NEW! Free shuttle service at CelebrateErie will be provided by EMTA
Our 2018 survey results showed that parking was the main concern about the event. This year, we're partnering with EMTA to provide a free shuttle service for attendees.

  • Free parking is available at the Lincoln Park-And-Ride, Liberty Park, and the Intermodal Transportation Center (disability parking available at the Intermodal)
  • Buses will run from Lincoln Park-And-Ride, Liberty Park, and the Intermodal Transportation Center, to Perry Square at French Street
  • Shuttles will run on the hour and on the half hour from 12 p.m. until the end of the Mainstage shows
