Need to park at Mumford concert? Read this


If you’re planning to attend the Mumford & Sons Gentlemen of the Road festival that begins Aug. 29, pay attention to local rules on parking or risk a fine or tow, the city’s business development organization warned Tuesday night.

Troy Main Street, Inc., said many public and private lots will be by permit only and specifically reserved for residents, downtown businesses or volunteers. Signage at each lot will identify the permit group and hours/days of operation.

Vehicles parked in lots without the necessary displayed permit will be subject to fines and towing. Some streets will be limited to permit-only for downtown residents.

Residents of the following streets and blocks can visit Troy Main Street’s office, in the 405 Building, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. daily to pick up on-street parking passes. Proof of residency is required. Alternative times for pick-up can be arranged by calling (937) 339-5455:

* The 100 - 199 block of East Water Street

* All of North Walnut Street

* The 0 -99 block of South Mulberry Street

* All of North Mulberry Street

* All of Pearson Court

* 0 - 99 block and 100 - 199 block of East Franklin Street

* 0 - 99 block, 100 - 199 block of West Franklin Street

Visitors who are not camping should park at WACO airfield and ride the shuttle to the venue. Those camping will be emailed directions to special parking lots and shuttles on the north side of the Great Miami River.

The concert on Friday night, Aug. 30, will feature Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Phosphorescent, Willy Mason and Half Moon Run.

Mumford & Sons will headline the all-day Saturday, Aug. 31, show, along with artists including Old Crow Medicine Show, The Vaccines, Justin Townes Earle, Rubblebucket, Those Darlins, Bear’s Den and Yacht Club DJs.
