A WORD ABOUT PARKING


Festival parking is not available within Discovery Park during Aftershock. Camping is also not allowed. In an effort to limit the amount of vehicles around the festival, we ask you to consider the convenient transportation options outlined below.

If you do drive, Aftershock greatly encourages carpooling as much as possible. There will be a limited amount of paid parking available for fans in designated areas surrounding the park. NOTE: The festival does not manage any of these lots and parking fees are set by parking lot management. All parking is at your own risk. Aftershock asks everyone to be a “good neighbor” and be respectful of the residents living near Discovery Park and use designated parking areas only.
