Q & A
Can I bring my dogs if they're not participating in any of the contests? Yes, all dogs are welcome, but are prohibited inside the buildings to be in compliance with state laws concerning animals around food. Please remember to clean up after your dogs!
Will there be a limited food menu? Yes. To keep our wait times down so that everyone can enjoy their time at Brontoberfest, we will only be serving a limited menu on this day. Please do be patient when wait times are longer, as this will be a busy day and we have a small kitchen.
Does it cost to attend Brontoberfest? No, this is free admission, full of fun for the whole family.
Will there be a shuttle or other parking available? As we have limited parking, carpooling with a DD is always best! There will be no shuttle, etc. You will find a field connected to our regular parking lot for extra parking.
