postheadericon The ID & minor registration requirements have been simplified!

Lots of folks that are older than 13, but not yet in possession of a photo ID have asked about attending the event.  Also, these folks have also wanted to know if they can attend the event without a parent.  After consideration, we’ve decided to allow attendees aged 13 and older to attend without a parent, but with proof of identity and age.  Please read below on these changes:

All attendees must be over 13 years of age or older, unless accompanied by a parent or guardian.  All attendees age 13 or older must provide proof of identity and age, as listed below.  Attendees unable to provide proof of age and identity that are not accompanied by a parent will be refused admittance.  Attendees under the age of 13 may attend free, but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

All attendees that would like to consume alcohol provided by themselves or others, must be 21 years of age, and have a valid federal, state, military, or government issued photo ID. Examples include drivers license, passport, or state photo ID card.

All attendees aged 13 and older must provide at least one form of photo ID with age, issued by a school or government organization. If a photo ID is not available, we ask that 2 forms of identification be provided. In this case, the ID document that shows age must be issued by a school or government organization, the second ID document only needs to verify identity or name. Birth certificates, credit cards, library cards, student ID, work ID, voter registration cards, and non-photo ID will be accepted. To prevent risk of identity theft, please do not use your Social Security card.

Please contact info@furrypicnic.com for questions on acceptable documents not mentioned, or any other registration questions.

postheadericon 2019 Hotel Info announced! Hyatt House – Windsor, CT

Apologies for the delay, as we were trying to negotiate hotel rates.  Unfortunately, due to our size, we could not secure a discounted rate for 2019.  Based on the feedback of our attendees, we’ve decided to step away from the Holiday Inn East Hartford suggested for 2018, and go back to recommending the Hyatt House in Windsor, CT.  We understand the rate isn’t perfect, but we’ve shopped the local offerings, and we’re still inclined to say they offer the best overall deal and quality when shared among others.  The food, staff, room size, and amenities recent renovations to their hot tub and pool really make it a better choice when compared to other area other hotels with smaller rooms, and less amenities.

Thank you for your patience, and see you at the Furry Picnic!
