Can my partner come to take care of the kids, but not attend the workshops? Are kids welcome?
Unfortunately, due to fire regulations at our venue, we have a maximum total capacity of people onsite for the weekend, & therefore unable to accommodate more people than we've accounted for through ticket sales. Everyone attending needs to purchase a ticket or be a volunteer.
There will be no childcare provided, so please leave little ones at home. Minors over the age of 15 are welcome to attend with a parent or guardian (registration required for both).
Thank you so much for your understanding!
How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
What's the refund policy?
You are welcome to sell or give away your registration-- just let us know the name of the person who is coming in your place. There is no fee to transfer it to an alternate attendee.
