Is there handicap parking?
Bloom is a special sight that everyone should be able to enjoy! So, we provide handicap parking in the front of our parking lot. The spots are marked with the handicap decal. Please see below for information on wheelchair accessibility in the field.
Is Bloom stroller or wheelchair accessible?
We want Bloom to be accessible to everyone, but with our event being on a farm unfortunately there are some cases where guests won’t be able to safely access our field.
Most strollers can get around our grounds comfortably. People with strollers designed for trails / off-road will have the best experience, although most regular full sizes strollers are ok too. Here are the exceptions: Umbrella type mini strollers with the thin, small wheels. Parents with multiple strollers will have a difficult time, both hands will be needed to maneuver around the field.
Wheelchairs with wider or pneumatic tires, and an attendant to help get around with a moderate amount of effort. Wheelchair exceptions: Heavier wheelchairs (ie: specialty electric wheelchairs), or those with thin wheels will have a difficult time in our field. Wheelchairs without an attendant are not recommended as you will need help in certain areas.
What is Family Friday?
Only on Fridays, all members of your family share the children rate of $10.00 each.
What is included in the Farmstrong X Bloom Special?
We have partnered up with Farmstrong Cider Company, just down the road from us, to create a package that is only available on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. This package includes general admission for two adults (between 11:00am and 6:00pm) to our festival and a u-pick bucket. Then, you can head on over to Farmstrong and enjoy 2 pizzas and 2 ciders.
