Pro Tips

  • Rideshare/carpool if possible. It’s not only good for environment, but it will minimize the number of vehicles accessing the grounds and help get you parked and into the festival faster!
  • Plan to arrive early, so you can take care of parking and get into the festival without missing a beat.
  • Please follow directions from event staff. This will help ensure smooth traffic flow and faster parking.
  • Remember where you park your car! Pin your location and take pics of nearby landmarks and signage.
  • Don’t leave valuables in your car. Leave them at home, or carry them with you.


If you’re using a rideshare service, taking a taxi, or just getting dropped off by a friend, have your driver go to the designated Guest Drop-Off and Pickup location (look for signs), which will remain open for the entire event.
