Please DO NOT FEED or PLAY FETCH with our dog Hanna, despite how cute and persistent she may be.

What should I bring?

Bring the things that make you happy and comfortable … lawn chair, beverages, food, bug spray, flashlight. There are two restaurants in Finch: The Finch Restaurant, and Fat Les’ Chip Stand.

Bring some cash as there will be food on site from Simply Baked Catering for dinner and Sunday breakfast, and other items (such as band merchandise) for purchase. You’ll also want to have cash on hand to buy raffle tickets for some great prizes!

Beverages (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) are NOT SOLD at Barnstorm, so be sure to bring your own. You will want to sit down at some point, so it is a good idea to bring an outdoor chair. Yes it can be very hot during the day, but you should not be surprised how cool it can be in the evening, so be prepared and bring appropriate clothing. Be sure to bring a cooler packed with ice for your drinks and for your food so that it does not spoil throughout the day or night. Plan to spend the night at Barnstorm. The event is designed to accommodate a large number of tents for the evening in the camping section. You can buy a tent at Canadian Tire for $40 and there will be several people who will help you get your tent setup for the night – do not worry – this is the best thing to do.

Please do not drink and drive.

I heard there was a pool?

Yes, unsupervised!

What happens if it rains?

The show must go on every year rain or shine. Check weather radar for accurate information. There are several sheltered areas including “The Odditorium”.

How can I be part of the event?

We require sponsors and volunteers to give Barnstorm a boost! If you would like to sponsor the event or volunteer, please Contact Us. Volunteers get a laminated backstage pass, food and drink, as a special touch.

You can help “tic” best by having fun, helping to keep the grounds clean during the event and PLEASE USE CANS INSTEAD OF BOTTLES. “tic” has spent months planning and arranging this years annual event and wants to be sure that you and your good friends have a truly fun time!

Several garbage cans are made available throughout the property; please give your best effort to make sure garbage gets there.

Believe it or not, “tic” recycles and would ask everyone to ensure that bottles and cans ARE NOT put in the garbage cans, but in the appropriate recyclable containers provided throughout the property.

This is a friendly and fun gathering of good people – rude or excessive behaviour will not be tolerated and you will be asked to leave. GOOD TIMES, GOOD PEOPLE, GOOD MEMORIES!

…and of course, we don’t have to mention that basic common sense is expected and appreciated.
