The Higher Ground Fair staff is committed to providing an inclusive environment for fairgoers with mobility challenges.
Parking: We provide a limited number of accessible parking spots. Please be advised that these spots may fill up quickly. Staff will additionally provide a shuttle service from the parking lot to the fairgrounds.
Wheelchairs: There will be several accessible facilities available at the Territorial Prison. Specific locations will be available for viewing on the map of the fair.
Assistance: Please note, we do not have wheelchairs available for individual fairgoer use. Staff and volunteer members are available and will use golf carts for ease of transporting fairgoers as needed. While advance notice is not necessary, it is appreciated.
Grounds and Walkways: The Territorial Prison Grounds are expansive. Getting from point A to point B can take some time, especially when there are lots of people walking along with you. Most, but not all, of the walkways are paved. There are areas of the fair accessible by both stairs and elevator, with elevators marked on the fair map. It's a good idea to look at the fair map when planning your schedule for the day.
Service Animals: Service animals necessary for an individual's ability to attend the fair are welcome. Under the Americans with Disabilities act, If the dog’s mere presence provides comfort, it is not a service animal under the ADA. But if the dog is trained to perform a task related to a person’s disability, it is a service animal under the ADA. To help fair staff, we ask that all service animals be clearly identifiable as service animals. Because of the large number of animals active in the fair's implementation, service animals in training, companion dogs, emotional support animals, and other pets are not permitted at the Higher Ground Fair.
