Parking: We would love if everyone could park at the Mansion, but frankly, there is just not enough room! 

In addition, it was a very dangerous situation with parked cars and pedestrians along Eastside Highway, so the Bitterroot Celtic Society has arranged for FREE parking at the Hamilton High School parking lot and the Ravalli County Fairgrounds north parking lot, and hired a bus company to run shuttles non-stop back and forth between Hamilton High School and the Fairgrounds and the Mansion. We highly suggest parking in one of these free lots and riding the free shuttle bus to the Mansion.

In order to monitor the number of cars parking at the Mansion, there is a fee to park and a parking pass is required. Mansion parking is $10 per car, $5 per motorcycle, and is good for both days. You can purchase parking passes online in advance below, or at the gate. At the gate is cash only, please. Handicap Parking on the Mansion grounds is free and does not require a parking pass, with appropriate placard.  

Please keep in mind if you are dropping off or picking up someone, please arrange to do so at the High School or Fairgrounds and to ride the shuttle. Without a parking pass, your vehicle will not be permitted on the Mansion grounds.
