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 will have bike racks at the bottom of Bidwell Lane. Thanks in advance for not riding bikes through our event!

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

Starting at 9am on Friday, July 14, Stowe Street, Bidwell Lane, the Sunja’s parking lot and the Blue Stone/Stowe Street Emporium parking lot will be CLOSED for thru-traffic as well as parking. All cars on Stowe Street must be moved at the time of street closing or they will be towed. Cars still in the parking areas on Bidwell Lane 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.

The street will reopen by 6pm on Saturday, July 15.

We understand that it can be an inconvenience to not be able to park here for 36 hours – thanks in advance for your patience and letting us use the streets and the adjacent parking lots for our event! If you have questions or concerns, please contact us.
