  • Pavilion Lot - $8
  • Median Lot - $8

In order to develop an equitable parking policy, we have increased the number of parking spaces for disabled persons, and the same parking fees for each lot are charged for all spaces in that lot. Please be advised that the number of spaces for disabled persons is still limited, however, and early arrival is the best method of obtaining a more close-in space.

Free Bicycle Parking

Free and secure bicycle parking is being provided by the Bicycle Coalition and is available at the southeast corner of the Median Lot. Children attending the Bike Rodeo on July 29 and Aug 5th may bring their bikes onto the Fairgrounds. Ride your bike to the Fair and get $2 off General Admission!
