midwayroback.thumbParking Prices in Gate 9 Lot: $10 –Cash only is accepted in our auto parking gates. There are no ATMs near Gate 9. Additional private lots are located throughout the neighborhood and are not affiliated with The Big E. Parking fees are set by the property owner and vary depending on the day and distance from the Fair.

Handicapped Parking (see prices above) – Our paved handicapped parking area is located inside the Gate 9 parking area at Gate 9A. The number of accessible spaces we offer far exceeds the code requirement, accommodating 172 vehicles. We also isolate a two-acre plot in the immediate vicinity of the gate where we can park up to 1,000 cars of handicapped patrons. Since we attempt to accommodate every handicapped vehicle, that area is vast and not totally paved.

This area also includes a covered drop-off area that may be used to drop-off/pick up handicapped, elderly or otherwise impaired passengers to wait while their car is parked.

Camper Parking – $20 (cash only)
A limited number of spaces are available for self-contained camper units on a first-come, first-served basis. An additional charge of $10 will apply for each extended awning or car occupying any adjacent space.
