Where should we park?

There is free parking all around downtown, with public lots to the west of Center on Church Street, and street parking around the festival area.

Can we bring pets?

We love pets, but please leave your pets at home. Due to the heat and number of people, your pet will thank you for not taking them into the crowd! City regulations do allow for service dogs to be admitted to the site. No pets in artist tents, please!

There are also numerous restaurants up and down Main Street for your eating pleasure.
