All activities will be held in Memorial Hall on the JMU campus. (This is on the west side of I-81.)  Memorial Hall is located at 395 South High Street between Grace Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Way (formerly Cantrell Avenue).  It's easy to locate since it is a former high school.  The full street address is 395 South High Street, Harrisonburg, VA 22801.

Memorial Hall

Directions from I-81

IF COMING FROM THE SOUTH, take the Port Republic Road exit (Exit 245) and turn LEFT onto Port Republic Road.  Go past the entrance to the university and straight at the light at Port Republic Road and South Main Street.  Port Republic Road becomes Maryland Avenue at this point.  At the next set of lights, turn right onto South High Street.  Stay in the left lane.  Turn left at the second light into the Memorial Hall parking lots.

IF COMING FROM THE NORTH, take the exit for 33 West/E Market Street (Exit 247B). Get into left lane as soon as possible.  Turn left onto Martin Luther King Jr. Way (the first set of lights after exiting 1-81, also called Historic Cantrell Ave).  Go straight on Martin Luther King Jr. Way, through 4 sets of lights (past CVS and portions of the JMU campus and crossing over South Main/Rt.11).  At the fifth set of lights, Martin Luther King Jr. Way dead ends into South High/Rt. 42. At this intersection, Memorial Hall is directly in front of you. Cross South High Street and enter the Memorial Hall parking lots.

When you arrive at Memorial Hall, park in the parking lots to the right of the building (between Memorial Hall and the baseball stadium).  You will want to enter Memorial Hall from the side of the building that faces these parking lots (Entrance B).    Look for signs and volunteers in bright yellow shirts to help you find packet pickup and check-in.
