1. Be eco-friendly
Osheaga is all about reducing, reusing and recycling. With various sustainability programs, Osheaga strives to create a festival environment that positively impacts the community. Please bring your green-friendly self.
2. Check out the activities
Between running from stage to stage, be sure to check out some of the off-stage fun the festival offers. The infamous Play Zone is all about games, rides, beer gardens, and photobooths (which can also make for some great photobombs). If you’re looking to catch a quick break, grab a hammock and hang out in the Wi-Fi Chill Zone.
3. Bring the kids
Don’t want to hire a babysitter? No problem. Kids 10 and under are admitted for FREE.
4. Bike to the festival
Biking is encouraged. It’s practical and eco-friendly. And not to worry, you can roll on into The Terminus, the festival’s secure and dedicated bicycle lot, and keep your bike here for the duration of the festival.
5. Eat the food
It’s all about the music, but food comes in a very close second place. Osheaga offers a variety of good quality food for all to enjoy. Plenty of food trucks with a variety of choices including mouthwatering vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options, will leave you wondering what to eat first.
6. Be respectful
Welcome your fellow festival goers, be polite to the festival staff, recycle your wastes, and respect Parc Jean-Drapeau. And please don’t touch the art, these masterpieces have been tastefully crafted for your viewing pleasure.
