Where can I purchase tickets?

You may purchase tickets by clicking the BUY TICKETS link at the top of every page. Also, tickets will be available at the event. 

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

We recommend that you bring your printed ticket with you because this is the fastest way to check you in.  If you forget your ticket, we can also check you in by name but this will take a little longer. 

Is my ticket transferable?

Yes, you may transfer your ticket to someone else but we will be scanning tickets at the entrance and each ticket may only be used once. 

What is the refund policy?

We do not offer refunds.  However, you are free to give or sell your unused ticket to a friend.  

Does JUTS benefit any non-profits?

All profits go to the Glenelg Marching Unit Boosters, a tax-exempt non-profit organization whose sole purpose is to provide artistic and musical opportunity for the members of the Marching Unit at Glenelg High School. 

The Marching Unit includes the Symphonic Band, the Color Guard, the Dance Team and the Jazz Ensemble. 



Can I bring my own food?

Absolutely, but don't miss out on our fantastic food trucks! You're welcome to bring your own food and beverages to the event. However, alcoholic beverages, including wine and spirits are strictly prohibited.  

Will there be food available at JUTS?

We will have several food trucks at JUTS. You can purchase a variety of food and drink items directly from them.

Can I cook on the grounds of the event?

No. Cooking (gas grills, charcoal grills, hibachi grills, fondue fountains, open flames, etc.) on the grounds is strictly prohibited. 



What about my young kids. Are they welcome?

Yes, they are welcome.  Kids 5 and under are free. Plus we will have a Family Fun Hospitality tent with fun activities for kids. 

Do I have to pay admission for my children?

Children 5 and under, current Marching Unit members, and JUTS performers will be admitted free. Everyone else needs a ticket for entry.  

Is the festival accessible for patrons with mobility devices?

This year -- 2019 --  we will be at Howard County Fairgrounds.

Our primary venue is the pasture at Chapel View Farm where the grounds are rolling and grassy.  We provide golf carts for any patron who wants or needs a ride. The golf carts are available throughout the event so rides are available to and from the cars, the food, the seating, and the bathrooms for patrons who need them.

If it rains, we will move indoors at the Howard County Fairgrounds. The ground is relatively flat and smooth. We will not have the golf carts at the fairgrounds; however, handicapped parking will be available.

Can I bring my pets to the festival?

 No. However, registered service animals are welcome.
