The Patriotic Festival has listened to recommendations from our fans and taken action by implementing improved services for the 2020 festival. These improvements include: the addition of two new Crowd Management Security Companies; a Director of Security; an Emergency Services Director; a Ticket Operations Manager to develop easier & faster fan access to each ticketed zone; Signage to direct fans to their specific ticket access locations; and an upgraded ADA section.

We look forward to implementing these changes for the 2020 festival to ensure our patrons and fans have a safe and enjoyable time at the 2020 Atlantic Union Bank Patriotic Festival. Thank you.
