Accessibility

Our goal is to make the festival fully accessible to all visitors. To that end, the accommodations below will be provided. If additional accommodations would be helpful in making your visit to the festival comfortable, enjoyable, and fun, please contact us at info@gamountainstoryfest.org. We'll be glad to assist.  

The festival's venue--the Union County Schools Fine Arts Center--is a physically accessible building with the following features:

  • ground-level/no-step entry
  • access to project facilities and outdoor spaces (it is all one level, with no ramps needed except for the ramp from the handicap parking area to the building)
  • integrated and dispersed wheelchair seating in assembly areas
  • wheelchair-accessible box office, stage/backstage, meeting, and dressing rooms
  • wheelchair-accessible display cases, exhibit areas, and counters
  • accessible studio, classroom, and work spaces
  • wheelchair-accessible restrooms and water fountains
  • directional signage for accessible entrances, restrooms, and other facilities

Additionally, for visually impaired visitors, large-print and Braille copies of the event program will be available at the registration table at the festival. If you or your group may need multiple copies in either of these formats, please let us know ahead of time via info@gamountainstoryfest.org so that we can be sure too have enough copies on hand. 

For hearing impaired visitors, a sign language interpreter will be on stage during sessions denoted in the program to sign stories presented by the storytellers. 

Docents will be available to guide visitors through the quilt display and offer audio descriptions of the quilts as needed. The display provides tactile opportunities for visitors to feel different types of fabric and stitching.
