FREE SHUTTLE at the Scottsboro BBQ Festival

Park and Enjoy a Free Ride to the Downtown Square!

Parking on the Downtown Square is limited, so we kindly ask you to consider making it easy on yourself! Park at one of our six convenient parking lots where we will have a round-the-clock free shuttle service operating from 9am-5pm. This is a great way to park at one location, take the shuttle to the BBQ Festival, then take another shuttle to shop local merchants before returning to your original starting point.

Red Line - Roundtrip service on Willow Street from Unclaimed Baggage Center to the Downtown Square.

Green Line - Roundtrip service down Broad Street from Patches Merchant Emporium, Tractor Supply, Farmers Home Furniture and Akins Furniture to the Downtown Square.

Blue Line - Roundtrip service on Scotts Street from Caldwell Elementary, Scottsboro City Schools/Carter Gym, PNC Bank and Scottsboro Electric Power Board to the Downtown Square.
