Traffic Troubles

The one thing (well, besides the weather) the we have no control over at the Wool Festival is the traffic. The number of people coming in and out is staggering - a large five figure number! Here are a couple things I can recommend:

Try to avoid the peak times. Okay, so when would that be? The biggest complaints I heard last year was mid to late afternoon. Come early.

Shuttles. Here is the information off the main festival website. "Park your vehicle at Pendleton County High School on U.S. 27 or hop on board a shuttle bus at the Pendleton County Library on Main Street, downtown Falmouth. Shuttle buses will be running between the Pendleton County High/Pendleton County Public Library every 1/2 hour!

The shuttle bus saves you time parking your vehicle and really gets you there faster with no hassles. Shuttle buses will be running every half-hour starting at 10 a.m. Saturday morning and finishing at 10 p.m. On Sunday the shuttle starts at 10 a.m. and runs until the Festival closes at 6 p.m. The shuttle ride is free and it drops you off right at the festival grounds."

I hope this helps and we see you in just a few days!

  1. Thank you for posting this. Hopefully this will help those that are frustrated with the traffic to try another option. There is a local pumpkin festival that people sit in line for 3 hours just to get onto the grounds to park. It is crazy! Can't believe that the Wool Fest is this weekend already. Where has the time gone?
