Parking and Shuttles

Accessible Parking
Parking in the Festival Park Parking lot will be limited to those vehicles displaying disabled plates or placards or vendor passes.

General Parking
General parking is available on the hill as you enter Barkers Island. There may be limited spaces available near the Barkers Island Inn and Boat Launch areas - please follow all posted signs or barricades.

There will be NO PARKING along Marina Drive on either side. Vehicles parked there will be ticketed and towed at the owner's expense. It is important that we keep a safe corridor in case of emergency. Please follow all posted signs!

Those attending the events at the Fairlawn Mansion are encouraged to park in that area and remain there until you leave. You will be able to walk to the shuttles from there.

The haybale shuttles will be available again this year. Please note the routes on the event map for drop off and pickup locations. Riders will be asked to enter and exit on one side of the shuttle only.

The Duluth DTA will also be providing an Accessible Priority Shuttle this year. Please also view that route on the event map.

Shuttles will not make unscheduled stops. Routes have been determined keeping the safety of all riders as the highest priority.
