How to Get Here

When to Get Here
We recommend you arrive as early as possible in order to reduce traffic wait times getting into town.

Where to Park
Parking in town itself is very difficult on any weekend. The main thing is to avoid trying to park on Broadway. Instead, use the Carbon County Municipal Lot behind the downtown train station.

If you are arriving in Jim Thorpe on 209S from Stroudsburg, bear right through the light and in approximately 50 yards on your right, you'll see the lot entrance. If you are coming from 903S, then cross the bridge and go left at the light. From Nesquehoning on 209N just proceed straight through the light. In about 150 yards you'll see the lot on your left.
