Late Seating  Sometimes events conspire to make you late. We will do our best to get you into your seats at the earliest appropriate break in the program without disturbing others. Late seating placement is at the discretion of management.

Weather  All performances take place rain or shine. In the event that a performance needs to be moved due to inclement weather, we will do our best to ensure comparable seating in the respective venue.

Service Animals & Pets  Certified service animals to assist the disabled are always welcome at Caramoor. For the preservation of our grounds and safety to other visitors, non-certified service dogs and other pets are not allowed at Caramoor.

Children Our grounds are kid-friendly and we have family-friendly concerts and events throughout the year. We ask that parents remain mindful of their children during concerts and events. If you bring a child to a concert and he/she creates a disturbance or interferes with anyone’s enjoyment of the performance, you and the child will kindly be asked to watch the remainder of the performance from the back of the venue. If you have concerns or questions regarding a concert’s content and parental guidance, please contact info@caramoor.org. All children, regardless of age, must be ticketed.

Only drinks with a sealed cover are allowed inside our performance venues including the Venetian Theater and Spanish Courtyard. Caramoor cups with sealed lids can be purchased in the Food + Drink area.

This rule does not apply to open-air performances on Friends Field or other open areas on the grounds.
