Parking & Street Closing Info

Where can I park?

We try to make it easy to find a parking space when you come to the Fest, but please note that parking in our quaint downtown can be tricky on busy weekends. Parking is available in two public lots in the village, at the upper and lower Thatcher Brook Primary School parking lots and throughout the streets of downtown. Yellow PARKING HERE signs will be posted to assist visitors.

We encourage you to ride youThanks in advance for not riding bikes through our event!

What if I usually park on the streets that will be closed?

We understand that it can be an inconvenience to not be able to park in your usual spot for 36 hours and we thank you for your cooperation, letting us use the streets and the adjacent parking lots for our event!

All cars within the event perimeter must be moved accordingly from the areas detailed below, or risk being towed. Cars still within the event perimeter as of 6am on Saturday will be towed to a near by parking lot, though we would greatly appreciate it if cars are moved by their owners! Click here for some alternative areas to park. If you have questions or concerns, please contact us.
