The shuttle bus runs between Gate 3 and the downtown shuttle parking area located behind the Valhalla Inn starting at 10:00 am. There is no cost for using the shuttle bus. Due to traffic, the trip takes approximately 10 minutes, and there is no set schedule. The last bus leaves from Gate 3 at 5:00 pm. There are portable toilets available at the Festival site drop off and downtown shuttle parking areas.
Volunteers advise and assist with parking availability. Please follow their instructions. Parking along Highway 6 is prohibited between the bridge and 1st Ave on the day of the Festival for safety reasons. Be mindful of pedestrians on all roadways near the Festival.
While there are parking spaces available in close proximity to Centennial Park, these spaces fill early and usually remain filled throughout the day. We recommend parking in the large parking area behind the Valhalla Inn where the shuttle bus picks up and drops off. There is additional parking along Carpenter Creek. Watch for signs.
Handicapped parking is available at Gates 2 and 3. A sticker must be displayed to be eligible to park in these reserved areas.
If you are seeking a space, please respect the residential nature of the area and do not park in front of driveways or on lawns. Please do not park at the hospital facility and keep roadways clear for emergency vehicles.
No parking on 1st Avenue...emergency vehicles only
Free passes available! First 3 adults in a vehicle pay and the rest are free. Get passes from the parking volunteer where you park your car.
