Parking | Bristol Rhythm & Roots Festival



Free street parking is limited around State Street and the festival grounds.   Look for our Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion parking signs and check our festival map for parking locations. To help reduce our carbon footprint we strongly advise carpooling or parking at one of our shuttle pick-up sites.


ADA parking is available at Regions Bank (corner of Volunteer Parkway and Shelby Street). Once your state issued identification is verified, you will then be instructed where to park. ADA parking is limited and filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. The Disabled Veterans of America (DVA) operate the ADA parking area. Donations to DVA for parking there are appreciated.


Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion operates the Orange Lot located at Cumberland Square Park on the corner of Moore & Cumberland Streets on the Virginia side. Parking is first-come, first-serve.
