Event Location & Physical Facilities

Lumped together in this chapter are many other matters that must be attended to make your festival a success. A few words about the site: it must be large enough to accommodate the crowd, but not so big that there are vast distances between the various areas of activity. City parks are commonly used as are county fairgrounds. Some groups have even had success with downtown areas, particularly around squares.

 

Location is another consideration when it comes to site selection. Not only should events take place fairly near their prospective attendees, these events need to be easy to get to. Areas along the route with potential bottlenecks - narrow roads, one-lane bridges, and the like - should be avoided. Likewise, property subject to fl ooding is not the best choice for an event. And, of course, there's no getting around the fact that event-goers arrive in vehicles, which somehow must be parked. If 10,000 people show up and they average three to a car, then a little over 3,000 vehicles must be parked. It's no wonder the sole responsibility of some event workers is arranging for parking. Among other things, their plans should include handicapper spaces.
