About the Festival


Accessibility symbols

The Re:New Festival is committed to making its programs accessible whenever possible, recognizing that each person is an individual and that each individual benefits from accommodations uniquely suited to their abilities.

Accommodation descriptions for each event are tailored to the venue and will be as clear and detailed as possible. If you require an accommodation or service (i.e. ASL, CART/captioning, digital or large-print materials, etc.) to fully participate, please contact us at least two weeks prior to the event.

ASL interpreter

If an accommodation would be helpful and the lead time is less than two weeks, please email or call us so we can make every effort to help you fully participate in the best way possible.

This is a brand new festival—an evolving and improving festival—so please contact us and describe any accommodation that helps your participation.
