Musikfest this saturday

Any tips for going to Musikfest this weekend? Can you bring bottled water? Is there a better place to park? Should we eat from the stands or are there any particular restaurants in Bethlehem we should visit? Thanks!

The whole thing is outside. Yes, bring your own water.

We usually park over on the South side near Starters restaurant www.startersriverport.com/Directions.aspx and then walk over the Fahy bridge to the Northside where the music venues are located.

I suggest you just eat the food at the festival. There is a huge selection and lots of the stands are from the local places anyway.

Make sure you get a map - http://www.musikfest.org/about/map.asp because once you get there and get sucked up by the crowds it's easy to get turned around.

There are information booths at most of the platz's that will tell you what is going on where, just look for them.

Have fun!

I'm probably a little too late for you, but maybe this will help others.

If you want to avoid the mess of parking downtown, you can park at the Musikfest shuttle lots outside of town (about a half mile from the casino). The parking itself is free but they charge a fee for the shuttle (I'm think it's $5pp, but I could be wrong about that).

I'm a local and I avoid downtown Bethlehem during Musikfest week unless I'm going to Musikfest itself. Traffic & parking become unnerving at times.

There are a ton of restaurants in downtown Bethlehem to choose from, some of whom have standards at the Fest. Some of our favorites in Bethlehem are Mama Nina's, Apollo Grill & Brewworks, but there are easily over a dozen good restaurants downtown, if not more.
