Ann Arbor Announces 
New Parking Solution for 2012 Art Fair


DETROIT — Enjoying Ann Arbor’s iconic annual Art Fair is easy.  Surviving the parking and traffic woes caused by the more than 500,000 attendees, however, is another story.  Fortunately, Ann Arbor based Park n Party®, the leading provider of online parking reservations for local sporting and community events, announced that it is offering Art Fair goers the opportunity to make advanced parking reservations in Ann Arbor’s downtown parking structures. 

Through a partnership with the Downtown Development Authority (DDA) of Ann Arbor and Republic Parking, whose six facilities are within shouting distance of the fabled Art Fair, Park n Party offers art-lovers reserved parking solutions for less than $18 a day.

“We may not be able to control the weather, but with the help of the DDA, we can make parking at the Art Fair a lot easier!” said Taylor Bond, co-founder of Park n Party. “Through Park n Party, Art Fair goers don’t have to stress out about where to park, the issue is resolved before they leave home.”

Park n Party’s partnership with the DDA and Republic Parking to extend its services to the 2012 Art Fair comes on the heels of a successful inaugural year where the company gave University of Michigan football fans the opportunity to reserve parking spaces, tailgate spots, and other amenities.

“Everyone should be able to enjoy their favorite events in Ann Arbor without the issue of searching for parking,” said Jason Kapica, co-founder of Park n Party.  “The DDA and Republic Parking have been great to work with.  They jumped at the opportunity to offer a convenient solution to fair goers.” 

The 2012 Ann Arbor Art Fair from July 18 – July 21 is just the most recent venue added to the Park n Party lineup.  Expansion plans are in the works for Detroit, East Lansing, MI, Columbus, OH, and Madison, WI.

By visiting, University of Michigan football fans (individuals and groups) can get a head start on the 2012 season and reserve their parking spaces and tailgate spots on a game-by-game or full-season basis.
