A FREE shuttle service will be provided from two designated lots near the Festival. The shuttles will run non-stop during festival hours. Please keep in mind that during the hours of 11:00am – 2:00pm, we experience high traffic volume onto the island. Please allow extra time as you may have to a longer wait time to get onto a shuttle. Look for our amazing volunteer parking crew to direct you in our designated lots.
Please note that parking in non-designated lots may cause your vehicle to be towed. All bus shuttles follow the same route – they are not assigned to a specific lot.
Lot Locations & Bus Route: Free parking at Lowes Foods (7278 Beach Dr.) and Odell Williamson Municipal Airport (6080 Beach Dr. ). The Ocean Isle Pier (1 W 1st St.) offers parking for a fee.
Wheelchair Accessibility: There will be limited handicapped parking at 2 W. 3rd St. Look for event signage. The NC Oyster Festival is navigable for wheelchairs.
