Taste of Minnesota Parking & Shuttles

Event Parking SignWondering where everyone is going to park for the Taste of Minnesota? Good news, we have a list.

Around the Carver County Fairgrounds there is quite a bit of free parking. No meters in this town. However, even though there is quite a bit of street parking, it’s going to be hectic with all the visitors in cars, on foot, on bikes, on busses, and everywhere.

Buses will have continuous shuttles, from 11 am to midnight, July 3-6, to the Carver County Fairgrounds. It’s about a 10 minute free shuttle ride, from the following lots:

West side of Waconia off Hwy 5.

  • Waconia High School
  • Waconia Ice Arena
  • Clearwater Middle School

South side of Waconia along Hwy 5

  • The Waconia Distillery. Sorry, this location is no longer available.

Buses will drop off and pick up on the South end of the Carver County Fairgrounds.

Handicapped parking is available on 3rd Street.

I’d highly recommend a shuttle bus as the traffic around the event isn’t going to be pretty.
