On-site parking for the general public will be limited so you are encouraged to use our shuttle service which will frequent most of our designated parking lots and local subdivisions. See our designated parking areas map for more information.
Additional details regarding our Shuttle Service Routes and Schedules can be downloaded below or accessed from our FREE app.
The Shuttle service will operate from just before and just after the regular festival hours and will arrive and depart from the shuttle service area located just outside the festival admissions gate.
There are different route colours and designated parking lot numbers, but don’t you worry, our Shuttle Rider volunteers will be sure to help you with that information, and our drivers will get you to your destinations as quickly as possible.
Items accidentally left on the Shuttle buses may be retrieved at our information booth just inside the festival main admissions gate.
The Kemptville Live Music Festival volunteers reserve the right to deny shuttle service at their discretion as the safety of all passengers is of the upmost importance!
Please note that the Kemptville Live Music Festival committee will make every effort to keep festival information as accurate and current as possible.

The two closest designated parking areas to the festival site are located across from the festival on the north side of Concession Road and include the parking lots of the North Grenville District High School and the South Branch Public School.
From these two closest designated parking areas you may walk to our admission gates by following the signs on the north side of Concession Road to our pedestrian safe walkway.
