Reenacter Parking and Parking Pass

Reenacter parking is located off Perryville road. Entrance is just past Home Depot. Entrance will be marked by yellow signs on black fence which faces Perryville road.

Upon registering, you will receive a "Parking Pass" which you will print your first name and your unit info on the face of the pass, then you will place this pass right side up on the dash of the vehicle you came in. If you brought four people with you, you will have four passes on your dash. failure to comply will only get your vehicle ticked and/or towed!

The Reenacter parking area will be marked as to where you will park. The MP's will be around to assist you in complying in case of confusion.
No parking in the Museum Village, Authentic Camp area, Museum Parking Lot, or by the venders PERIOD!

You cannot park your vehicle on the west side of the camp area and village per Rockford Park District.

Reenacters will be given 10 minutes to unload/load their car during setup hours (except during school tour and public hours). Another words, park your vehicle, then walk to registration, then unload your vehicle, do not, drive around camp area looking for your unit, registration will have that information and someone will show you where.

Once you are done unloading/loading your vehicle please park your car in the reenacter parking area ASAP, to give others room to unload/load!
Venders will be given more time, venders please see Venders Section.
