PARKING / TRANSPORTATION
Everyone is going to come to the event using a shuttle bus aside from limited onsite parking which is available HERE.
Find where you are staying below, and we’ll show you how to easily get to the festival.
I AM STAYING AT CAMP EAUX
There will be a fleet of dedicated FREE shuttle buses that run to and from the festival all weekend on a continuous loop, so it’ll be very easy for you to access the festival from the campgrounds. The first buses from the campgrounds to the festival site will depart at 12PM on Friday. There will be many buses on loop so you will never wait long.
I AM STAYING IN A UW-EAU CLAIRE DORM ROOM
We will be operating a fleet of dedicated FREE shuttle buses on continuous loop to and from the UWEC dorms to take you to the festival and back. The first buses from the dorms to the festival will depart at 12PM on Friday. When you show up to check-in for your room, you’ll receive all the info you’ll need about shuttle buses.
I AM STAYING AT A HOTEL IN EAU CLAIRE
A fleet of dedicated buses will provide shuttle services to and from most nearby hotels all weekend for a fee of $25 for both days or $15 for one day (paid to your bus driver upon pickup, cash only). Hotel shuttle pickup locations and schedule can be found here.

I AM STAYING SOMEWHERE ELSE AND WANT TO WALK OR BIKE
If you are planning to walk to the festival, please follow these directions. If walking from the west or the north, please come down Curvue Road MAP HERE and cross Crescent Ave at the crosswalk to enter the festival grounds. If walking from the east, please walk up Crescent Ave on the sidewalk, MAP HERE then cross the street at our designated crosswalk, and follow signage and staff to enter safely through the pedestrian path. Please be advised that law enforcement will be onsite to ensure that walking routes are adhered to for safety.
Unfortunately, due to the narrow road which leads to the festival and the amount of busses, for safety purposes we cannot accommodate bicycles at the festival.
I AM STAYING SOMEWHERE ELSE AND ONLY NEED A RIDE TO THE FESTIVAL (AND I DON’T NEED PARKING)
To keep the Eaux Claires experience as safe as possible, we are working in conjunction with local authorities to keeping pedestrians, bicyclists, and personal vehicles off the roads near the festival site during the festival. You should plan to get dropped off, bike or walk to one of our Hotel Shuttle pick up locations (list coming soon) and ride the shuttle bus to and from the festival.
We have no-fee ADA parking in our lot directly across the street from the festival entrance, and provide a shuttle service from your vehicle to the main entrance. Please click here to reserve your ADA parking pass. Remember you must have a valid state or federally issued ADA license plate or pass to utilize these spaces.
UBER / LYFT / TAXI
A designated drop off area has been established on the grounds of the Eaux Claires Music and Arts Festival for taxi, Uber and Lyft drivers to drop off and pick up passengers. A windshield sticker will be required for access to the drop off area. The stickers are free and will be available at the Sheriff’s Office beginning Friday morning, June 29th. If you have any questions please call (715) 839-1861.
