Parking

We talked to Ryan Drew with Park Macon, who says that concert-goers should utilize the parking garage on 440 Mulberry Street if they plan to be downtown throughout the night. 

440 Mulberry Garage Street is free on Saturdays and Sundays and any time after 7:00 PM from Monday through Friday.  

In addition, there are currently several streets downtown that does not require payment, such as Cherry Street Plaza and Plum Street. However, always reference the signage as many still have 2-hour time limits consistently enforced.

You can also pay the parking meter with your mobile phone through the PassportParking app.

Drew says concert goers should also try to park early if they can because spots fill up fast.

Safety

This is the first year Bragg Jam will be back full force with it's concert crawl since COVID arrived on the scene in 2020, and there are necessary measures in place that are essential for having fun while keeping safe.

Bragg Jam is an event designed to promote music and fun, and many concertgoers can jump from set to set and keep dancing and moving to the beat for hours at a time.

This can lead to dehydration, so attendees should stay hydrated and bring water or purchase some during or in between sets. 

There will also be many opportunities to purchase alcohol, and since Bragg jam can get crowded and busy, it is essential to keep your cup with you at all times. 

Don't let anyone hold your drink, or set it on the bar and leave it to go dance and come back.
