Does my general admission ticket or VIP get me into the music concert too?

Yes! The ticket gets you in the door to enjoy unlimited tastings until 4pm and the entire sprawling site to enjoy the music stage as well.

How and when can I buy Designated Driver Tickets?

Designated Driver tickets can only be bought at the door the day of the event while entering with the people/person they will be driving. Those tickets are $45 and the DD must be with people who bought DRIFTWOOD admission tickets (GA or VIP, doesn't matter). If your friends have VIP and you are the DD and want to be with them in the VIP lounge, you will need to buy a VIP pass...the $45 ticket only gets you into the festival it does not get you into the VIP. You will NOT be allowed to participate in the complimentary tasting portion of the festival.

We will be bringing a Designated Driver for our group of VIP attendees. Which Designated Driver pass do we buy for them?

We only have one type of Designated Driver pass which must be purchased at the door while entering with the people/person they will be driving. Designated Drivers may enter the festival at the same time the people they are accompanying go in. However if those they are driving have VIP passes to go into the VIP lounge, the Designated Driver will need to buy a VIP package to receive these perks. The $45 DD pass is just to gain entry into the festival only.

Is there a fee for parking?

Parking is extremely limited around the event site, in neighboring streets and close by parking lots. Please park on your own at your own discretion and be aware of all street signs. You will NOT be allowed to park for the festival in the Harbor. We strongly encourage you to take ride sharing like LYFT or take the DRIFTWOOD shuttle.

If I take LYFT or a taxi, where do I get dropped off and picked up?

The Dana Point Community Center is your ride share lot. You will get dropped off there and picked up from there. It is a simple, 10 minute walk from the event site.

Is there a shuttle service to and from the event so we don't have to drive?

Yes! The Dana Hills High School shuttle tickets are for sale and are $10 per person, round trip. There is free park and ride from Dana Hills High School and the DRIFTWOOD shuttle will drop you off at the doorstep of the festival and take you back to you car whenever you are ready to go home! The shuttle will start at 11:30am, running on loop throughout the afternoon. It will make it's last departure at 10pm from the front gates of DRIFTWOOD.

If you purchased a MILITARY EARLY ENTRY ADMISSION ticket, you have a complimentary shuttle pass from the Dana Hills High School. The park and ride/pick up location is at Dana Hills High School. You will need your current military ID to ride the complimentary Military shuttle. Show the shuttle staff your MILITARY EARLY ENTRY ADMISSION ticket and valid military ID and you can get on the shuttle for free.

If I am active or retired military do I get to ride the shuttle for free?

Complimentary military shuttle passes are for those that purchased the MILITARY EARLY ENTRY ADMISSION ticket. If you purchased any other ticket (2 pack, 4 pack, VIP, Early Entry, General Admission or Groupon) you will need to purchase a shuttle pass for $10 round trip to get on the shuttle.

For VIP and EARLY ENTRY General Admission what time can we enter? I have seen 11am and noon?

Sorry for the confusion! Pre-entry will begin for VIP (through the VIP entrance) and EARLY ENTRY FESTIVAL General Admission (though the front main gates) starting at 11am. This is so that an NOON when you can start to enjoy the tastings we will have gotten a lot of people through the door and we are not cutting into your tasting time!

The actual complimentary tastings for VIP + Early Entry ticket holders will start at NOON but if you want to get in the door early and be first in the tastings lines, we can start processing at 11am.

General admission ticket holders can start coming in the festival from the front main gates starting at 1pm and they can start tasting at 1pm as well!

Complimentary tastings will last until 4pm and we will have lots for everybody!
