There is a free instrument check room, arts and craft and food vendors, and a consignment table to buy or sell instruments.
The festival utilizes both indoor and outdoor spaces on their fenced grounds. The site offers beautiful views, road access from multiple directions, bike access via the bike trail, and on-site handicapped access. In addition, the air-conditioned museum building provides space for vendors, workshops, festival information, and a respite from the heat, all the while surrounded by music, dance, storytelling, other folk activities, and beautiful mountain and valley views.
