We have limited parking onsite at the fly shop for this large event. The Beauty Spa across the street off Streling Avenue has been kind enough to give us a majority of their parking for the day. Smilemakers is located .20 miles east on 33 has also allowed parking on Saturday. There is plenty of on street parking in the neighborhood behind the shop off Sterling and the cross streets or we recommend the parking garage on East Elizabeth street- less than a 5 minute walk to the shop. Almost all downtown Harrisonburg parking is within half a mile of the fly shop. If you are in town we recommend a quick cab or uber ride!
