  • Special Event FAQs
  • Special Event FAQs

    Who do I need to purchase a ticket for?
    Everyone ages 1 and up who is attending an event will need a ticket. This information is included in the event details online and on Facebook events listings.

    What happens if there is inclement weather on the day of an event?
    Blackberry Farm is open rain or shine. We do everything in our power to stage every special event. This may require postponing or relocating to an indoor facility. If there is lightning in the area, the park will close operations until it is safe to be outdoors, which is indicated by our lightning detection service – or 30 minutes after the last observed lightning strike.

    Occasionally, if the weather is deemed too severe for the event to proceed, Blackberry may reschedule the event for another day.

    Watch the Blackberry Farm Facebook page for updates when the weather is questionable. Cancellation or postponement of events will be posted as soon as possible or at least 2 hours ahead of the scheduled time of the event.  

    Are special event tickets refundable?
    All ticket sales are final, refunds and ticket transfers are not available after purchase. Blackberry Farm is open rain or shine and guests are encouraged to dress for the weather. If Blackberry Farm reschedules an event and a ticket holder is unable to attend the rescheduled date, a full refund will be issued. If Blackberry Farm cancels an event ticket holders will be issued a full refund. Ticket holders must provide proof of purchase to receive a refund.

    How should I dress for my event?
    Blackberry Farm is an outdoor facility, so always be sure to dress for the weather. We suggest always packing heavier coats in your car just in case the weather becomes chilly. Blackberry is subject to windy conditions due to the park’s open terrain. If you’re attending a character event, many children dress as their favorite character for pictures.

    The event is sold out – can I just get two more tickets…please?
    Unfortunately, once an event is sold out we cannot add more tickets. We want to ensure our guests have a great experience at every event, and staying within the specified ticket limit for the event is an importance aspect to that. Many times, if guests are unable to attend an event, they post in the Facebook event listing to sell the tickets they will not use. Blackberry Farm does not facilitate third-party ticket transactions.
