How TO FIND US
By car

The festival takes place at the home of The Purple Painted Lady® which is on 60 beautiful farming acres in the Finger Lake Region of New York.  (yes- that is polite and fancy way to say,….. you will be parking in a hay field!)  

IMPROVED ENTRANCE TO PARKING!!! We now have TWO entrances into the MAIN parking lot to expedite getting you off the road quicker!

 

One entrance for people coming from RT 31 heading south on Yellow Mills and another entrance for people coming from RT 21 heading north on Yellow Mills Road / Hackett Road. 

The parking will be located at 856 Yellow Mills Road, Palmyra NY 14522. Look for the boom of Pat’s Landscaping 60 feet up in the air with the huge American flag hanging from it on Yellow Mills Road……that will indicate you are almost to the show! Both the fine officers from the Town of Macedon and the Wayne County Sheriffs will be directing traffic. Please respect that only people with handicap passes will be permitted on the festival side parking lo.

Location

COMING FROM OUT OF TOWN?
BY PLANE

The airport you want to fly into is ROC.  (Rochester, NY)  The festival takes place in Macedon NY, but for GPS purposes, use Palmyra NY 14522.  This is a rural community.  We are about 35 minutes away from the airport.  If you are coming in from out of town and you do not know your way around, plan on it taking you 45 minutes.  LOL

Parking 

We have over 30 farming acres of parking.  Keep in mind though – this show is HUGE and it is held outside! And so is the parking – and we use 30 acres of our farmed hay fields for the parking. What does that mean? Maybe save the white carpeted Porsche Cayenne for the mall and drive your other vehicle.  And, please don’t wear high heels- or your brand new white Converse because you will be walking in a field.  

 

Is it horrible?  NO!  But we want people to be realistic.  Parking is managed by the Wayne County Sheriffs, the Wayne County Explorers, the Town of Macedon Police, South Macedon Fire Department and also the PalMac Rotary. We all do our best to get you in that parking space as quickly as possible.    If you have a question about the restriction on the parking- just call the Wayne County Sheriffs, or Macedon Town Police.
