2019 Program & Stage Schedules


IngenuityFest is located at 5401 Hamilton Avenue. There is no entrance on Hamilton Avenue, only E 53rd Street and Marquette Avenue. There is ample free street parking as well as a $5 paid general parking lot at 5101 Lakeside Ave. - the lot is staffed and gated but park at your own risk, and less than a 5 minute walk from the 53rd street entrance. No overnight parking.


We encourage attendees to ride their bikes down to the event. Bike rack will be provided at the 53rd Street gate only.
The RTA One Line runs to the bus stop on St. Clair Avenue, less than a block from the Fest. We encourage our attendees to utilize public transportation to cut down on emissions and to save yourself from finding parking!



For people with disabilities arriving by shuttle, taxi, Uber, accessible transport van or private vehicle, a reserved ADA drop off zone will be located at the Main Festival entrance on 53rd street.

Accessible parking spaces will also be reserved in the Staff/VIP/Artist lot nearest the main 53rd street entrance on Hamilton. Additional off-site parking will be provided in a section of Ingenuity’s general audience parking. We continue to identify and address challenges to accessibility on our site, including providing elevator service to the 2nd floor and 3rd floor, patching asphalt, and widening doorways, and providing numerous ADA restrooms on the ground level.

For more accessibility information and questions about the Ingenuity experience for wheelchair users or the visually impaired, please contact Alyssa Perna at:


Ingenuity strives for a Zero Waste Event, and will provide composting and recycling services throughout the festival site in collaboration with Rust Belt Riders and Drink Local. Drink Tap. Bottled water will NOT be available for purchase at IngenuityFest – please bring your own reusable water bottle or purchase one of ours to fill up for free throughout the site.

Site Notes

Our event site is a former industrial site which does include rough surfaces, uneven flooring, areas of lower light and other potential hazards, and we have made efforts to identify and address areas of concern. The warehouse, which has been an active workspace for more 100 years, also maintains its "Cleveland Grit" and can be inherently a bit dirty. We recommend visitors wear sturdy shoes (rather than high heels or flip flops) and dress in layers, as our old warehouse can be very hot or chilly, depending on the weather! This year, we will have misting stations to cool off, which the little ones tend to love - so please be prepared for them to encounter an area where they may get wet!
