion.

Elk RiverFest 2021


Beer, wine and liquor samples are available for adults 21 and older in the Sips on Main area only with the purchase of a wristband and proper identification. If you are caught with Sips on Main products outside of the designated area, your wristband will be removed and you will not be able to re-enter.

If you choose to smoke, be mindful of your surroundings, both people and habitat (cigarette butts are a leading factor in fires). Please fully extinguish and deposit cigarette butts in a trashcan when finished. There is no smoking at any city park, which means smoking at Rivers Edge Commons Park is not allowed. 


Elk RiverFest attendees are able to bring coolers with food and beverages, however we encourage you to support local food vendors by patronizing the selection on site for the celebration. Only pre-approved food vendors will be allowed to sell products on festival grounds.

Parking Information

A parking map will be available soon.

Keep the Scene Clean

Please dispose of all litter and recycling in the appropriate receptacles.

Lost Child Procedure

Contact an event staff employee or on-site emergency personnel immediately to report a lost child.


Leashed dogs are allowed at the Orono Park Family Zone per General Park Rules. Animals are not allowed at Sips on Main.
