Directions and Parking
Turners Falls is in Montague, MA
The race will be held at Unity Park, in Turners Falls, just across the bridge from Route 2, which also provides easy access from I-91.
On race day the Gill-Montague Bridge, connecting to Route 2, is ONE WAY coming into town (going south only). Please plan accordingly.
Getting to the Race
Those coming from I-91 will want to use Rt. 2 east, and then take the Gill Montague Bridge south into Turners Falls. If you are racing the check-in point is at the end of the bridge, on your left. Spectators should find available street parking.
Those coming from the east will take Rt. 2 and follow the directions above. Going home should take Millers Falls Road east to Montague City and grab Rt 2 from there.
- Those coming from Greenfield can take the canal bridge near Stop & Shop.
Use the map below to see the these bridges. You can also go to www.MontagueBridges.info for driving directions out of town if you need to get to Route 2 or I-91.
Parking for spectators
Spectators will be able to park on any side street that has valid parking. Please do not park in driveways or at fire hydrants. This is a neighborhood, just like yours. Be respectful.
After the Derby
There are numerous Restaurants and Bars in Montague. Here are some we recommend:
Burrito Rojo, at 50 3rd Street, is a nice family-oriented Mexican food place with many local beers. Go have a meal and have some more derby fun over there.
- The Rendezvous, right next door, at 78 3rd Street. Great food, full bar, ample seating. The Voo, as the locals call it, is also the sole beer vendor at the Derby. Look for them near the finish line.
The Millers Pub, on Bridge Street in Millers Falls, is a great local bar with excellent prices and a pool table. If you're heading out of town in an easterly direction, you can stop by here before you cross over to Rt 2.
