ADA Access

ADA ACCESSIBILITY
We make our best efforts to make Oregon Eclipse an accessible event, and we are dedicated to continually improving our efforts to ensure you have access to festival amenities. We welcome and encourage all feedback and suggestions from our patrons. The following explains our services provided this year. For any accessibility-related questions and/or needs please email us at ada@symbiosisgathering.com and we will do our best to help you have an awesome experience at Oregon Eclipse!

Wheelchair Accessibility
The venue is extremely rugged and sprawling. We are making best efforts to provide accessible pathways connected throughout the venue including parking, camping, entrances, stages, vendors and all other activity areas.

Parking/Camping
Parking and reserved camping will be available for patrons with valid handicap placards, plates and/or permits, as well as the applicable proof that it belongs to them. The ADA campground is accessible and near the event grounds entrance. If you are bringing a vehicle onsite, you’ll need to purchase a vehicle pass.

Access Center
All accessibility-related inquires can be answered at our Access Center, which will be located inside the ADA campground. Additionally this is the location to recharge wheelchair batteries and/or the other assistive technology requiring electrical recharging, as well as storing equipment.

Getting Around
There are some accessible pathways and routes throughout the venue. We encourage all patrons to utilize personal forms of transportation, including wheelchairs and scooters. If you need to recharge your motorized wheelchair, you may do so at the Access Center. Patrons should bring all cords and accessories needed to charge their devices. Chargers must use a 110-volt, 20 amp circuit. We will not be providing wheelchair or scooter rentals.

Shuttle transportation will be provided from the campground to the event area for those needing extra assistance. These shuttles will run on a first come, first served basis and may include significant wait times. Please plan accordingly and bring any mobility devices that would assist you in enjoying the weekend with us in addition to the services we have available.

SERVICE ANIMALS
Persons with disabilities and their service dogs or miniature horses that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for those persons with disabilities are welcome at Oregon Eclipse, as are those training service animals. Pets are not allowed and will be turned away. Due to large scale animal service fraud, and for the protection of all festival patrons, service animals must be screened and registered at the Access Center immediately upon entry to the site. Please contact ada@symbiosisgathering.com for protocols regarding service animals.

Any service animal whose task is to provide protection, emotional support, well-being, comfort, or companionship, is not considered a service animal and will not be allowed into the venue. All service animals must remain by the handler’s side at all times and must be harnessed, leashed, or tethered, unless these devices interfere with the service animal’s work or the individual’s disability prevents using these devices. In that case, the individual must maintain control of the animal through voice, signal, or other effective controls.

Service animals must be housebroken and should use the service animal relief area. Anyone bringing an animal will be responsible for and liable for any damage or injury caused by the animal.

Effective Communication Requests
If you require effective communication in the form of an ASL Interpreter or closed captioning, please contact us at ada@symbiosisgathering.com.

NOTE: Requests must be made no later than three months before the event to allow for sufficient processing time.

Additional Services
● ATM’s and Concessions are accessible and located throughout the venue. If assistance is required please confer with a festival staff member.

● First Aid: We have several First Aid locations that are noted on the festival maps. Professional medical staff can help you with your medical needs at these locations.

● Special Dietary Needs: Symbiosis will have food vendors that provide gluten-free dietary options. For those with special dietary needs beyond the festival food service, please contact us at ada@symbiosisgathering.com for further information.
