Jazz Fest Parking
It’s just a couple of weeks away and many folks are already getting excited about the upcoming fun and frivolity we know as Jazz Fest.
Lots of neighbors love to have guests join them at their home for each day of Jazz Fest. It’s a fun way to get together and walk over to Jazz Fest as a group. The big negative? …where to put the cars the guests bring.
Why not stop the hassle and aggravation of figuring out where to put all those cars and help out a fellow 501c3 organization at the same time?
The Deutches Haus will be offering safe, secure, hassle-free parking at 1700 Moss and it’s a short walk to Jazz Fest. You can even reserve your parking space in advance! Check out the details in the link below.
Parking enforcement personnel will be monitoring illegal parking, including blocking hydrants, driveways and sidewalks, or parking within 20 feet of a crosswalk, intersection or stop signs. Motorists are also reminded to park in the direction of travel on one-way streets, and with the right wheel to the curb on two-way streets.

The Fair Grounds Race Course is located in a residential part of the city offering restricted parking in surrounding neighborhoods. Festival-goers that are driving to the Fairgrounds are encouraged to park in downtown long term lots and use public transportation.
Parking enforcement personnel will be monitoring for illegal parking, including blocking hydrants, driveways and sidewalks, or parking within 20 feet of a crosswalk, intersection or stop signs, in the residential neighborhoods adjacent to the Fairgrounds.
