    That is an impressive line-up! Don't think you can go too wrong.

    I've never been but always wanted to go. Got family stuff this weekend so I can't go. I would have really liked to see Del McCoury Band.

    I don't really get the impression they have a lot of jamming there, but I don't know for sure. It seems like less of a hard-core bluegrass, RV and camp-out crowd festival (like the one on Raccoon Mtn) and more of a, we're downtown and there's a free festival going on, so let's check it out festival. But what a lineup.

    You might want to check out some cool music stores while you're there. The Folk Music Store (lots of Eastman mandos) and Fiddler's Anonymous, both in Red Bank not too far from downtown. Mountain Music near St. Elmo (just south of downtown) usually has a couple of nice mandolins.

    Chattanooga local here. I haven't really seen any parking lot picking the few times I've been. The festival is right off the main road by the waterfront, so the stage is in a field, but parking is actually in a legitimate city-operated lot.

    Doublestoptremolo hit the nail on the head. The road is closed to traffic, but it's an area of heavy foot traffic. If I have time to get down there, I'll definitely go. Couldn't hurt to bring a mandolin. Call the Folk Music Store or Fiddler's Anonymous and see if they have any jams going on (apparently there are several in the city every week).
