Parking is at a premium in downtown Charlottesville!

There are many options to arrive at our festival:

  1. The Transit Center stands right outside of the Pavilion gates. All the buses and free trolley stop here.
  2. Within one block of the festival are two paid parking garages; rates just went down. One is at Water Street, the other at East Market Street.
  3. We have obtained permission to send overflow parking to the lot at CFA Institute, located at the corner of Lexington Ave and East High.

Handicapped Parking

We have a limited number of handicapped spaces reserved for festival visitors. These spaces are available at the corner of 7th St and East Market. Enter at 7th St entrance; see parking attendant for handicapped parking pass.


You can access the festival from three different  points:

  • Belmont Bridge
  • Market Street & 7th
  • The Mall

The tunnel entrance from Water Street will be closed for public access during the festival.
