Walk-ins and No Shows
If you did not get into all the classes you wanted, please come to the registration desk at class time and students will be added on a first-come, first-served basis as space permits. Please do not be late for your class or your spot will be filled, and please DON’T be a “No Show”. It is highly frowned upon when students are a no show for class. That is a seat that could have been filled by another willing student. Please respect that all our instructors volunteer their time and material to teach at Safety Fest.
At the registration desk we post the list of classes for the day that still have openings. We encourage walk-ins for those courses, so please just stop by and see us.
As always, we could not do this event without all of the support and contributions from our Founding Partners, Community Partners, Sponsors, Vendors, Instructors and all our volunteers. Be sure to recognize these community advocates of safety for all of the great support they have provided over the years.
