PARKING 

Potlatch, Idaho is a small town. You can walk from one side to the other in a manner of minutes. Park where you can. Handicap parking near the venue entrance is marked and reserved. We will have a golf cart shuttle available for those who need assistance due to mobility issues. Please check in with our front gate to inquire about help.

From the West, Highway 95 meets Highway 6 at the Potlatch Junction. Town is another mile from there. Drive through town and follow the signs that will lead you to the Festival grounds on the right, at the top of the hill as you pass through. From the East, the Festival grounds are to the left right before you descend the hill on the main street.
