Where do I park for IngenuityFest?

We’ve been getting a lot of questions of where to park for IngenuityFest this year – and fear not friend! There are OPTIONS:


Street parking is available throughout the neighborhood, but if you don’t feel like walking or you want your car parked in a tended lot we’ll be offering parking at 5000 Lakeside Avenue for just $3! It’s just around the corner from the Fest located at 5401 Hamilton Avenue for those who want to just put it in their GPS. As shown in the map above, to get to the festival take a right out of the parking lot and head east, then take another right on to East 53rd Street to get to our Festival entrance!

Basically, if you’re driving from the East or West, take I-90 West or East respectively and get off at the E 55th Street/Marginal Roads Exit. You’ll take E 55th all the way to Hamilton where you’ll make a right. From there, keep heading west, until you get to E 53rd, where you’ll take a right, and then a left about a block down the road onto Lakeside. The parking lot will be on your left.

PS: Are you one of the lucky ones who was sent a VIP pass? Artists, vendors, volunteers and sponsors will each receive a parking pass to our VIP lot off of Hamilton Avenue. You may not park in this lot without a pass.
