  1. Hi......I look forward to coming to this festival. Do you happen to know the best place to they run a shuttle ?

  2. Hi Kathy ~ Of course parking anywhere around the square would be closest, and I think there's a parking lot if you go on up KY avenue. Otherwise, it may be best to stay down on the turnpike near the Secret City Festival and ride the shuttle. A few years ago Oak Ridge began doing the Secret City Festival the same weekend as what we'd always done the Lavender Festival. For the most part, I think it's been working out as they do provide shuttle service up to Jackson Square. It's just that lots of people now do Secret City and forget about our smaller festival up the road.

  3. Oh, among other vendors, there's a potter from Norris that usually has a booth. You may know her ~ Sandy Byrne ~ I love her work! :)

  4. Hi Lana! Good luck at the festival. Please pics on your blog afterward, so that those of us who live too far away to come can see what's it like.

    Missing you! Hope your family is well.
