WRISTBAND INFO

So, I’m not getting a ticket?

You will not receive a hard ticket.  Instead you’ll receive an RFID wristband that will act as your “ticket” to enter the Festival.  Be sure to wear this wristband at all times at Wonderfront Festival for proper event entry.

You will receive ONE wristband EACH ticket purchased. Each guest must have a wristband to attend.

What is RFID?

Radio Frequency Identification.  Instead of paper-based tickets, RFID is the latest technology that allows event entry at your fingertips… well okay, really at your wrist, but close enough!

 

What is the benefit of using RFID wristbands?

Wonderfront Festival goers will benefit from a streamlined and enhanced experience with the RFID wristband.  With a simple scan of the wrist, it makes for speedier entry, and unique registration for a better customer service experience; both of which allows you to spend less time in line, and more time enjoying the Festival!

 

 Can I get my RFID wristband wet?

Wristbands are waterproof and will withstand any showers, hand washing, or swimming pools.

 

 Can I take my wristband off in between days?

No please.  Wristbands are non-transferrable and valid for entry for the day(s) indicated on the wristband.  Do not remove your wristband until you plan to leave the property for the final time.  

 

 Can I mess with my wristband?

No . . . Do not cut the loose end of the wristband or affect the wristband in any way!  Any wristband that has been tampered is VOID and could be confiscated.  Treat your wristband like cash – lost, stolen, counterfeit, tampered with, unregistered, and/or confiscated wristbands may not be replaced!  Note there is a replacement fee of $20 per wristband should the Festival staff warrant a replacement is necessary.

 

Can I go on one day and pass my wristband off to someone else for another day?

Negative Ghost Rider. Wristbands are non-transferrable and intended for only ONE guest to attend the festival the entire weekend.

 

What happens if my wristband or ticket is damaged or I lose it?

Once your wristband is on your wrist securely, it will be tough to lose it unless it is cut off or not put on right in the first place.  But if it were to be lost somehow, first, don’t panic – we can help! Just visit our friendly Festival staff at the Ticket Help / Customer Service area at the Box Office for assistance.

 

If someone finds your original wristband or ticket don’t worry!  With the RFID technology, we can make sure that no one else can use it or access your personal info.  

 

 I’m scared.

It’s cool!  If you have any trouble putting on or scanning your wristband, just visit our friendly Festival staff for assistance at the entrance.

We can gladly assist you with Wristband Registration at the Box Office or at the Wristband Registration station on site as well.

 

Is The Man watching my every move with this RFID wristband?

Nah!  He’ll just know you’re having a ball with us at Wonderfront Festival, and that’s all that matters!

 

Will Wonderfront Festival have Cashless payment options?

No, however all vendors will accept cash, credit, and smartphone app payments (applepay, google pay, android pay, etc) for your convenience.

 

My wristband is failing to scan.

If the wristband is scanning RED or not scanning at all at the venue gates, please visit Wristband Resolution or the Box Office for proper assistance.

 

What are the Wristband Policies?

All sales are FINAL – no refunds and no exchanges.

 Wristbands must be worn at all times and scanned upon entry/exit to the venue.

Do not remove between days or tamper with your wristband in any way.

 Wristbands must be worn securely on your wrist and are non-transferrable.

 Depending on the circumstance, a replacement wristband may be issued for a $20 fee at the discretion of Festival staff.

 If your wristband is removed by Festival Security / Staff due to misuse or your misconduct, your wristband will not be replaced, and festival ejection or prosecution may also occur.

All guests are subject to a bag, and personal security inspection upon entry. Any prohibited items will be confiscated.

I received my wristband(s) from Wonderfront Festival, now what?

Awesome!  This wristband is your ticket into the festival! Handle your wristband carefully to assure you don’t pull it closed before you put it on and keep it in a safe place.

 

Does it matter which arm?

Scanners are typically on the right as you enter/exit the festival grounds, so we encourage placing the wristband securely on your right wrist for ease and convenience.

 

Should I put my wristband on now?

Not yet!  When you’re ready to attend Wonderfront, place the wristband on your RIGHT wrist and slide the clasp up to where only one finger can fit between the band and your wrist.  Tug on the band slightly to assure it is fastened and cannot slide off but is still comfy.

Careful! Once you pull your wristband closed, it will not loosen.

 

Ummmmm, I got excited and put it on, pulled it closed, threw it away…

Ooops! Hang on to your original wristband and visit the Box Office or a Wristband Resolution station at the Wonderfront Festival event for proper assistance.

After some account verification, a replacement wristband may be possible for a $20 fee.

Only the original purchaser or verified wristband registrant can receive a replacement.
