- In-person: We ask that you please wear a mask to protect our most vulnerable community members. Parking is street parking with curbs that have areas that are level to the street near the main entrance. Space is all one-level, compacted dirt. There is a ramp to the stage. Restrooms are all-gender and one stall has a bar on one side currently. Stalls have curtains and are in the process of being upgraded to doors. There is a main door to the bathroom where both stalls are, which you are also welcome to use. At night, the space has stage lights and overhead lights throughout the space, but some areas may be more challenging to navigate for individuals with low-vision or using mobility devices at night. We are always happy to adjust the lights as much as possible to meet everyone's needs. There will be a bar with non-alcoholic beverages available for purchase. If you need ASL, please let us know in advance and we can ensure an interpreter is there.
- Virtual: We will be utilizing Zoom. We can have captioning and/or ASL available, by request, so please let us know at least 72 hours prior to the event if you need either of these things.
