This year we will have a free shuttle that will skirt the perimeter of the festival foot print. The shuttle will start at the Elm Street Garage and will have stops at the Water/Kruger Stage, near the Wings Court Stage, 2 stops at the Zeiterion Theater (also the location of the Zeiterion Parking Garage) and then back to the Elm Street Garage. Stops are indicated on the map and will be clearly marked at the festival. Download the festival site map as a pdf.
