Event Passports Event passports are designed with the intent of making the most of the festival. Students who participate in the passport program will have to attend a number of events before being entered into a draw. The draw will be done online. We will have ~500 passports printed. We will be distributing passports along with the volunteers that will be present at each of your events.
