We and the City of Jeffersonville safety forces place your security first and foremost. We secure all the perimeter streets around the venue, fence the outdoor site so no un-authorized vehicles can enter it, check every bag and all attendees when they enter, enforce a no weapon and no carry policy, and train our staff how to quickly contact trained safety and emergency response personnel.
The second rule of Abbey Road On The River: Have fun, leave the planning to us. We will solve your problems and answer all of your questions and make you happy when you show-up. We mean it!
