Code of Conduct for an Unforgettable
OBF Music Festival Experience
Be kind, courteous, and respectful towards other attendees, staff, and performers. Respect each other's personal space, opinions, and cultural differences.
KEEP THE AREA CLEAN
Litter on the festival grounds. Help us keep our space clean by disposing of your trash properly. We provide trash and recycling bins throughout the location for your convenience.
Support our local brands and organizations by visiting our vendor marketplace. You can find a wide range of products and services from apparel and jewelry to wellness offerings.
Drink alcohol responsibly and avoid excessive drinking. Be aware of your surroundings, stay hydrated, and take breaks when needed.
PHOTOGRAPHY AND RECORDING
Photography and recording are permitted, but please be respectful and do not use flash photography during performances. Do not obstruct the view of other attendees or block any pathways.
Lastly, but most importantly, have fun! Let loose, dance, and enjoy the string festival experience with friends and family. Spread positive vibes and make unforgettable memories. We encourage attendees to arrive early to take advantage of the full day.
OUTSIDE FOOD AND BEVERAGES
Do not bring outside food into the festival premises. We offer a variety of food and beverage options, including vegan and non-alcoholic choices, provided by The Bronx Brewery and Empanology.
Clap during performances to show your appreciation for the artists. While it is customary in classical music to only clap at the end of a performance, at the OBF Music Festival, feel free to clap whenever you hear something impressive, or a beautify melody. This gesture will energize the performers and let them know you are enjoying their show.
