There are many parking lots that are within easy walking distance to the festival grounds. Free parking will also be available in the horse pasture off of North White Street, which is connected to the festival grounds by a paved walkway (approximately five minute walk to the festival grounds). Please be advised that these lots may fill up quickly on Friday, May 2nd, and Saturday, May 3rd. Some private lots near the festival grounds may also offer parking for a nominal fee. To maximize our parking capacity, carpooling is highly recommended.

 

Due to anticipated traffic volumes, the festival will also offer three courtesy shuttle routes. Free shuttle service will be provided to the festival grounds from three convenient locations:

  • Fort Mill High School - Enter from U.S. Hwy 21 By-Pass (Between Harris Rd & SC 160)
  • Nation Ford High School - 1400 A.O. Jones Boulevard
  • Downtown Lots - 124 Confederate Street (Across from Savannah's Room)

Shuttle service will be available on Friday, May 2nd, from 5 pm to 11:30 pm, and on Saturday, May 4th, from 9:00 am to 10:30 pm. Shuttles will depart from each location every 10-15 minutes.
