Parking, Free Shuttle, Walking or Biking

There is parking available on several lots as well as a Parking Garage off Church Street, however, Lakeshore Road will be closed during the festival. It is extremely limited, so parking will be available at the Oakville GO Station, which is located west of Trafalgar Road between Cross and Cornwall. Free shuttle buses will be running both Friday night and all day Saturday. The Free Shuttles will depart every 15 minutes from the main bus terminal located at the North-East corner of the GO Station. Should you decide to walk the 2.5 km down Trafalgar Road, it should take you about 15 to 20 minutes. Riding your bike to the Festival is a great way to get to there, and there will be a secure bike corral set up.
