How much do tickets cost?

Admission to Do Good Fest is free, but there is a parking fee of $20 per vehicle. Proceeds from your purchase will be donated to Branches of Hope, the Cancer Patient Fund at Central Vermont Medical Center. You can pre-pay for parking passes here. Be sure to buy your passes early - parking fees increase to $25 on the day of the festival.

What's the difference between a parking pass and A Do Good Package?

Please check out our admission page to find more details about each kind of ticket.


Where can we park?

There are a few places to park.

We’ve got room for about 2,000 cars right here on the grounds. Parking passes are $20 in advance, and $25 on the day of the festival.

We’ll also be running an Express Shuttle from parking at Montpelier High School to the Do Good Fest site. The shuttle will run on a regular schedule to and from the festival grounds starting at 2:30 PM. It’s still $20 for parking, but the shuttle is free.

Finally, purchase a Do Good package and you'll receive a parking spot that's only steps away from the festival.

What if I don’t have a car?

Not to worry. The grounds are also accessible via walking, bike or bus. We've got all sorts of travel information compiled here.


WHere Can I Get food or Drinks?

We've got over 15 food trucks and local restaurants who will be on site, serving up pizza, burgers, Greek food, and everything in between. We're also proud to partner with Three Penny Taproom, who will be serving beer exclusively provided by one of our sponsors, Harpoon Brewery! Of course, we've also got plenty of soda and water for those under 21. Find out more about our food vendors here.

How do I pay for Food?

All food/drink vendors are cash only. Attendees who purchase a Do Good Package will receive a $10 meal voucher that can be redeemed at any  vendor.

What happens if I need Medical Assistance?

Our number one priority is making sure Do Good Fest attendees have a safe experience. We have paramedics on site if you're having a medical emergency during the fest, and we also have first aid located at the information tent.
