These restaurants, cafés, and stores are all within 45 minutes of our venue by car. For those who are staying at a camp ground, cabin, or efficiency unit, we have included general stores—local places where you can pick up basic staples and other items—and local full-service grocery stores.

Check for hours of operation before you make your plans. This is the shoulder season, and hours become shorter.

Don’t forget that, if you are attending Saturday Sessions, lunch is provided as a part of your ticket price. As well, Sunday passes include brunch at noon, and our opening gala always offers nibbles. This year, we also offer supper on Saturday night.
