Bag Policy

What is One Harrison Food + Wine Bag Policy?

One Harrison Food + Wine reviews its public safety and festival security policies every year looking for ways to improve them. Destination Panama City strongly believes that the clear bag policy will enhance public safety and make festival access more efficient. This proactive measure will enhance safety inside and outside the festival and speed the security screening process for our patrons. The public deserves to be in a safe, secure environment. We constantly look for ways to enhance festival safety, and clear bags are part of best practices endorsed by security experts.

The clear bag policy has been adopted by the NFL, SEC and by many other venues that host entertainment events including college football games. Many other “Power 5” schools are also implementing a clear bag policy during the 2016 season. This policy is certified by the Department of Homeland Security.

We thank you for your understanding and support.

How will this policy effect screening time and entry into the festival?

The clear bag policy should enable us to move patrons through our security check points much faster. A standard size clear bag eliminates the need for bag templates that measure bag sizes. It is our belief that this new policy will make the festival security screening process more effective and efficient for our patrons.

How many clear bags can patrons bring into the festival?

Each patron is allowed one large clear bag such as a one-gallon Ziploc style bag or clear plastic, vinyl or PVC bag that does not exceed 12″ by 6″ by 12″, plus a small clutch purse or fanny-pack.

Can patrons carry cameras, binoculars, smart phones or tablets separately from what they put in a clear bag?

Yes. All of these items can be carried into the festival so long as they are not in a bag or case. For example, while binoculars and cameras are allowed, the binocular case or camera case is not allowed.

Can chairs be carried into the festival?

Yes. They will be asked to be removed from their bag to be searched.

Can I bring a blanket into the festival to sit on?

Yes. But, we ask that patrons bringing blankets into the festival toss them over a shoulder or arm to allow for easy screening when entering the festival.

What happens if I show up at the gate with a bag that is not permitted?

You will be denied entry.

If I have items I need to bring into the festival for medical reasons and they don’t fit in the clear bag, what do I do?

We fully understand that exceptions need to be provided for in the policy for medically necessary items. To that, and to ensure proper inspection by security personnel, those patrons with medically necessary items will be directed to a designated area to allow for specialized screening and entrance into the festival.

Are purses prohibited?

No. The policy states that a small clutch purse, with or without a handle or strap, or a fanny-pack is permitted along with either the 12″ by 6″ by 12″ clear tote bag or the one-gallon freezer bag. This should enable our patrons to bring the same items into the festival they have in previous years. While we strongly encourage patrons not to bring any bags, we believe we have created a policy that appropriately balances the needs of our patrons with our obligation to provide for their safety.

Do I need to fit everything I’m carrying into a permissible clear bag?

No. We are only limiting the type of bags that can be carried into the festival, not the items you normally bring to the show. For example, patrons can continue to carry items in their pockets such as keys, makeup, feminine products, comb, phone, wallet, credit cards, etc. You may also carry a blanket over your arms, or items like binoculars and camera around your neck or in your hands. You cannot, however, bring into the festival a binocular case or large camera case.

Can I bring a diaper bag into the festival?

The answer to this question is one in which our safety and security team evaluated every option they could think of. They fully understood that not allowing a diaper bag into the festival would be a challenge for many of our patrons, including those with young children. To that, we are very sorry for any inconvenience that not allowing a diaper bag into the festival may cause.

For the venues that previously adopted a clear bag policy, they tell us their patrons with young children have been able to make a few adjustments to accommodate what they need. By doing so, we hope to minimize disruption to parents and others with young children.

While we will continue to work hard to find acceptable alternatives, the global security threats we face every day make this new policy a safety imperative. To that, we respectfully ask that diapers be carried in an approved clear bag.


How can I volunteer?

As the event gets closer, we will be working with organizations to line up groups of volunteers for the event. If you have a non-profit group interested in volunteering, please email aly@destinationpanamacity.com.

Can my band play?

No, we are not accepting additions to the lineup at this time.

Do you offer Meet and Greet passes?

No, you cannot purchase Meet and Greet passes for our festival. However, they will be enjoying the festival, feel free to say hi.
