    Parking Downtown

    Listed last for a reason, trying to park downtown is going to feel like a hangover without all the laughs. According to the Festival International website, the primary accessible location is the Buchanan parking garage which also offers spaces for handicapped parking on a first come first served basis. You might find private lots offering pay-to-park slots, but remember that most streets will be closed for festival. Head that way to attempt parking at the risk of your own sanity!
