The Smoky Hill River Festival is documented each year by designated professional photographers hired by Festival staff. Their images are sometimes used appropriately for marketing purposes in subsequent years. Your purchase of an admission button gives permission for the use of your image in this fashion without notification or compensation. The Festival accepts no liability for any personal image used in this way.

Also, due to copyright infringement regulations for performing artists, absolutely NO unauthorized recording of any on grounds entertainment is permitted on Festival grounds for any reason.
