Winterfest wristbands

Bring your 21+ ID and ticket to pre-banding.

Everyone in your party who would like to be pre-banded must be present: Wristbands may not be picked up for those who are not present.

A lot of people may show up for pre-banding, so grab a beer, chat with your fellow fest-goers while you wait, and grab a bite ot eat.
