Festival announces policy changes

If you want to help everyone have a great time at the Festival at Sandpoint this year, keep in mind a few changes to line and traffic flow policy.

First, traffic flow on Ontario Street will be one-way between Boyer and Marion on Festival days. This will permit two lanes of one-way traffic for easy drop-off on either side of the street. Second, only residents with permits are allowed to access Florence between Ontario and Erie.

Finally, if you’re utilizing the number system for early entry into the Festival, lines will now form on the venue lakeside to avoid blocking the Ontario sidewalk. Remember, camping for the lowest entry numbers is prohibited. Start lining up at around 6 a.m. to ensure you are among the first to be admitted when the Festival gates open.

While we have you ...

... if you appreciate that access to the news, opinion, humor, entertainment and cultural reporting in the Sandpoint Reader is freely available in our print newspaper as well as here on our website, we have a favor to ask. The Reader is locally owned and free of the large corporate, big-money influence that affects so much of the media today. We're supported entirely by our valued advertisers and readers. We're committed to continued free access to our paper and our website here with NO PAYWALL - period. But of course, it does cost money to produce the Reader. If you're a reader who appreciates the value of an independent, local news source, we hope you'll consider a voluntary contribution. You can help support the Reader for as little as $1.
