PLEASE NOTE: For the safety of our volunteers and fairgoers, masks will be required on bus transportation for everyone whether vaccinated or unvaccinated. See COVID information

Parking in the Durham Fair operated lots is $5 per day/single entry (OR $10 for unlimited entry during the fair weekend with advance purchase).

There is no visitor parking available directly on the fairgrounds. School buses transport visitors from the parking lots to the fairgrounds. They are usually very full, and therefore are not able to accommodate large strollers, wagons, and other bulky items (small collapsible strollers are typically fine). If you do need to bring bulkier items to the Fair, it may be easier for you to use one of the privately-operated parking lots within walking distance of the fairgrounds.
