Where do i park once i get there? Is there a fee?
There is Parking for the BIG E on site or there is parking outside of it all along the street. Parking is 10.00 for all day. I prefer outside easier to get out when you want to leave.
I believe campers are only permitted for vendors who have registered. There is a Walmart in Westfield 6 miles away for overnight.
Can you bring campers and camp overnight?
I prefer to park on one of the perpendicular streets near the entrance in a private lot, easier to get out of.
They will guide you into their vast parking grounds . Do not be afraid . 10 bucks is the going rate .I have never had a problem. We parked at entrance 9 yesterday 9/22/2017
Yes, parking is everywhere, $10 is normal, but if you want to park close to the main gate it will cost you $15. We park close by so that we can bring our purchases to the car and not have to carry them around (they will stamp your hand to let you get back in the fairgrounds).
If you can go the earlier the better. If you park inside the gates fee is $10. They did have people with gold carts to take to to the entrance gate. Also many businesses and private properties had parking for anywhere between $5-15, but then some a distance to walk. Find gate 9 and that is the main and handicap parking. Was pretty easy. We used Waze and got us right there.
If you go early it's easier to par near on of the gates easy in easy out it cost $10.00 to park for the day
Follow the signs for Gate 9 for parking on the Big E grounds for $10 cash only. Handicap parking is inside Gate 9 at 9A. You can also find private parking in the neighborhood across the street ranging from $10 to $20 depending on how close it is to the main entrance of the fair. Private parking is in local business of in people's home yards/driveways. There also is parking just across the bridge in Agawam at Rockies hardware for $5-$10. The walk to the fair may be a few more minutes. Good luck!
