There is a festival parking lot located on Church Street - about a block away from the event. If staying overnight in Egg Harbor, we encourage you to leave your car, avoid festival parking altogether, and take advantage of the complimentary trolley shuttleWe have two general parking areas - outside of the Village - that are available free to park (and then ride a shuttle. One of the parking areas is two miles south of Egg Harbor - near Harbor Ridge Winery (just off Hwy 42), and the other is 3 miles east of Egg Harbor on Cty E (at Birch Creek Music Performance Center).

What is the shuttle service you offer?
We will have shuttles providing transportation to and from the event starting at 12 Noon and running through 6:30pm that night. The shuttle will service an area within a 4-5 mile radius (approximately) from Harbor View Park, and will stop at specific designated areas. Door County Trolley, an Egg Harbor based company, will provide the trolley shuttle service. Kobussen Bus will also provide three buses for shuttle.

Are there other means of transportation other than a trolley within the designated 5 mile radius?
Door County is distinctly not urban, and public transportation is not readily available. There are a few cab companies that  originate from Sturgeon Bay that may be available for transportation. If you do not plan on riding the shuttle we highly recommend arranging responsible transportation or having a designated driver before attending the event.  The laws are very strict on drinking and driving; it is simply not worth taking a chance.
