Traffic and Alternate Routes for Exiting

Every effort has been made to expedite traffic flow in and around Blossom, and for most concerts, you will experience little delay. Occasionally, however, high attendance strains the capacity of the rural roads around Blossom. If traffic becomes congested after a concert, we suggest using an alternate route through the Cuyahoga Valley which adjoins Blossom to the north and west. This well-marked route may speed your trip and is accessed by turning right on Steels Corners Road out of Blossom's main entrance.
