Q: Is a three day pass three separate tickets?
A: No, a three day pass is one wristband that you must leave on for all three days.  Do not tamper with or remove your wristband.  You will need to buy a new wristband to re-enter the festival grounds if you tamper with or remove your wristband.

Q: On Saturday morning I have to work before I come back to the festival and I can’t wear the wristband at work.

A: Please don’t. Only tickets bought from the California Roots Festival website, at the Official California Roots Ticket Outlets, or through are guaranteed to be authentic.  We therefore recommend that you do not but tickets from a secondary ticket vendor not listed above.  Fake tickets and wristbands may appear to look like the real thing but they will not pass the California Roots Festival security measures.  Fake tickets will be turned away.  The California Roots Festival is not responsible for any counterfeit tickets.

You can pick them up at the front gate or inside at the festival merchandise booth.  In addition to the stage schedules, you can find a festival grounds map plus big ups to our partners and sponsors.

I am riding my bicycle or skateboard to the festival.  Where can I stash it?
The Green Peddlers provide a FREE valet for bicycles and skateboards.  They are located just inside the festival front gates on the right side

It sucks when I go to a festival and there’s trash all over the place.  How is the California Root Festival going to deal with all that trash?
We agree.  It’s totally gross when that happens.  We are working with The Offset Project to create a Zero Waste Event.  You can find more info about The Offset Project here.  We need your help in keeping the venue clean by placing all of your trash, recycling and compost in the proper receptacles found throughout the festival grounds.  Leave the Scene Clean!
