We encourage festival attendees to take advantage of the free festival parking and bus shuttles that we have arranged (see below for additional details). These parking lots are conveniently located close to the 401 so if you are travelling here from out of town you should plan to park at either site rather than navigate your way to the festival site itself.
Parking close to the festival site itself is available, but limited. Given the volume of people we expect at this festival, parking on site will likely fill up quickly and you may have to spend some time searching for parking. If you are booked on a specialty cruise, plan to arrive with lots of time to spare to either find parking or take the bus shuttle.
Information on city parking, rates, and location of parking lots can be found on the City of Brockville’s Parking page on their website. Please note that some of the regular lots will be closed during the festival – please refer to the map above for lots that will remain open during the event. Additional paid parking lots include indoor parking at The Aquatarium (accessed off of Flint Street) and $10/car special event parking on Saturday and Sunday at the north end of the Brockville Railway Tunnel (at the corner of Brock Street and Tunnel Avenue). Funds raised from the tunnel lot will go towards supporting the railway tunnel attraction.
If you are booked on one of our dinner cruises, they will depart from and return to Hardy Park. We recommend planning ahead and parking near to Hardy Park so you won’t have as far to walk at the end of the night. A final bus shuttle will also be available at the end of the cruise to take you back to festival parking.
