Winston-Salem, N.C. (September 18, 2019) — New at the Dixie Classic Fair is VIP reserved parking in the Fireworks Parking Lot at 2885 Shorefare Drive NW, between 27th and 30thStreets. The Fair has partnered with the FanPark app to offer $16 per day reserved parking to supplement its regular parking for the event (11AM to 8PM daily, limited to 200 slots per day). Parking in the VIP lot requires advanced reservations.


“The true benefit of this application is that you can purchase your parking in advance; and GPS straight to the parking lot,” said Robert Mulhearn Facility and Venue Manger for the Winston-Salem Fairgrounds.  “You don’t have to exchange any cash. You drive straight to the parking lot, walk across the street in to the Fair and avoid any traffic jams.”


The lot opens daily at 11AM. All vehicles must be out of the lot by 8:15PM.


General Parking is available at the LJVM Coliseum lot and BB&T Field parking lots owned and operated by Wake Forest University. These lots charge $10 on all Fair days except October 12. The address is 2825 University Parkway. On October 12, these lots charge $20 because of Wake Forest vs Louisville football. Parking for $10 is available at Winston-Salem First Baptist Church at 1142 Long Road and includes shuttle transportation.


The Dixie Classic Fair runs from October 4 – 13 at the Winston-Salem Fairgrounds.  Advance Tickets and Advance Sale Strates Ride Coupons to North Carolina’s second largest agricultural Fair are on sale through Ticketmaster and the Fair’s website,, through October 3 at 11:59PM.
