The sun sets on the last day of the York Fair

The City of York provides parking permits for residents that live on the designated blocks/streets during the York Fair, which runs from September 9th to September 18th.

In order to identify a resident’s vehicle, a permit system was developed. All resident’s living within the established area, wishing to park their vehicles on the street during the fair must have a permit properly displayed to avoid receiving a parking fine.There is a limit of three (3) permits for each household. Please bring proof of residency and registration cards for each vehicle needing a permit.

Permit is valid only within one block of the holders residence. Parking outside of your immediate area could result in a fine. Motorcycles WILL be issued a permit. Motorcycles should park on the street and not the sidewalk.

Street sweeping in the residential fair parking area will be suspended during the fair.

All normal parking laws remain in effect. The parking permit does not give you permission to park illegally.

Permits are available Monday, August 22, 2016 thru Sunday, September 18, 2016. Permits will be distributed from the Revenue Office in City Hall located at 101 South George Street weekdays from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. and from the Police Department (located at 50 West King Street) weekdays from 5:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m.


Permit parking is in effect 24 hours a day for the duration of the fair.

Parking Enforcement Officers will be on patrol during this time.

Permit must be displayed on the drivers side rear window so it is visible from the street. We ask that you tape the permit to the window.

Permit must remain with the vehicle it was issued to.The registration number on the permit must be the same as the license plate on the vehicle. Permits cannot be transferred from one vehicle to another. Permits must be properly displayed by midnight September 9, 2016 or the vehicle may be subject to a parking citation.

Residents or non-residents requesting a visitor’s permit or who may have other questions must contact Mary Shoff, Parking Enforcement Supervisor at 717-849-2230.
