Getting Around

Getting to Festival

Festival of the Arts attracts thousands from across the region to celebrate art in West Michigan. We hope you might try some alternative forms of transportation to get to Festival to help us reduce congestion. It’s also a great opportunity to see bike, walk or take the bus downtown! 

Here are some resources!







Parking at Festival

If you are driving down to Festival, we have a lot of parking all throughout downtown! However, many streets will be closed for the celebration, so plan a little extra time finding the best parking ramps. If you are mobility impaired, there are ramps very close to Festival for your convenience. For those who are not mobility impaired, please park a little further out and enjoy the sounds and smells as you walk into the celebration!

Here is a guide to the parking in Grand Rapids!
