Heck yeah! Bring the whole family and your friends; you can even bring grandma. The AOA Expo will have bouncy castles, mascots, candy, games, and fun for all ages.
Although, we wouldn’t recommend your grandma use the bouncy castle.
Yes! Your furry friends are welcome at the Fall Expo, just make sure they’re always kept on leash while away from your primary campsite. There will be horses and other animals joining us for the weekend, so it’s important to keep your dogs on leash for their safety.
Yes, but the consumption of alcohol is permitted only within campsites and in the beer gardens. No alcohol is to be brought on the roads, or within the vendor area.
We’ll have covered areas around the venue, including a covered dance hall and grandstand. We recommend packing an umbrella or your favourite rain jacket just in case!
Because the grounds are so massive, we recommend bringing comfortable footwear to walk on gravel, rocks, and grass.
Vendors and guests will receive 100% of their money back.
Unfortunately, motorised vehicles of any kind are not permitted on the grounds. You can bring a bicycle to get around if you’d like. If you require a mobility scooter, please contact our team so we can help you fully enjoy your weekend.
If you lose something, come check our Information Booth to see if it’s been turned in. We recommend keeping all your valuables in a safe place as AOA is not liable for any lost, stolen, or damaged property during your time at the event.
The speed limit is 10 km/hr (crawl speed) as there will be adults and
children walking around the grounds.
You can fish at the trout ponds and in the McLeod River as long as you have a valid fishing licence. Keep what you catch, or release your catch if you’re feeling merciful!
Beginner and advanced trail rides to Brule have been planned. Waivers will be required prior to participating.
The beginner run is expected to be 4 - 5 hours. The advanced run is expected to be 6 hours.
AOA accepts cash and card, but vendors will each have their own means of taking payment. There are no ATMs on site.
You’ll have access to potable water and bathroom facilities. There is no power or WiFi, but there is good reception in most areas. There is some firewood around the grounds, but we recommend bringing your own.
We also have food trucks attending the event. We recommend packing food, as well, when the food trucks are closed or very busy.
A full weekend pass allows you access to the grounds from Friday after 5:00 PM to Sunday night, but you don’t have to leave until Monday morning. You can arrive on Friday to set-up early, but there will not be any events.
You’ll get access to all vendors and scheduled activities throughout the weekend and you’ll be entered in all AOA Expo giveaways (make sure you’re present to receive it)!
A day pass is needed for each person who would like to attend the event on Saturday or Sunday. It will give you access to all the vendors and scheduled activities planned throughout the day from 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM.
You’ll be greeted at the entrance to the grounds by security. Make sure you have your confirmation email or ticket ready to be scanned. From there, you’ll be guided toward your camping area of choice or the day parking area.
Propane fire pits are an alternative option and will be used for the group bonfire if a fire ban is in effect.
The quiet hours are 1:00 AM - 7:00 AM, and security will be around to ensure all fires are put out by 2:00 AM.
You can camp in the forest, lake, or open land areas! Check out our maps to see where each area is located.
We’ll be happy to refund you 100% of your ticket price if you request a refund before August 18, 2023 at 11:59PM. If you request a refund after this date, don’t worry, you will receive a credit to use towards future AOA events!
No, but most service providers have good data reception within the area!
