General Public & Competitors: Please see here for general parking questions and maps. Note: Faculty/Staff parking lots on campus are available (with no permit needed) for parking on weekends and after 7:00pm on weekdays.
Luthiers arriving between 8:00am and 9:00am, we recommend coming to the Summit Circle on Locust Street to unload -- see here for a highlighted map. After unloading, you may park in any campus lot that is not designated as "24/7 Faculty/Staff."
Crafters/Handmade Market Vendors: for load in and out please come to the Summit Circle located on Locust Street. Load in starts at 8:00am. Carts will be available for you to check out in order to move your wares to your assigned table location. Please ensure that you have a form of identification to be held while you are using the cart(s).
Other Parking Tips: If you are arriving early, there's a good chance you can find a spot at the library parking deck which is available to the public on weekends. Please be advised that the first row of parking spots in the deck are reserved for faculty at all times– do not park there. If you are arriving later in the day (after 11:00am or so), we recommend the Raley Parking Lot off Rivers Street. There is also parking available to public on weekends next to Rankin Science Building– it's not as far as it looks, but it's an uphill walk.
