What is the cost of admission?
There is a $15 per person suggested donation that can be contributed at the many entrances to the park on the weekend of the festival
Where can I park?
Free all-day parking is available in several city-owned lots around the downtown area. The largest lot is located on Washington Street, behind Traci’s Diner and Rollie’s Bar and Grill. There is additional free parking in the lot on Beaver Street and in a small lot on Cross Street (behind the Belfast Co-op). On-street parking on most downtown streets is time-limited, and parking rules are enforced by the Belfast Police Department. All of these lots are just a short walk from the Celebration and from the downtown business area.
