Special Event Parking

Overflow Parking

We have just received permission from the First United Church, 3410 Granny White Pike, to use their parking lot as over flow parking. This lot is 0.4 miles from the Festival, about an 8 minute walk north on Granny White Pike.

We have 3 approved parking lots for visitors to use. The first is a TDOT field located at the corners of Granny White Pike and Clayton Rd. This is our largest lot. All types of vehicles may park in this lot. If you drive an SUV and do not need handicap parking, this is the lot for you to park in. Parking volunteers will help festival attendees park. Festival attendees will be assisted across the street by a uniform Park Police officer.

Compact vehicles only are allowed to park in our Upper Field lot. Parking volunteers will help festival attendees park. Our final lot is the Sevier Park lot. We are using this lot for handicap parking only. Parking volunteers will monitor this lot controlling the traffic.

We ask festival attendees to obey parking laws when parking outside of these 3 lots. Do not block driveways, fire lanes, stop signs or park in no parking zones!
