Parking is NOT included with your festival pass. Each vehicle parking on-site at DelFest must have an On-site or Clifton’s Field Parking Pass. Redeem your parking pass for a decal at the main box office or purchase one there (while supplies last). If the total length of your vehicle plus anything that’s attached to it is 18′ or longer, it is considered an RV and must have an RV Pass or RV Dry Pass to park on-site. Off-site parking with 24 hr shuttle service is available as well. We strongly encourage carpooling!
Vehicles with On-site Parking Passes may leave and re-enter the fairgrounds, but are not guaranteed to return to the same spot. Clifton’s Field Parking Passes do not have re-entry due to the terrain. We appreciate your cooperation by limiting vehicular traffic in the campgrounds.
Patrons with a valid, state-issued accessible parking placard or tag must purchase the appropriate parking pass in order to park on-site. Upon arrival, show the parking attendant your Parking Pass and valid accessible placard and you will be directed to our Accessible Camping, centrally located within the fairgrounds and in close proximity to accessible bathhouses.
