Loading/Unloading area OPEN from 7am to 8:45 am and from 4pm to 6pm
The loading area is only one lane and is in one direction. It is very tight and will most likely get backed up. Please arrive early and be patient if you decide to use the loading area. If you can dolly or carry your items from the parking garage across the street then you should probably do that.
To enter the loading zone you must be going NE on Vernon Street and turn Right on S. Grant Street.
Vehicles may NOT drive on the concrete. All vehicles must stay on the asphalt street. There is a built in water feature under the concrete that will break if driven on and the concrete tiles cost about $1,200 each.PLEASE KEEP VEHICLES OFF THE CONCRETE!
Pull into the Loading zone and pull as far forward as possible.
The Loading zone is also a Fire Lane. You must,
leave your keys in your ignition,
leave your vehicle unlocked, and
leave your driver's window rolled down
while your vehicle is in the loading area so that Johny 5 Productions staff can pull your vehicle forward, or out of the way in the case of an emergency.
Unless your booth is located next to the loading zone, you will unload your stuff into a designated unloading area closest to your car. They will be marked on the ground in chalk as “LOADING”
As soon as your vehicle is unloaded, move it out of the loading area. See the map for potential trailer parking locations within walking distance.
You may not start loading things into your booth space or setting up your booth while your vehicle is in the loading area. After your vehicle is out of the loading area you may start setting up your booth.
The loading zone entrance will close at 8:45 AM regardless if everyone has unloaded.
