Guide For Guests With Disabilities
This Pavilion Access Guide was developed to provide our guests with disabilities with information about Bangor Waterfront Pavlion. A variety of accommodations are available to make your experience an enjoyable one.
- Accessible seating services are available from the time the tickets go on sale until the time of the event. Seating is available in all price categories, and is sold on a first-come, first-served basis.
- The Darling's Waterfront Pavilion has an Accessible Services Program (ASP) to better serve patrons who experience disabilities and individuals with special needs. It is our goal to provide a fully enjoyable experience for all patrons. By providing these services, we hope that patrons with disabilities will have no hesitation in attending an event at the Darling's Waterfront Pavilion. The Accessible Services Program exists to provide the best available seating to meet any individual’s needs. The program may be used to order tickets to events, request special services, or for other assistance needed in order that an individual may more fully enjoy an event.
- Certified service dogs for guests with disabilities are welcome at Darling's Waterfront Pavilion. All other animals are prohibited. If special accommodation is requested, please contact the administration office at 207-358-9327
