Transportation & Parking FAQs
About Transportation & Parking:
Both On-Site and Off-Site parking lots have SOLD OUT at this time; if you did not purchase a parking pass in advance, please look for local parking in the town of Hunter.
There are two different options for parking at Taste of Country! You can park on-site, which is right on the mountain within a short walking distance to the Main Entrance. You can also park off-site, which is approximately 2 miles west of the mountain. We provide free roundtrip shuttles between the parking lot and festival grounds.
Our Accessible on-site parking is sold out. Please purchase a parking pass in either our on-site or off-site parking and reach out to our accessibility team for accommodations. Our team will do our best to park you as close as possible. We will provide ADA compliant shuttles from our off-site parking lot. Our accessibility team can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
Take the Hudson Line on Metro-North to Poughkeepsie Station. But before your trip, arrange for a Zipcar or taxi service to bring you directly to the mountain once you’ve arrived at the train station.

Depending where your car is parked for the weekend, you may or may not have access to your vehicle. Vehicles parked in our off-site parking lot will have shuttles running throughout the weekend for easy access. However, vehicles that are accompanying a Tent Only campsite will be parked in a separate off-site lot and will NOT be accessible throughout the weekend.
Taste of Country Festival cannot guarantee Uber/Lyft will be available during Taste of Country. Please do not rely on these ride share services.
In order to verify you are indeed a companion of someone staying in the Mountain Top campgrounds you must arrive with them to be allowed entry into the Mountain Top Companion Car lot.
