Carpool, Park and Shuttle, hike or bike to the festival!
On site parking is only available for carpools of 3 or more, and for accessible parking for people with handicap tags.
The Main Parking Lot and The Festival Shuttle: Everyone else, take the FREE Shuttle by following these directions to the festival’s main parking lot located at the intersection of Holtshire Rd. and Fairman Rd, just 1.5 miles from the Festival site. Shuttle buses leave approximately every 10 minutes and are a 7 minute ride to the festival.
Many thanks to Franklin Regional Transit Authority for shuttle bus services!
New This Year!: Hiking enthusiasts can park at the shuttle lot, then enjoy a moderately strenuous 45 minute hike from the shuttle lot to the festival site. The 1.33 mile trail climbs fairly steeply from the shuttle area, where you’ll follow a moderately hilly trail that joins up with the Chestnut Hill trail system (there is an elevation gain of 663 feet). Or, take the trail back to the lot after a day enjoying the festival.
Find a Carpool: Join the RideBuzz Rideshare program and find folks to carpool with. It’s easy and free to sign up.
Bike It: Grab a mountain bike or road bike and head over to the festival. A bike parking station is available onsite. Bikers are responsible for their equipment, please bring your own lock. Mountain bikers looking for a serious ride will enjoy coming from Wendell Depot, one way trip roughly 3.25 mi. Expect to hop off your bike at a few wet spots or spots with thicker groundcover.
