Our Festival Info page has tons of helpful information about the festival, and we recommend reading it before you head downtown this weekend. Here’s a quick round-up of some of the logistics information found there:
Construction and street closures
When planning your travel to the festival, be sure to reference FCTrip, a resource from the City of Fort Collins that provides live information on construction projects and traffic conditions.
Some streets in and around the festival area will be closed in the days leading up to and during the weekend. See a detailed list of festival street closures here.
Transportation and parking
Avoid parking hassles downtown by utilizing the MAX, which runs every 5-15 minutes during festival hours. Check out the festival weekend schedule here, as well as the general Transfort schedule for all bus routes.
If you need to park your car, public parking is available at the Old Town Parking Structure (Remington Street and Mountain Avenue), the Old Firehouse Parking Structure (Jefferson Street and Chestnut Street), the Firehouse Alley Parking Structure (Jefferson Street and Chestnut Street) and the Civic Center Parking Structure (Mason Street and Laporte Avenue). Normal rates apply on Friday; Saturday is $5; Sunday is free. Additional parking can be found on public streets surrounding the festival.
Bike and skateboard parking are available at multiple locations throughout the festival. Check out the festival map for specific locations.
Festival maps and schedules
Plan your music schedule ahead of the festival by downloading the new Bohemian Nights mobile app. There, you can browse the full lineup and save performances to create an individualized schedule. The app includes an interactive GPS festival map.
The festival map and music schedule are included in the festival’s music guide, which is available at the festival’s information booths and handed out by Bohemian Nights volunteers in green shirts at festival entrances.
Mountain Avenue venue reminders
At the Mountain Avenue venue, be prepared for all-day bag checks upon entrance. Portable restroom facilities will be available at the Mountain Avenue venue all day, as well as water and select beers for sale.
Saturday headliner simulcasts
Mountain Avenue isn’t the only place to see Bonnie! Saturday night's headliner performance by Bonnie Raitt will be simulcast live on large screens at Old Town Square Stage, Library Park Stage, and in the northwest corner of Library Park.
Keep your four-legged friends happy and healthy by leaving them at home
Like the rest of this city, we love dogs, which is why we suggest you attend the festival without them. A few reasons why:
Remember to bring a water bottle, sunscreen, and your dancing shoes (er, sneakers?). Enjoy the festival!
