Important Parking Information
On Saturday, December 7, Bethel will be hosting Festival of Christmas as well as a home playoff football game. While we're thrilled to be hosting these two outstanding events, it will present considerable parking challenges. If you will be on campus that afternoon, please note the following:
- The East and West parking lots will be reserved for Festival of Christmas attendees.
- Football fans will park at a nearby off-campus location and will be shuttled to the stadium. This shuttle is free and will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- Employees and Bethel community members are asked to park in the Seminary commuter lot. Check the shuttle schedule online for campus shuttle circulation times.
