The above map shows the various FREE parking lots around Hyde Park. Use the address to GPS you to those parking areas. Have a lot of gear with you? No problem. Drop off your things and people at Gate B then continue on to parking. HYDE PARK ROAD WILL BE CLOSED TO THRU TRAFFIC. Blues Fest volunteers will also be operating golf carts to help transport people and goods to and from parking areas. Flag us down!
We have a limited number of handicapped parking available at the Witt School parking area. Area should be marked but ask a volunteer if unsure. There is an area of pavement in front of the school facing the stage. (You will be far from the stage if seated here but you will have no obstruction in front of you.) A handicapped port-o-pottie is in the Gate B area.
Festivals in the open air and sunshine are so fun! But for our beloved Hyde Park, that means no running water toilets. We will have port-o-potties on site.
Stafford Emergency Service will be on hand for any medical problems. If you are having a problem during the festival, flag them or any Blues Fest volunteer for help.
Definitely bring comfy chairs or a blanket for sitting. EZ up style canopies are allowed but will need to be set up at the very back or side of the field so as not to obstruct the view of others enjoying the show. Coolers are allowed. Snacks and food are allowed. Food trucks will be available as well. Drinks are allowed though we ask no outside alcohol. We do have a beer truck on hand to serve you delicious cold beverages! No glass containers of any kind. No weapons of any kind. We are all here to listen to music and have a good time!
Do you have questions?
Reach out, and let's make magic happen.
