  • NO OUTSIDE ALCOHOL IS ALLOWED IN THE PARK. Personal bags and coolers are screened at the entrance gate. We will ask that you dispose of all outside alcohol or return it to your car before entering the park. 
  • No alcohol is allowed to leave the enclosed area of Whistle Stop Park. No alcohol is allowed to cross-over the road to the Children's Park.  All alcohol must be disposed of before leaving the enclosed area of Whistle Stop Park. 
  • Well-behaved dogs on leashes are allowed at Rock & Rails, but the organizers reserve the right to ask any dog to leave at any time. Make good choices for your canine friend; Rock & Rails is loud and crowded and is not the best choice for every dog. 
  • A variety of food trucks and local beer vendors serve Rock & Rails patrons so bring cash for easy purchasing.
  • Portable chairs and blankets are allowed. Please be kind and respectful to your neighbors and to the Park with your choices.
