ADA/Handicapped Parking Procedure
It is our policy and desire to accommodate those individuals with special needs. We provide a special parking lot designated for ADA/Handicapped Parking. However, we do not issue any Hamvention ADA/Handicapped parking tags. Instead, the ADA/Handicapped parking area follows the same guidelines and requirements of Greene County Ohio. Parking rules are governed by an official State issued hanger or vehicle tag for ADA/Handicapped parking. The number of spots is limited and first come-first served. Violations of ADA/Handicapped parking laws are subject to local Law Enforcement fines and towing at the owner’s expense.

PLEASE NOTE – YOUR STATE HANGER OR PLATES MUST BE VISIBLE WHEN ENTERING OR YOU WILL BE SENT TO GENERAL PARKING.
