We are always looking for ways to minimize our impact and so this year we are offering a digital schedule and program guide. The majority of the venues/stages are conveniently located within walking distance of each other, and bicycles and mass transit options are encouraged. The participating venues, FoCoMA and the City of Fort Collins support recycling and we encourage you to pitch in!
