With tens of thousands arriving to enjoy the parade-carnival-concert-fireworks, it’s a busy day for parking. Parking is throughout the streets of Havre de Grace. PLEASE do not block driveways, walk zones, fire  hydrants and handicap parking areas. Be kind to residents – and vice versa – and, most of all, be patient.

There is VERY limited handicapped parking in the Tydings Park area, so it is suggested you arrive early to find it. All of our activities ARE handicapped accessible, but we cannot guarantee parking.

PORTA POTS (for your convenience)

During the PARADE they’ll be located at the intersection of Congress & Union Ave, and Revolution & Union Ave (in the Hospital Parking Garage).

There are also lots of units located in the Carnival Area.

Transient docking is also available at Havre de Grace Marine Center (410-939-2161) and Tidewater Marina (443-209-1141).
