Parking Information - Entrances and Best Practices
Show Parking (red) is designated for show vehicles such as antique cars, exotics, and out-of-the-ordinary machines. Some of the spots are reserved by the coffee house for particular attendees. If you are visiting the Cars & Coffee as a spectator, we ask that you do not park here. This is the most popular lot and begins filling up the earliest. If you would like a spot here, it is suggested that you arrive early – around 6:00ish.
Secondary Parking (orange) is the lot adjacent to the Coffee House parking area and is the second lot to begin filling up on Saturday Mornings. There is a mix of parallel spots along the outer side of this lot (cars park on both sides of the side road), as well as parking spaces. Some of these spaces are reserved for local businesses and are designated by “No Parking” signs.
Overflow Parking 1 (blue) is up a small incline from the main show area. There are parking spaces along the incline as well as in the alcove towards the right and left. These spaces are usually the second or third parking area that fills up on Saturday mornings.
Overflow Parking 2 (green) is the best bet to find parking if you show up late to Katie’s or are arriving as a spectator. This area is towards the rear of the Coffee House and wraps around to the back.
Entrance 1 is accessible by turning onto Village Center in front of the Great Falls Volunteer Fire House. This entrance is the main entrance to the show area and thus draws in a lot of foot traffic – which may put you in somewhat of a traffic jam.
This entrance is accessible by turning onto Village Center after passing through the traffic light in front of the Great Falls Cleaners. This entrance is the secondary entrance to the show area and also the primary entrance to the overflow parking area 1. There is a slight decline / incline here.
The third entrance is accessible by turning onto Walker Road (at the traffic light) and turning right after you’ve passed the Bank of America. This entrance is the primary entrance to the overflow parking area 2 and your best bet if you arrive late to Katie’s or are arriving as a spectator. There are no speed bumps or inclines entering this way.
Please, please don't park in handicap parking spaces unless you do, in fact, need them. If you do need the parking spaces designated for the disabled, please display proper signage as required by your state. Respect your fellow car enthusiast.
