Directions to GCC and Parking Options
Festival Parking — Three Options!
- Parking at the Festival
— In order to ease congestion of traffic, encourage commuting and camaraderie and make a dynamic contribution to the Greenfield Community College Music Department, there is a charge ($10 per day) to have those cushy on-campus parking spots. You’ll get a nifty tag to hang from your rear view mirror so we know you’re legit! Buy your Parking Permit:
- before the festival in person at the Franklin County Chamber office (395 Main Street, Greenfield) or World Eye Bookshop (156 Main Street, Greenfield)
- on festival weekend at the gate. Note: parking permit sales at the gate are cash only ($10 per day).
There are a limited number of parking permits available, so plan ahead to get yours. Note: As of 7/11/13 at 5 PM, parking passes are no longer for sale online.
- FREE Parking with Shuttle Bus Service — Have no fear, should you not want to pile up all your festival-going friends in one car and pony up the money for the on-campus parking, you have a choice! The shuttles make a continuous loop between the shuttle parking lot (Wedgewood Gardens) and the campus from 11:00 am – midnight on Saturday and 11:00 am – 9 pm on Sunday.
- Share a Ride — If you’d like to share a ride to the festival, check out the RideBuzz website.
Greenfield Community College (premium parking) is located at One College Drive, Greenfield, MA 01301. Wedgewood Gardens (free parking with shuttle) is located at 1 Kimball Drive, Greenfield, MA 01301. The Google map below indicates both parking options.
