A section of the U[niversity of] O[regon] campus -- from 15th Avenue to the north, 18th Avenue to the south, Agate Street to the east and University Street to the west -- will be a pedestrian-only festival zone containing Hayward Field and much more.More info at the Eugene '08 website.
It also will include a temporary bar and grill, Niketown store, food court and concert stage. It will have two jumbo video screens and interactive exhibits for adults and children.
The zone will be open before, during and after each day's competition. Festival admission will be free, which means fans without a ticket can settle down in front of one of the screens with a beer and a sandwich and not miss a minute of the action.
