Queen City Mischief and Magic

September 22nd through September 24th, a three-day mystical extravaganza! Watch as Staunton is transformed, full of Mischief and Magic!


Where can I park?

IMPORTANT MESSAGE: Because we expect downtown parking facilities to fill up quickly, we’re encouraging Queen City Mischief & Magic guests to use satellite parking at one of the two locations: the Federated Auto Parts parking lot on Statler Blvd. and the old Dice’s parking lot on Frontier Drive.

The City will provide complimentary shuttle service from each satellite lot to downtown. Get directions to parking and details about shuttle service in our FAQs:
