Outdoor Terrain: Gulf Coast Jam is an outdoor music festival held on grass festival grounds. Although there are no big hills, heavy rain can make it a challenge to get around this site. There is a golf cart available to move people with disabilities from the main gate to the accessible seating area. The cart is not wheelchair accessible. The cart is only available for as long as the crowd permits. For the safety of all patrons the cart must stop running when the crowd becomes too big.
Viewing Areas for Patrons with Mobility Disabilities: Gulf Coast Jam provides a reserved area for patrons with mobility disabilities. All ticket types allow access to the seating area.
