This applies to both Vendors and the General Admission Public.
If you travel by GPS, enter “1190 Cornell St, Abbotsford”, (or Tradex) but stay on Mt. Lehman Road, and do not exit into Approach / Cornell St since you will arrive in front of the Tradex building where there is no access to the parking lot.
Parking is in the main Tradex parking lot that is accessed directly off Mt. Lehman Road, and immediately opposite the Tradex building. The fee is
$ 8 / vehicle / day, to be paid after you park at one of the several pay stations at the east side of the parking lot, and opposite the Tradex building. You will need to enter your license plate number.
Not all of the machines were identical in 2022. The variants include: payment by credit or debit card or coins (no paper money). In 2022 not all of the machines accepted “tap”.
You can pay your parking fee online and in advance @ $ 7 / day.
Additional parking information (including RV parking) is on the Tradex website. https://www.fvtradex.com/Attending-Parking
Vendors – Arriving at the Site
Please note that all vendors are required to enter the site through the main parking lot that is accessible from Mt. Lehman Road and immediately opposite the Tradex Building.
Parking is $ 8 / day (there is a two-day option) at any of the several pay stations located inside the parking lot and opposite the main entrance to the Tradex building.
Payment is by credit or debit card or exact coins at some machines (no paper currency). You need to enter your license plate number.
If you are parking a towing vehicle + trailer you should do so in the south overflow (gravel) parking lot. For that lot, you pay for only the towing vehicle, and not both as in the case in the main parking lot. You have to pay the parking fee for both days. Oversized vehicles (RVs) are also to be parked in the south overflow parking lot.
Please note that the event will be open to the public 1 PM – 9 PM on Friday and 8 AM – 3 PM on Saturday. At 9:00 PM on Friday you are permitted to drive vehicles off the site. If you are going to bring them back, or bring more items for sale on Saturday, vehicles can enter the site at 7:00 AM, but must be off the site by 8:00 AM, when the site is opened to the Public.
