Can I bring my own refreshments?
Outside food and drinks are not allowed, unless specifically noted. Fogartyville will have beer, wine and nonalcoholic beverages for sale during events.
Can I order food during the performance?
We recommend you arrive early if you are planning on dining so that you can visit the Kumquat Kitchen and get your food before the show starts. Doors open one hour before the show starts and the food truck begins serving when doors open. The Kitchen is open until the start of the second set.
Is seating general admission?
No, seats are reserved for most ticketed events.
Here is our current seating chart:
What is a listening room?
Fogartyville Community Media and Arts Center is a listening room and while the performers love the audience to applaud, laugh and occasionally sing along, conversation during the show distracts other listeners and is disrespectful to the songwriters who form the backbone of our music community.
We encourage talking before the show, between sets and after the show but ask that during the performances, audience members refrain from conversation.
What’s the story of your venue?
Can I bring my camera to the show?
Our camera policy varies depending on the artist. Unless you’ve received prior artist and venue approval, absolutely no professional cameras, detachable lenses or flash.
Are you a nonsmoking venue?
Yes, and this includes vaping. There are however safe, well-lit areas outside the building for smokers.
For shows when the patio seating is being utilized, smoking is not allowed on the patio.
What’s it like inside Fogartyville?
