While going to a festival can be an amazing experience, it is easy to get swept up in the excitement and forget about safety. Here are some tips to help stay safe and healthy while having fun. Download our poster for your festivals.

  • Hydrate

    Stay cool and hydrated by dressing appropriately for the weather and stay in the shade when possible.

  • Party Safe

    Do not bring prohibited items into the event. Monitor your alcohol intake and consider using drug testing services on-site if available or visit your local health authority.

  • COVID-19

    Keep up to date on COVID-19 restrictions in your local health authority and the health authority of the event.

  • Protect Your Hearing

    Be prepared to bring earplugs to protect your ears and don't stand directly beside the speakers.

  • Buddy System

    Implement a buddy system with your friends where you look out for them, and they look out for you. Select a meeting spot in case either of you get lost.

  • Event Rules

    Look for and follow the event's Code of Conduct to keep you and everyone safe. If you see something, report to event organizers. They cannot fix what they don't know is wrong!
