ACCESSIBILITY

WHAT WILL HAPPEN IN AN EMERGENCYEVACUATION?
 Inkcarceration is a rain or shine event, however, there are several instances in which we would pause, evacuate or cancel the show due to inclement weather, including (but not limited to): severe thunderstorms, lightening in our festival radius, excessive wind, hail, flooding, or as directed by local emergency personnel.  
In the event of an evacuation due to weather, fans who drove to the event will need to seek shelter in their vehicles or return to the campgrounds (if possible) to wait out the delay. Fans that arrived via Rideshare or do not have access to a vehicle for shelter may be instructed to shelter in place in the Reformatory.  Fans will be informed of any emergency situation via audio and video announcements from the stages, the INK App push notifications and social media.  We recommend fans download the INK app and follow our socials to stay up-to-date with festival communication.  
In the event of an evacuation, staff will provide direction to all fans and the Access Center staff will work directly with fans with disabilities to get to shelter safely. More information on evacuation procedures will be available on the festival map and at the Access Center. 
WHAT IF I NEED SEATING?

Inkcarceration is a general admission event with no assigned seating.  Due to capacity and safety concerns, Inkcarceration does not allow lawn chairs. Exceptions can be made for a medical necessity.  Please email access@inkcarceration.com to make this request.  

DO I NEED AN ACCESS WRISTBAND TO USE ALL OF THE ACCESSIBILITY SERVICES?

No. The Access wristband is only needed to access the accessible stage viewing platform and not required for any other ADA services provided by the festival.

CAN I BRING PRESCRIPTIONS OR SPECIAL DIETARY FOODS?
Outside food and drink are not allowed inside the festival, but if you have a special medical dietary restriction, enough food for the one person for the day will be allowed. Fans are allowed to bring their medically necessary materials and medications into the festival, provided that all medicine has a prescription label with the fan’s name. Medicines needing to be inhaled or smoked are prohibited unless in a prescribed inhaler. Please note: Drugs of any kind (incl. cannabis, cannabis products) are prohibited.
Staff at the entry gates will verify the contents of any medically necessary materials. Out of concern for the festival staff who handle the trash, please dispose of your medical waste and syringes in the proper disposal, which is located at the medical tent. Please do not dispose of these items in other trash bins at the festival.

Pets are not allowed within the festival grounds. However, ADA-recognized service animals, which have been trained to provide assistance to an individual with a disability, are welcome. If accompanied by a service animal, you will be provided a Fan Notice of Responsibility for a Service Animal. Please enter through the Reformatory Road entrance and visit the Access Center for assistance.

IF I AM A WHEELCHAIR USER, CAN I GET AROUND?
The campgrounds and festival grounds are a combination of concrete, asphalt and natural terrain. We have done our best to accommodate for mud, branches, roots and dramatic inclines but they do still exist. Please be safe, we will have staff on hand at the Accessibility Center to direct you to the best route to stages, platforms, and activations.
The Festival does not provide personal care or push services of any kind or wheelchairs for rent or loan. Wheelchairs, power wheelchairs, and three or four-wheeled scooters are allowed only for use by patrons with mobility disabilities. For safety reasons, requests to use any other power-driven mobility devices will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
Powered wheelchairs may also be charged at the Access Center. Patrons should bring all cords and accessories needed to charge their devices. Chargers must use a 110-volt, 20-amp circuit.
Accessible portable toilets are available at the ends of each bank of portable toilets throughout the festival venue.
Note: The second and third floors of the Reformatory are not wheelchair-accessible. All bathrooms inside the Reformatory are ADA accessible.
WHAT SERVICES DO YOU PROVIDE FOR DEAF/HARD OF HEARING PATRONS?

Deaf/Hard of Hearing patrons can request an accessibility wristband at the Access Center. This wristband is to show Festival staff that the patron plus ONE companion is eligible to enter the accessible viewing area with ASL Interpreters. The accessibility wristband is non-transferrable.
