Suggestions for Efficient Travel Time

Weather providing, the least hectic days to arrive are Friday and Sunday, and the best times are before 10 a.m. and after 1:30 p.m. Traffic on Saturday from mid-morning to mid-afternoon is very heavy. We strongly encourage Fairgoers to arrive early, to carpool or bike to the Fair from one of the nearby park-n-bike locations. Exiting traffic on Saturday afternoon can be very heavy too. Please consider sticking around for a while on Saturday afternoon to enjoy the Fair and avoid rush hour.

Handicapped Accommodations

Both the North and South lots have spaces reserved for handicapped citizens. MOFGA provides shuttle service to the fairgrounds from the South lot, and the handicap parking at the North gate is located adjacent to the gate.

Please Park "Nose-in"

Parking your vehicle nose in takes 10 seconds; backing in can take a minute or more. Insignificant? No. This difference is magnified many times by cars waiting to park and contributes to traffic jams! Please pull straight into your parking spot!

Vendor Parking

Vendors get one pass. All support staff in separate vehicles will be parked in general parking, including paid parking. (Maybe you can carpool!) If you put all your passes on your dash before leaving for the Fair, you’ll save time and confusion for the parking staff.

RVs

We do not have room for RVs in our parking lots and are therefore requiring all RVs to be parked at the independently operated Farwell's Corner Campground. The location is only 0.75 from the Fairgrounds and there will be a shuttle. The address is 479 Town Farm Road in Unity 04988. Consider biking to the Fair from this location.
