Bring a blanket or low back lawn chairs, sunscreen, reusable cups and containers, and an appetite for adventure. We’ll have plenty of great food options but you may wish to bring a picnic. Some people might also like to have bug repellant on hand. The festival is a rain or shine event so you may want to bring a waterproof jacket or small handheld umbrella.

If you are bringing a lawn chair, please be respectful of your neighbors and situate yourself in the upper portion of the lawn. This leaves the lower space clear so that those on blankets can enjoy a clear view of the stage too.

Please DO NOT bring pets (see below), alcohol (we’ve got you covered with local craft beer, wine, and cider from New City Brewery and Abandoned Building Brewery), glass containers, tents, umbrellas (the small handheld variety is okay in case of showers), drugs & drug paraphernalia, weapons of any kind, or fireworks. But you knew that.

Please note that smoking of any kind is not allowed in the park proper.

We love pets, but no pets are allowed at the Festival, unless they are ADA service animals. Any pets for emotional support or comfort are not covered by the ADA, or our insurance policy, and we cannot allow them into the park.

There is limited parking behind Eastworks. You may also find a few spaces behind Keystone and Mill 180 on Pleasant Street. However, spaces may be limited during Food Truck Fridays. Please consider parking on side streets and along Lovefield Street and walking to Millside Park.

A limited number of parking spaces are available in the Ferry Street Lot for attendees with handicapped plates and placards. There is a ramp from the Mill 180 Lot down to the park. Please keep in mind that the Ferry Street lot will be reserved for accessible parking only. It WILL NOT be available for pick up and drop off.  There are many pedestrians in the area and it is not safe.

Please do not park at 3 Ferry Street or the American Legion. You will be towed.

Save time and energy and come by bike! Thanks to our friends at Mass Bike PV we will have FREE, secure bike valet parking.

Yes! Millside Park is wonderfully accessible with a paved walkway that encircles the lawn, making it very friendly to those in wheelchairs and with limited mobility. Designated parking spaces are available for attendees with Disability Plates and Placards in the parking lot adjacent to the festival entrance at 2 Ferry Street.

Yes! We have partnered with MassBike PV to offer FREE, secure valet parking for bicycles on all three nights.

Millpond.Live is a rain or shine event, so feel free to bring a small hand held umbrella or a poncho if it looks gloomy. We plan to dance regardless of weather.

Yes, we need your help! If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out the application here.
