Show guests are encouraged to park in the city lots in downtown Paducah. Recently these city lots have not been full during AQS QuiltWeek. Free parking is available in the downtown city lots. In addition, there is paid parking on 4th Street between Harrison and Executive Blvd., and also on the river side of the floodwall using the Harrison Street entrance.

The Paducah trolley provides free rides through downtown, past the Quilt Museum, and back to the AQS Shuttle Stop. Want to catch a trolley? Just look for the Trolley Stop signs downtown or hop on at the AQS Shuttle Stop. The Paducah-McCracken Convention & Visitors Bureau and PATS provide this service. Park in the 2nd & Jefferson Street lot or the Farmer’s Market lot and meet the trolley at the AQS Trolley Stop signs.

The hotels providing the Hotel Shuttle Service to and from the convention center for the Fall 2019 QuiltWeek event will be giving their guests wristbands to allow them to ride the free shuttle. These participating hotels have paid for the buses on behalf of their guests. Anyone without a bracelet will not be allowed passage on the shuttle. Tour groups are encouraged to use their own bus to transport their clients to and from the convention center.

As always, AQS buses to and from the Dome Pavilion and Paducah School of Art and Design are free for all guests, as are the Park and Ride Shuttle, the National Quilt Museum Van, and the Downtown Trolley.
