Where to Park

There will be NO parking at Shelburne Sugarworks in order to allow for plenty of space around racers and their fans. Instead, there will be ample parking just east of Shelburne Sugarworks at the practice fields for the Buccaneers. Look for the Shelburne Sugarworks sign at the entrance to the field. It's only a 4-minute walk to the sugarhouse from this parking lot, but please be careful walking. Walk as close to the edge of the road and stay alert. Directions to the race can be found near the bottom of this page.
