The Festival is run entirely by volunteers which is why we can offer it as a FREE event. Proceeds from souvenir sales and the raffle tickets (available at Kilby & the Harrison Mills Halls) go directly back to the Society to put on the next year’s event. Donations are always welcome with open-wings.
PARKING- Please use extreme caution driving in the festival region as there is quite a bit of traffic during the festival and the roads are narrow.
Parking is FREE in most areas (the ONLY exception is at Sandpiper Golf Resort see below)
NEW- The parking triangle at the 4-way stop on Morris Valley Road.
When you turn North on Morris Valley Road you will quickly arrive at the 4-way stop. This area has been designated as a parking spot for the Festival Weekend (ONLY). There is a gravel path at the north end of the path that visitors can walk up to Sandpiper Golf Resort and Eagle Point viewing deck (unmanned). The path runs parallel to the main road and is very flat and an easy stroll.
