Directions & Parking
New for 2017!
Moravian College ParkPlatz
Patrons looking for convenient and close access to all the music, food and fun of Musikfest have a brand-new option this year as Moravian College and ArtsQuest partner to offer a publicly accessible parking lot on the college’s South Campus, located in the heart of the festival grounds. The Moravian College Parking Lot, dubbed Moravian College ParkPlatz, marks the first time ArtsQuest has been able to offer parking to patrons within the North Side of the festival grounds.
Parking on the Moravian College lot is limited to 30 vehicles daily and passes are sold on a first come basis. Each parking pass comes with an official Musikfest 2017 collector’s refillable mug, as well as a Moravian College Koozie. Passes, which cost $25, are available in advance only.
Access to the Moravian College lot will be via Lehigh Street, just west of the intersection of Lehigh and New Streets. All proceeds from parking pass sales will go to support Musikfest’s 500 free concerts for the region each year.
Parking passes must be picked up at the Banana Factory front desk on the day of the event after 10 a.m.
Coming to a Sands Steel Stage concert? Purchase two tickets to the Oasis and you’ll get a parking pass for the Sands Steel Stage parking lot right next to the venue, plus access to the venue’s only full-service bar and air-conditioned restrooms.
