Irish Festival at Historic Smithville is Saturday, October 12 and Sunday, October 13 from approx. 10am – 5pm. Setup for this festival begins on Friday. The parking lot will be a buzz with folks setting up for the festival. Half of the Village Greene parking lot will be used as a food court, an Irish market full of vendors and also a stage with live Irish music. There is limited parking for the public and our guests. This is why we have designated parking for our guests in the main lot near the Barn.
Saturday and/or Sunday arrivals to the village can be busy between the hours of 11am and 4pm. Please be patient and plan for extra travel time when coming between those hours. We will have parking held for you in the Village Greene lot and you can begin to arrive as early as 9am. Your room may not be ready but your parking will be.
We have hired a wonderful gentleman to keep watch over your spots. When you arrive to the entrance that says” lot full” please tell them the magic words…I am staying at the Colonial Inn! They will let you right in and you will be directed to orange cones where spots have been saved for you.
It is a possibility that traffic will be one way on Moss Mill Road for the festival so we have provided a map to prepare you for the only route onto Moss Mill and into our lot. Once you arrive to the entrance of our lot you will see a sign that says “lot full”….Again please know that this does not apply to you! You are a VIP this weekend and we have designated parking for you. Please refer to the map linked here to view how to enter if the roads are one way.
Regardless of where your room is located, you will be parking in this reserved area by the Barn shown as # 98 on our walking map. You will simply move one of the cones that is holding the spot , occupy the spot and then place the cone behind your vehicle.
