Festival Site Description:

Music City Irish Fest is held in a park with paved pathways and little traveling to be done over mowed grass.  The site has potential to become muddy in the grassy areas during heavy rain.  All park ramps are paved and with a gradual incline, and all parking levels in the garage below the site are accessible by elevators.  The width of the festival site is approximately less than a quarter of a mile and about half of that distance in length.  

Getting Around:

The festival grounds and facilities are wheelchair accessible.  There are accessible pathways and routes throughout the park.  Viewing for the main stage area is located on mowed grass. We encourage all patrons to utilize personal forms of transportation, including wheelchairs and scooters.  We do not provide personal assistance or mobility device rentals. Absolutely no personal golf carts will be allowed.

Accessible Parking:

There is a limited amount of ADA Parking available. These spaces are located in the parking garage beneath the Historic Courthouse (same location as the festival site). These spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis. To park in these spaces, please bring you valid handicap parking permit, placard, or plate.
