It’s worth noting as people prepare to descend on Vineyard Haven for Beach Road Weekend that the closest parking to the venue is at Tisbury School. There is no parking at Veterans Memorial Park where the three-day festival kicks off with gates opening at 4 pm Friday.
Free bus shuttles will begin to roll at 4 pm Friday, according to a press release from Beach Road Weekend. There are four offsite parking lots:
- Tisbury School 40 West William Street, Tisbury ($30)
- YMCA/Ice Arena 111R Edgartown Vineyard Haven Rd, Vineyard Haven ($20)
- American Legion 47 Martin Rd, Vineyard Haven ($30)
- Airport Parking Lot 71 Airport Rd, West Tisbury ($15)
All proceeds from parking will benefit the organization that provides the parking, according to the release.
Shuttles are also available from the Oak Bluffs ferry terminal, the PA Club, and the Edgartown School. There is no charge for riders, though they will be asked to make a donation to Camp Jabberwocky. Shuttles will run every 15 minute from each location, except the Tisbury School, which runs every 30 minutes.
Shuttles will run from 4 to 10 pm Friday, 11 am to 10 pm Saturday, and 11 am to 9:30 pm Sunday.
For festival attendees with disabilities, Beach Road has coordinated with the Vineyard Transit Authority, according to an email. The VTA will provide shuttles right to the gate where there is an entrance for those with disabilities “so individuals with disabilities will not have to wait in long lines.”
