Parking Information Announced for October 22 State Fair Game

Due to the annual South Carolina State Fair, those Gamecock Club members with seasonal reserved parking in the Lexington Medical Center (LMC) Fair Park will not have access to their pre-assigned parking location for the South Carolina – Texas A&M football game on Saturday, Oct. 22. Neither a hanging or digital pass is included in those impacted donors’ season parking for this game, as fairgrounds parking will be open to the public assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis only.

The Fairgrounds parking lot will open at 9 am for both fair and football parking. Parking is $20 in the LMC Fair parking lot with cash and credit cards being accepted. Vehicles will be parked on a first-come, first-served basis, with fairgrounds employees handling all parking-related matters in that lot. Vehicles will be allowed to enter through either Gate 6 off Assembly Street, or Gate 10 off Bluff Road. Gates 7, 8 and 9 will be used as exit gates only. No tents, awnings, chairs or grills will be allowed. Gamecock Club hanging tags or digital passes will not be accepted or scanned for entry.

Patrons with a handicap parking tag will enter the fairgrounds through Gate 6 or Gate 10. Handicapped parking is available in designated spots only and on a first-come, first served basis. There is no handicapped shuttle available to the stadium from the fairgrounds.

University of South Carolina Parking Lots including the Garnet Society Lot, Gamecock Park and Woodstock will open at noon. The Armory lot will open at 2:30 pm.

Single game parking will not be available in Gamecock Park or Woodstock as both lots are sold out.

Free shuttle service will run from Colonial Life Arena, where parking will be available for $10 per vehicle. Fans wishing to utilize the shuttle from CLA can also park in the parking garages close to arena, including Discovery Plaza, Innovista, Department of Transportation (901 Park Street) and Horizon. Shuttles will run only from the CLA and not from these parking garages. The shuttle service begins at 4:30 pm and runs for 90 minutes after the game. Shuttle drop off location will be on Rosewood Drive in front of the State Fair and fans will then walk from Rosewood Drive to Bluff Road to make their way to Williams-Brice Stadium. Please be aware that fan shuttles and ADA shuttles are expected to experience significant delays due to traffic pre and post-game.

The State Fair admission gates will open at 10 am. The State Fair will not honor game tickets for entry. Everyone who wishes to attend the fair must purchase an individual fair ticket for entry.

Please note that traffic delays around the stadium and fairgrounds are anticipated. Fans are encouraged to arrive as early as possible on Saturday to help alleviate the heavy traffic congestion that will occur closer to game time.

Game time for the matchup between the Gamecocks and Aggies is scheduled for 7:30 pm on Saturday, October 22.
