Ticket purchase is required for alcohol, pumpkin decorating, and face painting. Everything else such as food, non-alcoholic drinks, and artwork is cash or credit card. Artists differ in their payment policies – Ask before you shop. An ATM will be available on-site. 

Beer and wine = $5 or $6 ticket

Parking

Because this festival is held in a residential area, parking is on-street only. There are no lots available in the immediate vicinity. Arrive early to get the closest spots. Park anywhere on the surrounding streets and Bardstown Rd. near the intersection of Dundee, Yale and Wibben. Please be respectful of Belknap neighbors by not blocking driveways or alleys or parking on lawns. It’s no fun to find a parking violation ticket on your car when you return.
