cars parked in field

Thatch Meadow Farm charges for parking for a few reasons.

First and foremost, Thatch Meadow Farm is within the small incorporated village of Head of the Harbor. Harbor Road is small, hilly and a winding road. We like to remain in the good graces of our neighbors and limit traffic as much as possible.

And once you arrive, you'll quickly learn that parking is extremely limited. We either have a lot of space for cars or we have a lot of space for the actual event.

A parking team is required to keep things orderly. This is an expense that we've found is well worth it because parking in an open field requires coordination. Leaving it up to common sense has proven to be a mistake.

Furthermore, we like to consider this an opportunity to be ecologically responsible and encourage carpooling. And if you take a ride sharing service like Uber or Lyft, there is no parking fee! We've also gone out of our way to provide WiFi in remote areas so that these services remain an option.

We completely understand the inconvenience of a parking fee. But we also want to reward those who contribute to our cause and keep these events moving as smoothly as possible. 

Thank you for your understanding.
