Parking

As we did in 2014, we are offering reserved parking for the four-day event for a $500 donation to the Museum. For 2019, instead of having a numbered spot, your $500 donation will give you access to a reserved lot Wednesday through Saturday of the event week, and you will be able to park in any open spot. Donations for reserved parking will count toward the $1,000 minimum for Winner’s Circle but will not be eligible for Fall 2018 or Spring 2019 Giving Campaign gifts.  Donations are not refundable.

To reserve your spot, please click on this secure link, choose General for the donation category, complete your personal information and type Reserved Parking in the additional notes field.  An acknowledgement letter for your donation will be sent to your inbox immediately.  Parking passes will be mailed via US Postal Service to the address we have on file for you in July 2019, or passes may be picked up and signed for when you are here during Bash 2019.  Replacement passes will not be available.

Please email or call Connie Russell at [email protected] 270-467-8815 if you have questions.
