As you’ll notice, the event footprint is much smaller than 2018
& 2019’s Festival, which reduces the number of street and lot closures that
will occur.

 Parking Lot
Closures & 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 permitted lot is closed.

If you normally park: Move to:
Lot 10 by Main Street Lot 10 closer to Church
Lot 1 Parking Garage
Lot 15 Parking Garage
Lot 11 Parking Garage
Lot 16 Parking Garage
Lot 4 Parking Garage *changed from original letter that went out*
Lot 12 Parking Garage

We will be providing parking
passes to permit holders disrupted by the lot closures in the weeks leading up
to the Festival.

**During Festival hours (when
permit parking is not enforced), we recognize that parking might be an issue
and unfortunately, we are unable to guarantee a parking spot for permit
holders. Please plan accordingly. This will likely affect people working evening
shifts **

Street Closures

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

  • W Market Street from Circle Ave to Camden St –
    Tuesday 9/7/21 at 6 AM
