Getting Around Town/Town Facilities
From Thursday, August 29 at 5;30 p.m. through Sunday, September 1 at 12:00 a.m., a section of Brush Creek Rd. will be closed after the Brush Creek/Highline Rd. roundabout. Brush Creek traffic will be diverted up Highline Rd and Owl Creek Rd. You will still be able to access the Snowmass Village Recreation Center.

The Snowmass Village Recreation Center and Horse Ranch Trail will remain open. Town Park including the playground and the gazebo will be closed Aug. 29-Sept. 1.

Getting There

The best way to get to and from the festival is by public transportation. If you're riding RFTA, regularly scheduled valley-wide service and fares apply coming to the festival. Everyone rides home for free. For attendees staying in Snowmass Village, ride the Village Shuttle for free service to and from the festival.

Free parking is available at the intercept lot at Brush Creek and Highway 82, with free shuttle service to the site. Free parking is also available at the Base Village parking garage, and at the numbered lots at the Snowmass Village Mall. Limited $20 parking will be available at the Snowmass Rodeo Lot.

Doors open at 4:00 p.m. on Friday, and at 2:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The on-site box office opens one hour prior to doors daily.
