The first Rockin' Country Music Festival, a two-day affair headlined by the likes of Old Dominion and Billy Ray Cyrus, is right around the corner, and the City of Taylor has announced parking details. The festival is scheduled for Friday, September 8, and Saturday, September 9, in Heritage Park.
Parking will be available inside Heritage Park and Wayne County Community College. VIP and handicapped parking will be available in the Sheridan Center Open Air Pavilion's Pardee Street lot, along with the adjacent Taylor Community Library parking lot. Overflow VIP parking will be rerouted to the WCCCD parking lots. Parking will be $10 per car.
No tailgating will be permitted in any of the parking lots.
For general parking inside Heritage Park, vehicles should enter through the Northline Road entrance, at Racho Road.
An Uber and Lyft (cab) drop off site will be available at the Heritage Park Petting Farm (Northline and Pardee).
The festival doors open at 3 p.m. on Friday and at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday.
Those attending should note that the concert is a "clear bag" event. No tailgating is allowed. The site will be a gun-free zone; no firearms are allowed.
Patrons of Heritage Park should take note that while the park will remain open during those dates, NO GENERAL PARKING will be allowed. Once it is cleared of vehicles on Thursday, September 7, the only parking allowed in the park will be paid parking for the concert. There will be no exceptions.
Walkers, runners, cyclists and general visitors not attending the music festival are welcome in the park, but no free parking will be available. The Taylor Farmer's Market will be closed on Friday, September 8, and the petting farm will close at noon and will remain closed to the public on September 9.
The library will be closed on both Friday, September 8, and Saturday, September 9. It will reopen from 1-5 p.m. Sunday, September 10.

Keyes, Moran, Klebba, Phyllis, Livingston, Ernst, Ran, Birch, Morley, Maplelawn, Goldenridge, Lincoln, McKinley, Beechwood, Katherine, Dudley, William, Baraga and Mortenview should be avoided. Signage will clearly alert concert goers that they should not park on residential streets, and the Taylor Auxiliary will be monitoring locations.
