NEW INFO: READ THIS! The American Legion parking lot in New Hope where we usually park and reload after the parade is where the festival is being held this year. So we recommend people park at the New Hope Solebury School at 182 W Bridge St, New Hope, PA 18938 and then either walk back to step-off (about 23 minutes) or coordinate with another driver to do a shuttle. We will run a few shuttles from 9:30 until 10:30 AM


We have arranged for bathroom use at St Andrew’s Church at the call location. However, we recommend you stop along the way, since there are a lot of us and only one bathroom…


We will again be gathering post-parade at HG Wood Fired Pizza restaurant for lunch with our sister bands from DC and Philadelphia! Arrive in your own groups and we will take the place over bit-by-bit! The address for HG Wood Fired Pizza is 6510 Lower York Rd., New Hope, PA
