Food, Beverages + Restrooms

Purchase from the food trucks! There is no drinking water available at the park, and we only have port-a-johns available, so come prepared.

Dogs

Dogs are permitted, but please use your best judgment regarding whether your pooch will enjoy the event. All dogs must be leashed, and please clean up after them.

Weather

If we need to postpone due to inclement weather, we will post on social media @ShopLocRaleigh & @RaleighParks on Twitter and Raleigh Parks and Shop Local Raleigh on Facebook.

Getting There + Parking

The most convenient park entrances to use are Hunt Drive off of Western Boulevard or Blair Drive off of Centennial Parkway. Look for signs along Umstead Drive. Parking is available in the four parking lots off of Umstead Drive. Due to the high volume of people and limited parking, please carpool if possible. Do not drive on or park in the grass – driving on tree roots damages the trees and we want to keep the 150 year old oaks around for as long as possible!

Accessibility

Dorothea Dix Park continues to work to be accessible and welcoming for visitors with disabilities and limited mobility. Planning to attend and have questions about accessibility? Contact Joseph Voska, Programs and Operations Supervisor, at 919-996-6688 or joseph.voska@raleighnc.gov.

  • Accessible parking with reserved spaces are available in all lots.
  • Accessible port-a-johns will be located near the event location.
  • Portions of the Dorothea Dix Park that have uneven surfaces are not ADA accessible.
  • This event will take place on grass, uneven surfaces, and across all forms of terrain.
