    Alpine Valley

    Im going to a concert this summer at Alpine Valley. Just looking for info abt parking, the venue etc. Thought I saw something abt parking was free, or you could purchase premium parking. Any info would be great. Thanks

    Re: Alpine Valley

    Parking should be free. Its been awhile since Ive been there, but I dont recall having to pay for parking. Its a dirt lot if I recall. Great place for a concert and depending on the show you will see some freaks of nature and hippies.

    Re: Alpine Valley

    Saw DMB there a few years ago. Great place for a concert as long as the weather is good. It does take FOREVER to get out of there unless they changed some things. If I remember there is basically one driving exit to get in and out of the parking lot.

    The ride out can be pretty fun. Dangerous, sometimes annoying, but fun. One of the great venues in America.

    Re: Alpine Valley

    Ya parking is built into the ticket price.
    Hopefully you have reserved seats, lawn is for noobs.

    If you want to get out easier park in the secondary lot.

    Alpine Valley Resort, Elkhorn, WI 53121 - Google Maps

    Make sure you know where you are going and have a good map. It is easy to get lost if you are staying in some small neighboring town.

    By far one of the best venues along with RR and The Gorge.

    Have fun.

    Re: Alpine Valley

    My favorite venue that I have been to (beats Red Rocks barely and heading to The Gorge for DMB this fall).
    Parking is built in to the ticket. Allow yourself plenty of time to arrive and leave. More than likely you'll park in the Yellow Lot. The best way out is to try to drive towards the Alpine Valley Lodge. That is the direction of VIP parking.
    OR, you can stay and tailgate.
    If you want out quick, park so you are facing out, and near an exit path.
    Enjoy the venue! I am catching Phish there in June, can't wait!

    Oh yeah, plus there are usually tons of MILFS/cougars whatever you want to call them there. I have gone to Tinley Park before as well but will be at Alpine Valley this year for the 1st time.

    Re: Alpine Valley

    I am not a fan of Alpine Valley. Way too big and not enough access to the site as it is in rural Wisconsin. If the place fills up, it holds ~50K and I think there is one entrance/exit into it.

    Have fun!
