Beginning at 4 p.m., unless you are a Yorktown Village resident, Riverwalk Landing business owner, or have an official pass—you will not be able to park in Historic Yorktown. Visitors attending the evening activities must park on the Yorktown Battlefield at the corner of Cook Road and Ballard Street which can be accessed by Cook Road or the Colonial Parkway. The Battlefield will remain open to the public until it reaches capacity. This includes visitors attempting to access town via Goosley Road, Old Williamsburg Road, the Colonial Parkway, and Mathews Street (by way of George Washington Memorial Highway).
The free air-conditioned Yorktown Trolley will run from approximately 10 a.m., following the parade, until 5 p.m.
Handicapped Parking and Special Assistance:
Transportation will be provided from Yorktown Middle School from 4-7 p.m. for those with disabilities and special needs, as well as one designated escort. You must be on site and checked in by 7 p.m. to get a ride.
Also, both passengers will be issued passes and must have them to return on the shuttle at the end of the evening. Drop-off will be at the Yorktown Waterfront, approximately 200 yards from the performance area. Due to limited shuttle capacity, we politely request all other individuals in the party take a separate vehicle to park at the Battlefield. The shuttle will make return runs from the Yorktown Waterfront to Yorktown Middle School from 9:45 – 10:30 p.m. It is important to note that once the shuttle parks at Riverwalk Landing, from 7:30 to 9:45 p.m., it will not make runs until after the fireworks show.
Other Important Notes:
Barbecue grills will be limited on July 4 to the National Park Service Beach Picnic Area with designated areas for the disposal of hot coals. All alcoholic beverages are prohibited.
