Downtown Parking – FREE on Saturdays!

Parking is FREE after 5pm and all weekend long, including city owned permit spaces and metered lots.  The BEST place to park for the Market is the Munn Park parking lot,  the city permit lot next to BB&T adjacent to the Munn Park lot, the Main Street garage or the Oak Street parking lot.

If you are concerned about parking availability, be sure to check out the calendar of events on the web site found here (the LINKS page on this site).  Particularly Spring, Munn Park is host to many fabulous events which bring thousands of people to Downtown and its parking spaces. If walking is a concern, please be prepared by checking out other events happening in and around Munn Park.
