EARTH-FRIENDLY!

As we all know, recycling has become an issue both around the country and here in Tippecanoe County.  As a result, IFG is attempting new strategies this year that will help us to be good stewards of Battlefield Park and our local resources:

  • We encourage all attendees to first REDUCE and REUSE! If possible, bring reusable water bottles. 

  • Please take back with you anything that you can easily recycle at home.

  • Please be alert to how to separate our recyclables from the trash.  These 'waste streams' CANNOT be co-mingled or everything will be treated as trash.

  • Trash cans are conveniently located throughout the park.  Please use these for any trash items - specifically used food containers like pizza boxes.

  • Please place your glass, cans, or plastic bottles in the designated recycling containers.  Be alert - we cannot take used food containers. These must be treated like trash.

Our on-site volunteers will be available to answer questions and to help you place your trash/recyclables into the correct bins. Your help is greatly appreciated. If we each do a little, together we can do a lot.

 

HANDICAP ACCESSIBLE

The Indiana Fiddlers' Gathering not only prides itself on being a fully accessible event but has been recognized by the Indiana Arts Commission as a model of festival accessibility.

In 1990, the Fiddlers' Gathering brought in Therapeutic Innovations, Inc., of Brookston, Indiana, to conduct a study of the festival grounds. The Fiddlers' Gathering then implemented Therapeutic Innovations' recommendations into the grounds, as well as subsequent follow-up reports.

There are extensive handicap facilities integrated into the festival, including ample handicap parking (which is monitored), plenty of accessible bathroom facilities, and wheelchair-accessible seating areas close to the main stage.

And our staff is always available to accommodate any special needs.
