The Meltdown is excited to provide reasonable accommodations to make our events accessible for all attendees and participants! We want everyone to enjoy the event! This page will be updated with additional accessibility information as it becomes available. Please check back.
WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE ACCESSIBILITY OF MOSSWOOD PARK AND THE MELTDOWN?
Mosswood Park is a large outdoor venue with natural terrain. Access to all vendors and booths at the Meltdown may require covering large distances over grassy, uneven, and sometimes muddy ground. If you require assistance to access vendors or booths, go to the Access Booth, and one of our staff will help!
Accessible portable toilet facilities are provided.
The accessible viewing area is available to attendees with disabilities, plus one adult companion and/or minor children, as applicable. Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. The viewing area is accessible for people with mobility disabilities, including accessible pathways connected from the ADA entrance to the viewing area and accessible bathrooms. For more information about accessible pathways, please inquire at the Access Booth.
WHERE IS THE ACCESS BOOTH LOCATED?
An Access Booth will be conveniently located at the ADA entrance to the Meltdown. The ADA entrance will be clearly marked, with signs and posters. The Access Booth is available to support and address the needs of all attendees with accessibility needs.
- Get your map of accessibility areas.
- Have your ADA questions answered.
- Learn about all accessibility services.
IS THERE AN OPTION FOR MY PERSONAL ATTENDANT TO ACCOMPANY ME?
Attendees with disabilities who require the assistance of an attendant during the event can be accompanied by a companion. Being an ADA personal attendant or companion does not grant access to the event itself, however, companions will be able to accompany attendees with disabilities in ADA accessible areas. Please come together to the ADA entrance and Access Booth. Companions or personal attendants will not be able to use the ADA entrance alone.
CAN I BRING MY SERVICE ANIMAL? EMOTIONAL SUPPORT ANIMAL?
Service animals are permitted throughout the festival.
- NO emotional support animals, therapy animals, or companion animals.
- Pets are not allowed and will be turned away.
- Only legitimate service animals that are properly trained, wearing a service animal vest or harness, and under the proper care of their owners will be allowed into the Meltdown.
- Service animals must always remain by the handler’s side and must be harnessed, leashed, or tethered.
- If these devices interfere with the service animal’s work or the individual’s disability prevents using these devices, the individual must maintain control of the animal through voice, signal or other effective controls.
- Service animals must be housebroken and owners should clean up after them.
- Anyone bringing an animal will be responsible for and liable for any damage or injury caused by the animal.
- All animals should have legally required vaccinations (which may need to be verified).
I AM VISUALLY IMPAIRED. HOW CAN THE MELTDOWN ASSIST ME WITH NAVIGATING PRINTED MATERIALS?
Any volunteer at the Access Booth can help read printed materials.
DOES THE MELTDOWN PROVIDE AMERICAN SIGN LANGUAGE (ASL) INTERPRETERS?
We are so stoked to provide an ASL interpreter for portions of the show!!! More information will be provided as we get closer to the event!!
WHAT IS TRANSPORTATION LIKE FOR THOSE WITH ACCESSIBILITY NEEDS?
Transportation can be a challenge for everyone attending the Meltdown. Our advice to attendees is to utilize public transportation, rideshare, or taxi service when available. All public transportation methods have an accessible option.
