To provide a safer environment for all guests, there will be entry points at the 2021 Jacksonville Jazz Festival. Entry points will be staffed with security team members that will facilitate a brief bag inspection. Guests without any bags at all may proceed through the entry point without stopping for expedited entry into the festival. There are no bag dimension limitations for entry, however, please note larger bags take longer to search and will cause delays so we ask that guests only bring what is necessary for their needs at the festival.
The following items are prohibited: Coolers, Tents, Grills, Alcohol, Non-Factory Sealed Drinks, Picnic and Catering Meals, Weapons (Knives, Guns, Explosives or any items that can be construed as a weapon other than permitted pursuant to Fla. Stat. §790.06), Illegal Substances of any kind, Roller Skates, Skateboards, Bicycles, Scooters, Projectiles including Balls and Frisbees, Noise Making Devices, Signs/Flags larger than 2’x3′, Drones or other Flying Objects, any other item deemed unacceptable by the City of Jacksonville
All guests and their belongings may be searched upon entry into the festival. By entering the event space, guests consent to such searches and waive any related claims that they may have against the City of Jacksonville or its partners. If guests elect not to consent to the searches, they will be denied entry into the festival.
There are no provisions to check items at the gates. Guests will be asked to either take prohibited items back to their vehicles, if they have not entered the event space, or dispose of prohibited items at the entry point. The City of Jacksonville as well as its members, officials, officers, employees and agents are not responsible for items left behind, lost, stolen, or damaged. Possession of prohibited items onsite is grounds for ejection from the festival.
