Top Tips to Make the Most of Attending
Plan your Parking in Advance
Did you know that between street parking and lots and garages, downtown has 9,000 parking spaces? Some lots even offer free nights/weekends. Click here to view all of the available parking in Downtown. We recommend PARK Roanoke lots and garages because they usually have lower rates than privately owned parking.
Save Time for the Farmer's Market
The Historic Roanoke City Market is the oldest continuously operating open-air market in the Commonwealth of Virginia. It's open 7 days a week, but the busiest day is Saturday. This means Market Street will be packed with produce, plants, and arts & crafts vendors who all handmake or locally grow their products from 8am until 2pm.
You may come for the deals, but make a whole day of coming Downtown. If you aren't finished shopping, we have plenty of retailers. Virginia Made Saturday is the same day and you can shop local artisans and makers.
