Where are you located?

What does "some fees may apply" mean?
We provide vendor booths, food trucks, a bar (must be 21 years of age or older; an ID must be provided), and much more that all cost money. Admittance is - and always will be! - free, but purchasable goods, some celebrity services, and third party refreshments are not.
