Can I get a refund?
There are no refunds, but your ticket can be used by a friend or family member or even a stranger.
Are pets allowed at the festival?
We love pets! Bring them to Lighthouse Beer and Wine, sometimes we prefer them to people! But no pets allowed at the festival.
Are bags allowed? Should it be clear?
No large bags are allowed, please keep personal bags under 12inx12in–and it would be super helpful for our staff and also helpful to minimize contact if they are clear!
Can I leave the festival and come back?
This festival is a NO-RENTRY festival. You may not re-enter.
Can I drive to the festival myself?
There is no parking at Riverfront Park–but Wilmington has millions of parking options. You can park anywhere you’d please (of course abiding parking laws).
What are the Designated Driver tickets?
The designated driver (DD) ticket allows entrance to the festival, but no drinking privileges. Designated drivers entering the festival must be 21 years of age or older.
Can I drink wine with my beer ticket?
No and yes–beer tickets are good for only beer, and wine only for wine–but you can purchase tasting tokens that allow you to try things not included in your ticket! So head over to the Lighthouse Beer & Wine merchandise table and buy your chips! (They’re 5 for $5!)
Can I bring a cooler/water/drink bottles?
Coolers, bottles, or drink containers are not permitted into the festival grounds. Water stations are conveniently located around the festival. And other drinks are available to purchase.
Is Lighthouse Beer & Wine open during the festival?
Yes! The store will be open on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
I am having issues with my online tickets, who do I contact?
Lighthouse Beer & Wine cannot assist with technical issues involving online ticket sales. Use the the contact question form on the Universe website for our event…you’ll get a prompt response.
What if I do not have an ID?
Sorry, no one will be allowed to enter the festival without valid proof of age. This includes a valid driver’s license or passport. No ID = No entry.
What if it rains?
The festival will be held rain or shine. Check the weather before you leave your abode and dress appropriately, because there is no bad festival weather, just bad festival clothing.
