Getting to the Festival

Parking is EXTREMELY LIMITED this year due to heavy rains saturating the grounds we use for parking areas. Take our shuttle from an area lodging or park & ride location to avoid being turned around at a full lot.

Please drink responsibly and commit to using a safe option to travel to and from the festival. If you plan on drinking, then don’t drive. Organize a ride with a designated driver, take a taxi, or use our festival shuttle service.  

Festival Shuttle:

Cost: $3 per person, round trip (cash only; please bring exact fare)
The festival shuttle bus service is provided for Astoria-Warrenton Area Chamber of Commerce hotel & lodging members, in addition to many Public Park & Ride locations. You can expect delays and/or longer wait times during peak festival hours. Shuttle bus service is limited on Sunday.

Our shuttles run on their routes continuously, in order to reduce wait times at each stop. However, factors such as traffic and peak usage periods can delay the shuttles.

The shuttle costs $3 per person, round trip. We ask that you bring exact fare in cash.

Parking at the Fairgrounds:

Cost: $20 per car (cash only; please bring exact fare)
Parking is extremely limited at the festival – even more this year than in the past due to heavy rains limiting our parking areas.  Due to these limitations, on-site parking is expensive — $20 a car. The parking lot is cash only, so please plan ahead.   We encourage you to use our shuttle bus service.

RV and/or trailer parking is NOT available at the festival due to the size of the parking lot.

Handicap parking is available at the Clatsop County Fairgrounds, but this space is also limited. Disabled parking spaces are available to those with a handicap placard in the general parking area at the event. There is an accessible shuttle to assist those attendees to get from the parking lot to the festival building. The shuttles on the routes around town are not all equipped with handicap lifts.

Parking lot opens at 3 p.m. on Friday, April 22. Early birds not allowed.

Please leave your pets at home; they are not allowed in the Festival.
