New Parking and Traffic Plan for Safer 40th Stokes Stomp
Annual Festival to Offer Shuttle Service

Parking and Traffic for the Stokes Arts 40th Stokes Stomp Festival on the Dan, scheduled for September 13 & 14 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) and Hilltop Market Tubing parking area (1039 NC 8 & 89 S) 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 beginning at 9am and ending at 8pm on Saturday, September 13 and beginning at 11am and ending on 7:30pm on Sunday, September 14. Due to the 10am Stomp Parade, Government Center Shuttle Service on Saturday, September 13 will not begin until 11:30am.

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.

“With Stokes Stomp attendance getting larger every year, and with our headliners and entertainment lineup scheduled for this year’s 40th Stomp celebration, changes had to be made to relieve the traffic congestion and make the festival safer for pedestrians and vehicles” stated Stomp co-chair Tory Mabe. “The changes will take some getting used to by the regular Stomp attendees, but will make the event much safer for everyone involved” he added.

The 40th 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. Download this press release.
