This year, we are changing things a little bit in relation to parking.
We will charge each vehicle $5 to park to make parking more manageable at the lots. The money that is collected from this will go to the 501c3 charity that is managing that lot.
Please ensure you have $5 cash to pay our parking attendants.
What is a 501c3? A 501c3 nonprofit is a particular type of nonprofit governed by Section 501c3 of the Internal Revenue Code, and the I.R.S. approves as a charitable organization.
Each paid-for parking lot will benefit a different 501c3. As always, our handicapped parking is free for our differently-abled friends.
The parking lots are as follows:
  • Handicap Parking- ♿
    Cape Vincent Recreation Park, 561 S James St, Cape Vincent, NY 13618
    A handicap-accessible bus for our differently-abled friends utilizing this parking lot will take you to the Festival near the corner of James and Broadway Streets. Next to The Cape Vincent Brewing Company, 🍺 The Twist of Cape 🍦The Rift Thrift👕
