Where Do I Park?

This year our parking will be different than in years past. We are adding BFI Select as a parking option, awarded to selected cars that apply to be in this section. Refer to the map below for a layout of the show parking. While we invite everyone to come out and enjoy this event, it is and always was primarily intended to be a celebration of European cars specifically. In keeping with this, we only allow European cars in the main / long term parking which is outlined in blue on the map below. For all other makes and models, as well as overflow and short term parking we ask that you use the lots next door at the soccer park, which is outlined in yellow. 

*For BFI Select, parking will be awarded via application process You MUST APPLY to be in the BFI Select lot. For the main lot, parking is first come, first served, and registration is not necessary to attend. Again, please do not arrive before 11:00 am or you will be turned away.
