National Folk Festival Event Scope

Dear Downtown resident,
The National Folk Festival is coming to Downtown Salisbury September 7-9, 2018. This event is unprecedented for Salisbury and we could not pull this off without your partnership! We wanted to reach out to all of our Downtown businesses, employees, residents, etc and re-share the event scope and footprint. You may see some disruption in the weeks leading up to the Festival, but the included map and grid will cover all the information you need to know.

Parking Lot Closures and Relocations
Lots will be closing in a rolling fashion, and the included grid and map will help you figure out where to park during the period if/when your usual lot is closed. (Please review the link to the map and detailed grid below for more details)

If you normally park Park
Lot 16Lot 10
Lot 30Lot 35
Lot 1Parking Garage
Lot 15Parking Garage
Lot 12/Lot 11Peninsula Insurance lot
Lot 4Lot 7 or 13
Lot 33Lot 35

 

We will be providing parking passes to those disrupted by the lot closures for the designated areas that permit holders will be parking in approximately a week before the lot closes.

**During Festival hours (when permitted lots are typically open to the public; after 5 PM weekdays and all weekends), we recognize that parking might be an issue and unfortunately are unable to guarantee a parking spot for permit holders. Please plan accordingly. This will likely affect people working evening shifts and our Downtown residents. **

Street Closures
A majority of the street closures will occur Friday morning of the Festival. Any cars left on streets within the scope of the festival will need to be gone by 6 AM, Friday of the Festival, as hard barricades will close the footprint.
Streets that will close earlier than Friday are as follows

  • N Division Street from Rt 50 to Main – will close 9/4/18 at 5 PM and reopen 9/10/18
  • W Market Street from Circle to Camden – will close 9/5/18 at 8 AM
  • E Main Street from N Division to Court – will close 9/6/18 at 6 AM

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact Dee Kelley in the City’s Parking Department at ddkelley@salisbury.md or 410-548-3162 or the Office of Business Development at info@downtownsalisbury.org or 410-677-1916.
We hope to see you at the National Folk Festival and thank you for your patience as we welcome this exciting event to Salisbury
