ADA Parking

There is limited accessible parking available near the festival on a first-come, first-served basis to vehicles displaying a state-issued handicapped plate or placard. The person to whom the placard or plate is issued must be present in the vehicle, as a driver or passenger. As part of gaining access to accessible parking, identifications will be checked to ensure legitimate use of these items. There are ADA parking spaces in the City Hall/Convention Center parking lot as well as the parking lot near the Roosevelt which you will need to enter from 5th Street.

Where can I Park my Car?

Free parking will be available in the City Parking Garage located at Franklin and 4th Street, the Hilton/Convention Center parking lot at Franklin and 3rd Street and across the street in the Spice Village parking lot. This parking will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. 

Can I Take my Bicycle?

We encourage all of our fans to use pedal power – by far the easiest way to get to the festival! Bike racks are available at each of the festival entrance gates. If you plan on leaving your bicycle at the bike racks at each of the festival entrance gates, don’t forget to bring your own lock! Please be aware that all bikes left locked in the designated bike racks after 10 p.m. on Sunday risk being impounded.

Where is Passenger Drop-off?

The easiest area to drop a passenger off will be at 3rd Street between Franklin and Washington.


From street parking and parking garages to parking lots, you can also find a map of downtown parking here.
