PARKING/SHUTTLES

A shuttle service will be offered by BRATS (Baldwin Rural Area Transportation System) for $5 for a wristband which will be good for the entire day. Free parking will be available at Plantation Pointe Shopping Center, Ecor Rouge Place, Eastern Shore Village Center and the east side of Volanta Sports Complex. The festival drop-off location is at the corner of Fairhope Ave. and Bancroft Street near Faulkner State Community College.

 

All of the parking locations are less than a five-minute ride away. Due to limited parking in Fairhope, we recommend using the shuttle services.

 

The City of Fairhope is providing handicapped parking spaces in the parking lot behind Julwin’s restaurant. Additional handicapped parking will be located in the Municipal Parking Lot on Bancroft. Once those parking spaces are filled, we recommend you park and ride the shuttle services.

 

Free valet parking for bicycles will be provided behind the Fairhope Museum of History.
