Solstice Chase 2016 - Parking Info

Above is a visual overlay of our parking lots for race day - details are outlined below...
Thank you for your interest in the 2016 Solstice Chase - a world class fat bike race, community festival, and celebration of Winter!  For the full scoop on the Solstice Chase, go to www.SolsticeChase.com.  Please also note that this year's event is at a new venue - with the start & finish at the Dalles House Bar & Lounge!  

Parking at large events is often a challenge, but we're committed to making it easy for 2016 Solstice Chase attendees!

First off, as you approach the venue, you'll notice our friendly volunteers in orange vests who will direct you to a sweet parking spot.  Also, be on the lookout for big green signs directing you to the closest available parking spot.  

Following are points that we ask you to keep in mind as you arrive on Saturday:
  • There is NO PARKING in the normal Dalles House Bar parking lot on event day.  There is also NO EVENT PARKING at the Polk County Info Center.
  • Our main event parking lot is to the south of the Dalles House Bar & Lounge - and in front of the Dalles House Motel.  Volunteers will be awaiting you here to assist you in finding a parking spot.
  • Once the main parking lot at the Dalles House is full, people will be directed about 1/4 mile south on Hwy 35 to park in the Alliance Church of the Valley's main parking lot.  
  • We expect to be able to fit close to 400 cars in these lots, but if these all fill up we suggest you find a parking spot to the north of Hwy 8 - toward downtown St. Croix Falls.
Finally note that one of our hotel specials for the event is right at the venue!  The option of waking up right at the venue with your car already in the ultimate parking spot - and not having to drive through the snow sounds pretty good, right!?!  Check out the Dalles House Motel (and the Holiday Inn Express) special event rates HERE!

See the above map for a rough lay of the land as to where these parking lots are.
