What credit cards/payment methods are accepted for purchasing tickets?

Tickets can be purchased at the Festival gate using cash or most major credit and debit cards. We are NOT able to accept American Express.

 

Is there an ATM on site?

There are no ATM facilities on site. Royal Bank of Scotland customers only can withdraw cash from the onsite Bank.

 

Can I bring my dog to the Festival?

No dogs, other than assistance dogs will be allowed into the Festival site. We do not advise that dogs are left unattended in vehicles for the wellbeing of the animal.

 

Is the Festival suitable for people with a disability/wheelchair?

The Festival site is relatively flat and is largely short mown grass, the site is therefore accessible for people with a wheelchair or limited mobility. Marquees are wheelchair accessible but are largely unfloored.

Due to the open nature of the site, if there have been periods of heavy rain in the run up to the Festival this can cause the terrain to become more difficult to navigate with a wheelchair. Disabled toilets are available on site. Disabled parking is available closer to the Festival entrance. Blue badges must be on display.

 

Can I hire a wheelchair at the Festival?

Manual wheelchairs are available from the Show Office at the Festival entrance. These are available free of charge on a first come, first served basis.

 

Can I travel to the Festival by public transport?

Yes. A special bus service Number 53 will run during the three days of the Festival. The bus will run between Dundee City Centre and the Festival entrance. Standard bus fares will apply.

Collection points are only a short walk from Dundee's main bus and railway stations.

A small amount of cycle parking is available at the Festival site.

Please see Dundee Travel Info for more information about bus, rail and cycle travel in Dundee.

 

How much does it cost to park at the Festival?

Car and motorcycle parking at the Festival is free of charge.

 

Can I leave and re-enter the Festival during the day?

Yes. Please ask the attendant on the Festival gate to stamp your hand on your way out.

 

What is there to do with children?

Dundee Flower and Food Festival is a must for younger visitors and families. We have a great range of activities and entertainment on offer throughout the Festival.

Our Woodlands-4-Yew and Children's Marquee has lots to see and do for children with interactive sessions and activities. Not forgetting our Entertainment stages, Food Festival and other marquees too. Children also love our Exhibition Marquee with giant vegetables and brightly coloured flowers on display and learning about bees and honey.

 

Where can I buy a programme?

Programmes are available for only £1.50 at the Festival gate, these offer full listings of the trade stands and the full entertainment programme. So keep an eye out for our friendly staff once you are through the entrance to buy your copy.

 

What is the best day to visit the Festival?

Festival entertainment is on a rolling programme throughout the three days of the Festival and all trade stands and exhibits will be on display for all three days of the Festival. You will never be short of things to see or do during your visit.

Friday is generally considered to be less busy and is traditionally our 'schools day', where local schools will visit and the Dundee Schools Musical Showcase on the music stage. Saturday and Sunday tend to be the 'family days' and tend to be busier.

 

What happens to lost property?

Lost property should be handed in to the Show Office or Police at the Festival.

Valuables will be handed over to Police Scotland when the Festival closes. Other items will be kept by Dundee City Council for 6 months following the Festival before being destroyed or donated to charity where appropriate.
