Traffic advice for visitors heading to The Big E

Mass Appeal

(Mass Appeal) – The Big E attracts well over a million visitors each year. With all of those visitors coming to the fairgrounds in West Springfield, traffic is always a concern. Cliff Hedges, Director of Safety and Security and Dennis King of King Ward Coach Lines give us some tips.

Cliff encourages drivers to use a little extra patience due to road construction on the Morgan Sullivan bridge. If you do park on-site, Gate 9 parking holds about 7,000 spots. There are also lots of parking in nearby private lots.

Dennis tells us about some shuttle options to make a smoother trip without paying for parking. There are free, hourly shuttle buses leaving from MGM Springfield and Union Station. For more information, visit

On weekends, you can also utilize lots at Holyoke Community College and the Enfield Square parking for a $5 round-trip shuttle ride.
