From Interstate 74
Morton is located between Peoria and Blooomington at the intersection of interstates 74 and 155. To get to our festival grounds, take I-74 Exit 102 and go south to the stoplight at Jackson Street. Turn left onto Jackson Street and continue to the 4-way stop at Main Street. Turn right onto Main Street and continue to the stoplight at Jefferson Street. Festival grounds are to your left along Jefferson Street.
A large parking lot owned by the Apostolic Christian Church is located on Jefferson Street, right across the street from the Festival Grounds. This lot is available for festival goers and includes a handicapped parking area. There are several additional free parking lots and some on street parking available throughout the downtown area.
A limited number of handicapped parking spots for the festival can be found in the Apostolic Christian Church parking lot, located on Jefferson Street across from the Main Festival Grounds. We also have a shuttle service that loops from the Field Shopping Center to the Main Festival Grounds on Adams Street that offers an option for festival guests who have difficulty walking far distances.
Shuttle Service (Saturday from 8am - 5pm)
A free shuttle service, provided by Riverview Senior Living Community, is available on the Saturday of festival from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. The Shuttle stops at the south end of the Field Shopping Center and Adams Street, behind Jefferson School and near the Pumpkin Grille, on the Main Festival Grounds. The shuttle travels continuously between these two stops, so wait time is typically 20 minutes or less.
