What to Bring and Not to Bring

As with many music festivals these days, there are things you are allowed to take to FVDED in the Park and things you are not allowed to take. Exact rules for the 2024 event are to be confirmed.


Recommended Things to Take

Good things that you could take to FVDED in the Park most years include an empty or unopened water bottle, a blanket to sit on and a sweater if the evenings are cool. A free water station is usually available for people wanting to fill their bottles.

No umbrellas are allowed, even if it looks like rain’s in the forecast. The event takes place no matter the weather. Take a raincoat if the weather looks iffy.


Prohibited Items at the Festival

Items NOT allowed at the concert venue typically include alcohol, sharp objects, cameras with detachable lenses, video cameras, selfie sticks, Frisbees, skateboards, BBQs and outside food and beverages, as well as the usual list of obvious items like drugs and weapons.

Smoking is also usually not permitted at the festival, including vaporizers. Nor are lawn chairs or umbrellas as they obstruct the view of other spectators. Dogs are also not allowed, unless they are a working guide dog.

For everyone’s safety, bags are normally inspected prior to entry and banned items are confiscated.

FVDED Parking and Transit

Holland Park is beautiful, but it doesn’t offer a lot of parking options. Using public transit is highly recommended, and Central City SkyTrain Station is on the other side of the Central City Mall, so not too far away. King George SkyTrain Station is even closer, located on just the other side of King George Boulevard.

Music fans attending the festival are usually encouraged to carpool and use public parking at the King George Station or at the Scott Road SkyTrain Station, and then from there take the SkyTrain three stops to King George. For folks dropping off passengers at the site, they can do so along the west side of King George Boulevard.

Bikes aren’t normally allowed inside the festival venue, but there are bicycle racks and a supervised valet service outside on a first-come, first-served basis (or at least there was in previous years).

TIP: Fans are encouraged to arrive early to find a parking spot for their car or bike. Central City mall is open Saturdays until 7:00 pm and those attending the festival can shop beforehand, grab a bite to eat or have a pre-concert beverage.
