Can I bring my Service Animal? Your service animal will be permitted into the event so long as they remain on a leash or held, and are wearing the appropriate vest or paraphernalia marking them as working or service.
ADA and Service Animal Guidelines: Typically service animals are permitted into events so long as they remain on a leash or held, and are wearing the appropriate vest or paraphernalia marking them as working or service. ADA guests who need to bring in outside food typically would be able to go in so long as gate security is aware. Last year this came up a handful of times and we told the guest and security that they needed to explicitly tell security it was for ADA needs.
ADA can go through a separate line, or a VIP line.
ADA guests do NOT have to provide any documentation that they are in need of the service assistance. It is fine to ask that the animal is wearing the appropriate vest or paraphernalia showing it is working or in service.
As it pertains to ADA viewing areas, ADA guests are allowed (1) companion to join them in the ADA viewing areas. The reason for not allowing more is to ensure there is enough space to accommodate all ADA guests.
