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. 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.
In addition, existing businesses will be allowed to sell their products on their property, both inside and outside of their business contingent upon not blocking public right of way. However, the City will aggressively enforce the rules against transient vendors (carts, trucks, etc.) from improperly selling their products within the festival’s “clean zone.”
The Department of Public Works is issuing citations for the following safety violations:
•Parking within 15 feet of a fire hydrant: $20
•Parking in a fire lane: $20
•Parking on the median: $75
•Parking on the sidewalk: $20
•Parking in the travel portion of the roadway: $20
•Parking within 20 feet of a crosswalk or intersection: $20
Vehicles may be towed for all of the above violations; the tow fee is $156.
Citations can be paid and vehicles retrieved at 400 N. Claiborne Ave. from 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday – Friday. Payments can also be mailed to:
