Frequently Asked Questions
Why is there not more information/acknowledgement of the history of the St. Ann’s School site in your website/promotional materials?
There is a clause in our contract with the venue preventing us from making any statements regarding the history of St. Ann’s School without the Providence Farm Board’s approval. We have been unable to come up with a statement that reflects our consulting elders’ experiences with the school and with the Sisters of St. Ann that the Providence Farm Board will approve. We encourage people who have questions or comments regarding our failure to address the history of the St Ann’s School site to contact us and contact Providence Farm at firstname.lastname@example.org directly with your concerns. We apologize for not providing a better trigger warning when inviting people to this site of a former Catholic boarding school.
Can I buy tickets at the gate?
Yes, you can buy tickets at the gate, but to reduce stress on our box office, and give us a better idea of numbers, please buy tickets online before arriving! The venue has a limited capacity for camping and total participants, so be sure to get your tickets in advance!
