Frequently Asked Questions–Virtual Field Trips

What ages/grades are best for this Festival?

Anyone from Kindergarten to senior citizens will enjoy this Festival.  The materials shared are family-friendly. There will be a couple performances or academic sessions best for teens and adults though technically ages 10+ would still enjoy and understand them.

What do you mean by the price “per person/household”?

Virtual changes everything in ticketing including always thinking that a registrant connects with a household. Thus, you have a household price. Any students or teachers who take part in the $25/class rate have the added benefit of each person having access as an individual and as a household. We ask that anyone beyond that register separately.

What is the platform being used for your virtual field trip and for how long will it be available to view?

We used our YouTube Channel as an unlisted playlist with the link given only to registrants or main contact(s) for virtual field trips. If you are unable to watch during the scheduled times, you can return to the unlisted YouTube link and view from May 11-June 15, 2022.
