Help with your Fall Festival Booking

Help with selecting the best hotel for you

This newsletter will focus on the official Festival accommodations to help you choose the best option.

Please note that a major benefit of booking your accommodation through the Festival website is that you will also be able to book the shuttles, which will run between the hotels and Festival site throughout the day.

In addition to being chosen for their quality, price and proximity to amenities, the official Festival hotels were also selected to meet the various needs of Festival attendees.
