Tony's FAIR F.A.Q.
Tony's FAIR is comin' up.. ! On Thursday, November 21st 2019, we will present Tony's annual FAIR report at Tony's FAIR on the Westergas. Let's MAKE SOME NOISE for 100% slave-free chocolate! Got questions? Check 'em out below..
What is Tony's FAIR?
Ehh.. Tony's FAIR? This is the coolest and most inspiring annual FAIR meeting in the world. Although, judge yourself, but we’ll give it our very best shot ;) At Tony’s FAIR we’ll present our annual FAIR report to everyone who is important to us: Team Tony’s, partner farmers, Serious Friends, chocolate fans, customers and suppliers. We have an impactful program with inspiring talks, we look back on last year what happened in chocolate land and we look ahead to what lies in front of us. And, in the evening we party, dance and celebrate with everyone present and artists that support our mission. This all to involve you in our mission. Because only together we can make chocolate 100% slave free.
Want to know more? Keep an eye out on our website https://fair.tonyschocolonely.com and our social media.
What is the price of a token?
There is enough chocolate to taste and water is free. For all other stuff, food and drinks, you can pay with tokens. The token price at Tony's FAIR 2019 is €2,50. The FAIR is cashless, so you can buy your tokens with a debit or credit card.
Is the FAIR handicap accessible?
Yes, Tony's FAIR is handicap accessible. Please be aware that the elevator in the Q-Park is not working at the moment, so it's best to get dropped off by your fellow FAIR buddy close to the Westerpark, instead of driving into the parking lot first. Otherwise, you can find all handicap parking spots close the the Westerpark here.
Will there be pictures taken of me?
Everything is being filmed and photographed. A picture lasts longer, after all! So by being here, you give us permission that’s ok, without getting anything in return. Expect for an awesome party, of course. And hey, maybe you'll get famous!
Can I eat vegan/vegetarian at the FAIR?
Yes, you can! Every year we try to offer a diverse range of foodstands, including a wide choice of vegan and vegetarian dishes. And.. every food truck will make its own dish with Tony's chocolate!
Can I bring my own food, booze or animals?
You can't bring your own food or drinks. There's free water at the FAIR all night. Alcohol, bottles, cans, fluids, food and glassware are not allowed on the FAIR premises.
Also: animals aren’t allowed either, except for party animals. And weapons are completely prohibited, of course! Any objects that can be used as a weapon will be confiscated, and the owner can go check out the inside of a police car.
Can I smoke or bring drugs?
Drugs are not allowed. Caution, because we have a zero-tolerance policy. Smoking is only allowed in the designated smoking areas, also Vape Pens.
Is there a guarded wardrobe?
There are lockers available where you can keep all of your valuables. A regular backpack will fit in there. To use a locker, you pay a deposit of 5 euros, which you'll get back, either cash or in chocolate, when you empty your locker. Make sure to empty your locker before 00.00 hrs, as the lockers will be removed directly after Tony's FAIR has ended.
Do you need an ID or is there an age limit?
Children of all ages are welcome! Children under the age of 12 years old may attend the FAIR under adult supervision and until 20.00. Then it’s bedtime. Visitors younger than 18 years old receive a different wristband which doesn't allow to order any alcohol.
Will earplugs be available?
Loud noises and music can be harmful for your hearing (duh!). Earplugs can be purchased at the pin desks. Also: there’s a lot of lights which can trigger seizures for people with photosensitive epilepsy. We are not liable for harm that may occur.
How do I get to Tony's FAIR and where do I park, hop off or park my bike?
By public transport
You'll find De Gashouder at Klönneplein 1 in Amsterdam (close to Tony's Homebase, that's right!). From Amsterdam Central Station you can take bus 21 and get out at Van Hallstraat (that's the name of the stop).
You can park your car in Q-park Westerpark. Whenever it's full, you can use one of the Parkbee options at De Wittenkade, Beuningenplein and Limburg van Stirumstraat. There's also a P+R from Sloterdijk. From there, you can take bus 22 to Haarlemmerplein, and walk into the Westerpark for 10-15 minutes. Here you can see if there's still spots left at P+R Sloterdijk.
There will be room to park your bike at the Polonceaukade, before entering the path to the Gashouder.
Can I bring my own sound equipment?
Sound systems and recording equipment, except our own, are not allowed at the FAIR. You may also not engage in any commercial activities. You can do that in your own time man!
Misbehaviour, danger or disturbance
If you misbehave in any way, at or around the FAIR, you can go home and call it a night. A body search may be carried out, so if you’re ticklish please let us know. And we reserve the right to deny anyone access to the FAIR. If we suspect any conspiracy resulting in hinderance, danger or disturbance, we have the right to escort you out and/or remove you from the FAIR premises. In any case: follow directions given by security and the staff. They know what they’re talking about.
