DESCRIPTION OF SITE
We want you to be properly informed about the nature of the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, so we are providing the following information about the grounds.
Traveling around Boots and Hearts can be challenging. Boots and Hearts is an outdoor music festival on a 750-acre racing facility. There are hills and rugged terrain that is grassy and bumpy and can be difficult to traverse.
There are many paved or gravel walkways through the main areas, a good portion of the area of travel will be over grass. In the event of rain, the ground may become muddy. Due to the size of the venue, Boots and Hearts is not able to provide pathways to all activities.
We have provided accessible camping spaces as close to the main stage as possible. Those campsites are approximately a 1/2 KM from the main stage.
RECHARGING MEDICAL DEVICES
Because of the nature of temporary events, Boots and Hearts does not guarantee availability of electricity. Patrons leave their batteries at their own risk. We recommend using your cigarette lighter and car battery to recharge your medical devices.
A person bringing a syringe will need to show medication in prescription packaging with name on the label, and photo ID.
MEDICAL WASTE DISPOSAL
Please dispose of your medical waste and sharps in the proper disposal at one of our medical tents. Consult your festival guide for locations. Please do not dispose of these things in the trash barrels. We appreciate your consideration for our volunteers and staff who handle the trash bags.
