McCauley Music Fest: Things to remember before heading out

The gates to the parking lot at the McCauley Mountain Music Festival will open at noon on Saturday, August 6 with venue gates opening at 1 p.m.

This year’s festival will consist of two stages, the main Chalet stage as well as a side stage that will enable the music to keep going during set breaks on the main stage.

Side stage music will begin at 2 p.m. with music on the main stage starting at 3 p.m. featuring The Nards with Paul Case.

Music will continue throughout the day until after the headlining act, 10,000 Maniacs, graces the stage during their 9 p.m. set.

Throughout the day, beverages will be available at the Labatt Blue Biergarten, and food will be provided by Adirondack Café.

It is important to remember that while coolers and pop-up shelters may not be brought into the venue area, attendees may bring coolers and pop-ups to keep at their parking and camping spots.

Camping for this year’s festival is included in the ticket price of $30 and will be stationed in a sectioned off portion of McCauley Mountain near Mac’s Back. There will also be a parking area for guests who wish to bring trailers and RV’s to the festival.

When guests arrive at the gate, they will be asked to present their tickets and will be given a wristband that will allow them re-entry access to the festival so that they may come and go, as they like.

In addition, those with wristbands may take a ride on McCauley Mountain’s scenic chairlift for a discounted price.

The period for pre-sale tickets has passed, but tickets will be available at the gate on Saturday.
