    Grettings – this message is for Joyce or Rose, whomever modifies the webpage info-

    Kat Wright here of The Indomitable Soul Band!
    Was just hoping you could change 2 quick things on the summervale line up web page

    1. I was hoping that the link for my band could go to instead of to our facebook page

    2. Whenever Duino Duende is listed as a quest food vendor, we would be so grateful if the link could go to

    Let me know if this is possible! Thanks so much,
    Kat Wright

      Hi Kat,

      We’ll make the changes. Thanks for letting us know!

    Are dogs welcome at Summervale?

      Hi, Margaret! Thanks for asking. We have a “no pets” rule (except for service animals wearing signifying attire) at Summervale in order to keep our event safe and welcoming for everyone. Here’s a link to our handy list of what to bring to Summervale (and what to keep at home).
