Hey, I'm a VIP! What does that mean?

We're excited to have everyone at Frebella Fest. For those of you that gave a little extra for the VIP experience. Here's what was in store!

  • Frebella Fest Ofiicial T-Shirt & Swag

  • 2 Free Drink Tickets

  • Voucher for a free meal from one of our amazing food trucks!

  • Free VIP parking right next to the entrance. No long walks or shuttle rides required (although the shuttles will be cool too)

Food trucks you say? What kinda grub are we talking about?!

We had amazing food truck vendors who had something delicious for every kind fo appetite.

There was also beer and other tasty beverages available!

How About Parking?

There is on street parking near Lions Park, but if you wanted to gaurantee a good place without any hassle, we ran TWO shuttle buses from the nearby Victoria Recreation Center at 8475 Kochia Ln, Victoria, MN 55386. The rec center is only 1 mile away and busses ran continuously throughout the event starting at 10:30am.


What can I bring with me to the big show?

  • Chairs & Blankets - YES. Make yourselves comfy.

  • Back Packs - YES. No problem, but know that we want to keep people safe at Frebella Fest so we may ask to take a look inside.

  • Water Bottles - YES. Feel free to bring an empty water bottle you can fill up at the water fountain, but if you want to skip the line we'll have plenty of affordable water for sale at concessions! (Remember, all proceeds go to support The Emily Program Foundation)

  • Other snacks & beverages - NO. We’d like to keep the trash to a minimum and let’s be honest, we want to support the food and beverage partners that have dedicated their time and energy to Frebella Fest. There will be lots of food and beverage options for all taste buds.

  • Dogs - NO. Sorry, but you gotta leave your pets at home. Its too much of a liability to have them running around with the crowds. Also, not super excited about picking up poop on Sunday.

  • Smoking - NO, ideally, but… Frebella is a family friendly event, however if you do need to take a quick smoke break, please be respectful of the folks around you and respect their air.

    Thanks for your understanding. Can’t wait to see you at Frebella Fest!!
