    This event is come and go as you please, so feel free to join in the fun as it suits you throughout the day. 
    Plan to arrive early - Heavy traffic is expected, so give yourself extra time to navigate the grounds. 
    Bring cash - If you plan on betting, note that only cash or betting vouchers are accepted. Concessions accept cash or credit/debit card.
    Dress comfortable/business casual - While free shuttles are available, there can be quite a bit of walking depending upon where you park.
    Free parking is available, but it will fill up early!
    Please enter through Gate 1 (Man OWar Boulevard). Take your first right, which leads to the Keene Barn & Entertainment Center. Go up to The Hill and around the buildings to the free parking areas. Our tent will be positioned in the tailgate area with signage.
