Here is some information to make your experience extra enjoyable.

Weather Permitting. This is a fundraiser for The Arts & Recreation Foundation of Overland Park. No Refunds.
General policy is that all events are held rain or shine, with the exception of severe/dangerous conditions.
Guest safety is our primary concern.
When severe weather conditions exist, we may choose to delay or cancel the event. If a weather-related delay is needed during an event, we will communicate decisions to guests via public address system, event staff & volunteers, and social media.
Guests may be asked to evacuate the event. When and if the event reopens will be determined on a case by case scenario depending on time of day, weather forecast, and whether the venue is deemed safe.
