Parking in New Haven is convenient and easy when you use the Festival's discount parking voucher and recommended lots!
Downtown New Haven is pleasant and very walkable, and most Festival venues are within walking distance of each other. We recommend that you park near your last event of the day for a quick walk to your car after performances and events. Note: most of our in-person programming this year will be on the New Haven Green.
Recommended Parking Locations:
NH Parking Authority lots:
1 Temple Street, New Haven
Open 24 hours, 7 days/week
*CHECK BACK LATER FOR AN UPDATE*
Metered street parking in downtown New Haven is available, but limited: parking in a garage is often cheaper and easier than trying to find street parking! Check all posted signs and be sure that you have paid your meter accordingly. Also check for temporary restrictions to street parking near your vehicle: summertime often brings construction to the area, and some parking regulations may be temporarily changed.
Please note: Metered parking is in effect until 9PM, Monday through Saturday. There is a 2 hour limit from 8AM-5PM, and no limit after 5PM. No parking restrictions on Sunday.
More parking options & information available through the City of New Haven's parking information resource, Park New Haven.
Please pay careful attention to posted signs and rates for parking. We have made an effort to ensure that information listed here is accurate and up-to-date, however the Festival cannot be held responsible for changes to hours and policies at garages and on streets.
Parking at Arts & Ideas is generously supported by Park New Haven.
