Bring Sunscreen, Sunglasses, Shopping Money

Come early, and stay all day! Gates open at 9 a.m. Tents and umbrellas may be used for shade during the day, but must come down before the main stage concerts begin. Don’t forget your sunglasses and sunscreen! Remember, it is a June Music Festival in Alabama. Bring shopping money so you can shop the custom and unique items available in the vendor area.

FREE Parking & FREE Shuttles

For your convenience, we have several FREE public parking areas with shuttles running to and from the festival site. Shuttles begin running at 8:45 a.m. and continue until the end of the festival. We also have reserved wheelchair parking available to provide easier access to the festival area — but understand, this event is outdoors and there are hills, grass and gravel to deal with from all parking areas.
