Festival & Parade Parking, Road Closures & Restrictions

Visitor Parking

Free public parking is available at the Kaiser Permanente garage (on the corner of N. Washington Street and Park Avenue) and the George Mason Square garage (103 W. Broad St.). Free parking is available on some side streets, but please check signs for time limits.

Do Not Park in Shopping Centers and Office Lots

Visitors should NOT park in private parking lots with posted "No Parking – Towing Enforced" signs, including shopping centers and office buildings. The private lots are for the customers of businesses only. Many businesses enforce parking restrictions on weekends and holidays and may tow without notice. It is possible your vehicle will be towed even if you patronize a business then leave the premises to attend the festival.
