If you are coming East from the Fall River area:  Get on 195 East and travel to the Reed Road Exit 11 towards Dartmouth/Hixville. Follow Reed Rd to Old Fall River Rd, Running Brook Vineyards will be on your left hand side- you'll see the big tents!

If you are coming West from Fairhaven area: Get on 195 West and travel to Faunce Corner Road, exit 12B. Travel down Faunce Corner Road, past the Hawthorn Medical facility and take a left onto Old Fall River Road.

Parking:  Parking is in an open field and we will have attendants helping to get your parked to ensure there isn't too little or too much space between the rows of cars. The ground can be uneven in places so please walk cautiously.   Pig Pass Holders will be directed towards the top of the parking lot so be sure to tell the folks at the gate that you have tickets for both events that day

Gates: Gates open for the BBQ at 2pm. Food vendors will be in place or putting the final touches on things and will be ready for you when you come in. As a reminder, you may bring chairs if you'd like and we have additional chairs and tables also set up. No outside food or drink is permitted and we reserve the right to check bags. The area will be cleared out at 6pm promptly. Do not feel pressured to get there right at 2, we've ordered plenty of food and beer for the day!

Tickets: Prior to us taking your ticket, we will ask to see ID and give you a bracelet if you are over 21 (whether you are drinking or not). Pig Pass holders will get 2 bracelets to let staff know that you will remain on site once the BBQ ends.  In exchange for your ticket you will receive your food vouchers for the day.  If someone wants to come to the event but does NOT have a ticket, there is an entrance fee of $10 (cash only) and with proper ID, they can still buy drinks and food food trucks who are selling that day.

ATM:  There is NO ATM on site. Cash will be accepted at the gate and in the beer/wine area. Non-alcoholic beverages will be available as well. The nearest ATM (we believe) is back near the Dartmouth Mall.
