Location and Parking:

Parking is at a premium this year. You can skip the stress of parking by using the light rail (the Indian School stop is just a few steps away from the park), but if you absolutely must drive over, you will not be able to park near the festival grounds. parking is available in the other 3 parking lots (Click here for a map) or for a $5 fee at nearby 4041 North Central.
