Bent Fest is 100% committed to creating as safe an environment as possible. Please come and respect others and their personal boundaries. There won't be a door policy but this is a QUEER event, no tolerance for creeps and preds.
Unfortunately VFD is not as accessible a venue as we wish we could provide. There are a number of steep steps leading down to the venue. However, once you are in the venue there are no additional steps.
