Access cards are mandatory for admission to the Gold and Silver Front-Stage Zones, Bell Signature Zone and VIP section for all spectators, regardless of age.

For the safety and wellbeing of all festivalgoers, the Festival recommends that parents with small children exercise judgement concerning the kind of show presented and the density of the crowd expected on the site before deciding to bring their children. To make it easier for families with strollers to enter the Plains of Abraham, they are asked to use the paved area leading up the hill near the Citadel.

For security considerations, the FEIQ could decide for specific shows :
o Pass required regardless of the age and/or;
o limit access of one child per adult and/or;
o ban strollers;

To find out if this rule applies to the show you want to attend, consult the artist's page.. Strollers can be left in the checkroom at the entrance. Fee $5.00.

The Festival also has a program of free family events at Family place sponsored by Lait.
