Getting to and Parking at the Fest

If you are lucky enough to live close enough to walk to the Freret Street Festival, good for you!

If you drive, there is a free parking lot nearby on the corner of Magnolia and Cadiz Streets. Please be courteous to our neighbors when you park and do not block driveways. Be aware there is major construction still going on Jefferson Ave.

Via public transit, both the Freret #15 bus and Napoleon #24 bus will drop you off right here. Take the St. Charles Streetcar and transfer to the Napoeon bus or walk the 8 or so blocks. The Claiborne #16 bus is just 2-4 blocks away.
