To ensure the safety and enjoyment of all guests, the following rules apply as conditions of admission to, and participation in, the OUF:

  • Prior to entry, all bags and knapsacks will be subject to inspection by security personnel, and all guests will be required to pass through a standard metal screening process.

  • Visitors carrying inappropriate articles or any other item deemed disruptive to the event must return them to their vehicles or discard them in the bins provided at the entrance prior to entry.
  • Visitors who do not agree to a bag inspection and screening process or who refuse to discard inappropriate items will not be allowed to enter the OUF.
  • Visitors will be removed if they engage in any disruptive behaviour.
  • Guests who appear to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs will be denied entry or will be required to leave the OUF.
