Saturday, July 12, 2014
9 am – 4 pm
Cost to Attend:
It’s free! Your donation helps make it happen.
You can park just about anywhere in town. Parking on the shoulder of Hwy 20, east of Sisters is not permitted. All of the downtown streets are open to street parking. Please don’t block alleys or driveways. There is a shuttle from the high school that runs all day long. Just follow the signs for “Shuttle Parking” when you get to town.
Disabled Parking is designated in the parking lot at the Sisters Elementary School and the parking lot between City Hall and Sisters School Administration building. The lots are on the east and west side of Locust St. on the east end of Sisters.
Pack your patience! Getting 12,000 people in and out of Sisters does cause some traffic back ups.
Cascade Ave will be closed to east/west traffic on Quilt Show Day beginning around 6:00 am. All the north/south cross streets will be open to traffic and parking. Through traffic will be routed around town on Locust St. and Barclay Drive until 5 pm. Ample parking is available on all city streets. Parking is NOT permitted on Hwy 20 east of Sisters. For a map of the traffic route and more detailed traffic information click here.
Wheelchairs are allowed, but unfortunately there are no vendors who rents them in town.
