Parking & Vouchers

All registered (off-site) suppliers will receive a Soldiers & Sailors (SO) parking voucher in your packet the day of the show. Even if the SO's signage indicates that it is "full - permit only", you have a permit, therefore, you will have a place to park.

If you plan to unload before you park: If you unload before you park, pick up your parking permit at your booth/table, then display the permit on your dashboard and park in the Soldiers & Sailors Parking Garage (SO) under Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall. Your parking permit will ensure that you have a reserved space in SO, and you will qaulaify for "Permits Only" parking.

If you are not unloading and just need to park:

If you did not register for the show, try to park in SO as a paying customer. If SO is full, other parking options are available.
