Parking and Traffic Plan for Safer 44th Stokes Stomp
Annual Festival to Offer Shuttle Service

Parking and Traffic for the Stokes Arts 44th Stokes Stomp Festival on the Dan, scheduled for September 8 & 9 at Moratock Park in Danbury, will be a little different than in Stomp’s past in order to make the event safer for pedestrians and vehicle traffic.

Instead of the previous Stomp parking of first come first serve at Moratock Park, this year’s event will feature shuttle service from the Stokes County Government Center (1014 Main St) near the intersection of Sheppard Mill Road. Digital Road Signs will direct Stomp visitors to these parking areas. Once parked, visitors will wait to load the shuttle at a designated location and then be transported to the Stomp at Moratock Park. Four shuttle vehicles will run every 15/20 minutes.

To relieve traffic congestion on Sheppard Mill Road, parking at Moratock Park will be limited to handicapped, Stokes Stomp entertainers, vendors, volunteers, and emergency personnel. Drivers without a Moratock Parking Pass will have the option of circling through the park to drop off, but will not be allowed to park unless a valid parking pass is visible. Traffic personnel will be at parking lots and intersections to assist with parking concerns and directions.

The 44th Stokes Stomp Traffic and Parking plan is a coordinated effort by the Danbury Fire Department, Stokes County Sheriff’s Department, Stokes EMS, Stokes Fire Marshal, Stokes Economic Development and Stokes Arts.
