Deals and tips for less stress at SunFest

SunFest's 2016 lineup is creating a lot of excitement, but finding parking and shelling out cash can leave festival-goers feeling stressed.

To help out, SunFest is offering special parking deals, and organizers have also partnered with Uber to make getting around downtown easier during the music fest.

Parking can be purchased online, in advance for a discounted rate. SunFest's parking page allows drivers to pick from six different lots.

The cheapest is the Palm Beach County Judicial Center lot. One-day tickets can be bought for $8 and three-day passes for Friday, Saturday and Sunday can be purchased for $20.

"To get parking for three days for $20 is probably one of the best deals you can find," says SunFest spokeswoman Melissa Sullivan.

For anyone who doesn't want to park, Uber deals are also being offered. New users can receive up to a $20 first ride for free by using the code "SUNFEST16". Those already using the app can visit one of SunFest's three information center tents for a $10 off code each night.

One adult one-day past costs $45. Those who plan on attending SunFest more than once can receive discounts by paying for a two-day pass, which costs $70 or a five-day pass, which costs $90.

Outside of the festival, nearby restaurants like Bar Louie and Tin Fish are offering special food and happy hour deals. Restaurant owners say the easiest days to get a table will be Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

On Saturday and Sunday, Avocado Grill owner Julien Gremaud says, "It's basically the restaurant is full from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m."
