Festival Parking will be located at the (OLD) Oldham Elementary School

This is NOT the location of the current Oldham Elementary School (on 60 Bart Dr.)


Handicapped Parking and Drop Off Lot at Rose Larisa Park

Only cars with a RI registered Handicapped placard may park in the Rose Larisa Parking lot at the south end of the park.  There will be additional handicapped parking spaces allocated for the festival. 


Those who cannot walk the distance from the Oldham School parking lot may be dropped off at this Handicapped lot.  However the car will need to find street parking or park at the festival parking lot. 

Please Respect Residents of the Nearby Riverside Terrace Community

There is no festival parking available on the Terrace, just South of the park.  This is a residential community that does not have additional parking for events. Thank you for your understanding.
