Event Directions and Parking Locations
We strongly recommend taking the MTS Trolley to get to the festival. The GREEN LINE stops right at the western edge of the event area, between Cedar St and Beech St (the “County Center/Little Italy” stop). Walk east on Beech to begin your exploration. Click here for a trolley route map.
ESET Building at 610 W. Ash
Park at 610 W. Ash, underground. This garage, operated by Ace Parking, is under the ESET building. Use the entrance on Ash Street.
Cedar & Kettner Blvd. Parking Structure
In 2015 a large parking structure opened at the corner of Cedar and Kettner Blvd. Enter the garage on Kettner Blvd. just south of Cedar Street. This garage is operated by Ace Parking.
From the North
Take Interstate 5 South. Exit Sassafras/Kettner and continue south into the heart of the festival. Surface lots and street parking are available all around the event. On Sunday, there is no charge for meters. Please note that Little Italy has many of the “park/pay/display” boxes so if you do not see a meter be sure to check all around your vehicle for this box.
From the South
Take Interstate 5 North. Exit Hawthorne St/Airport Exit. Keep left at the fork in the ramp. At this point look for parking on the outskirts of the event.
You can get online driving directions using any one of the many map sites on the internet. Click here for a link to a map of the Little Italy neighborhood.
