Primary lots impacted by tennis and track and field competitions include the C16 and Shively lots, as well as the Sports Center employee intermediate lots. Sports Center Garage (PS#7) will require valid UK permits or the visitor pay rate of $2/hour. The Kroger Field Green Lot is designated for bus parking.

Railbird Music Festival

The annual Railbird Music Festival will take place on Saturday, June 1, and Sunday, June 2, at the infield at Red Mile. As a result, permit holders should anticipate additional traffic in the vicinity, as well as parking impacts.

Railbird Festival organizers have arranged to lease the Kroger Field Orange Lot, Red Lot, and West Blue Lot for attendees. Employees and any students remaining on campus over the weekend should avoid parking in those areas. Shuttles will run from Kroger Field to the Red Mile infield.

Festival goers may also take advantage of other lots and structures on campus that are off permit control on weekends. This could include Press Avenue Garage and other lots and structures closest to the festival venue.
