Parking Information

Parking for the festival is free in one of our lots. There are spaces for more than 3,000 automobiles. Free shuttle buses take you to the festival entrance from lots B, C and D. Many local businesses now sell parking spaces near the Eyes to the Skies Festival for a price. Please understand that these lots are not connected with the Eyes to the Skies Festival and we cannot control any pricing on them. If you use them, you will still have to pay admission to the gate. Also, you will need to walk to the gate where as if you use the official Eyes to the Skies parking lots, you will have a shuttle bus bring you to the festival and drop you back off at the lot you parked in.
