Parking & Transportation

Parking is not included in your event ticket. We expect heavy traffic and limited parking availability. Please plan in advance.

A shuttle is scheduled to run all three days of the festival, On Friday and Sunday, it will be a Red Trolley and on Saturday, we will provide a 20 passenger coach. The planned shuttle route begins at the Main Gate at Water street, to Jeff’s Garage to Highwater, up High St., taking a right on Third St, around the park, going left on Second street back down to the Main gate. 

There will also be a Laketran bus running to the Main Gate for visitors who have parked further away in town. 

There will be bicycle parking for those wanting to ride to the event!
