Can I leave and come back?
Yes. Keep in mind your original ticket (on your phone or printed) is required for re-entry.
Are kids welcome?
Maha offers entertainment for the whole family and kids 10 and under get in free with a ticketed adult, but we can not guarantee that the music will be suitable for all ages. Things might get a bit rowdy up front, and as a general rule, the area directly in front of the stage is rarely kid-friendly. However, there’s plenty of space for everyone in much calmer areas throughout the park.
What is your bag policy?
All bags will be thoroughly searched by security before entry. Metal detectors will also be used for search. Hard-sided coolers and over-sized backpacks (i.e. backpacking through Europe-style) are not permitted.
No bag? Reduce your time in line by using the “Bag Free” line and breeze through security.
Are cameras or photography allowed?
Small or disposable cameras are allowed. Professional cameras are NOT allowed. If it has a detachable lens, it’s a no-go. Video and audio recording are NOT allowed. If you’re a member of the press you can apply for a photo pass here.
What are the accepted methods of payment?
For safety and security, credit/debit cards or a Maha Money card must be used at all points of transaction within the festival. Cash can be loaded onto a Maha Money card at Guest Services to be used at all festival vendors. Funds unspent on a Maha Money card at the end of the festival can not be refunded.
Is smoking allowed?
Smoking and vaping are allowed in the designated area only, near 67th and Center St. Details will be on the festival map.
What are Maha’s sustainability efforts?
Maha Festival is a reduced-waste event. There are a number of recycling stations located all throughout the park, with Green Team members on hand to help advise on which bin to use. Thanks to HDR and Hillside Solutions for their support of keeping Maha sustainable. P.S. Don’t litter!
