Information on the 2022 Moon River parking availability is not yet available. For 2021 parking info, see below:
We do not have dedicated festival parking, and so you do not need a festival parking pass, but it's good to plan ahead and budget appropriately for paid parking lots in the city.
There is no parking available on the north side of the river in and around Coolidge Park. There is no parking allowed in Coolidge Park for the festival. Any vehicles parked in the Coolidge Park lots after the closure of River St. will be towed. Paid parking lots are available on the south side of the river (downtown) and provide easy access to the festival site via the Walnut St. pedestrian bridge. Visit City Website
Moon River provides all festival patrons access to a complimentary Bike Valet for those cycling to and from the festival. The valet will be located just off River Street near Outdoor Chattanooga and the Walnut Street Bridge.
