Some Cool Things To Do

WHERE IS THE FESTIVAL?

Warning:

Don't rely on GPS Apps like Google Maps and Waze.
GPS services like Google or Apple maps or apps like Waze can help you in finding your way to the Festival. However, as traffic congestion begins to build, they may suggest alternate routes. IGNORE THEM! These alternative routes may take you on residential or side roads that have been closed to Festival traffic. You may find yourself forced by law enforcement to retrace your route and get back onto the main roads, losing your original place in line and adding more time to your journey.

Is TRF Doing A Sale of The Century?

Unfortunately, Sale of the Century won't be an event that will return to TRF. We try to ensure we listen to our patrons and their feedback, but our pricing is dictated by ensuring the longevity of our festival. We're about to hit year 50 - and we want 50 more! In addition, we value our venues and entertainers and want to ensure they are given a space to succeed and be given the compensation we feel they rightly deserve.
