There is limited parking at the High School.  Most parking will be at the Yale Lot on Whitney Avenue, about a mile from the school.  Shuttle buses will be running; it is also a reasonable walk.

Driving Directions

From the north, south, east, or west, take Interstate I-91 North or South to the Willow Street exit (Exit 6) (note if you are on I-91 North this is a left-hand exit).  Take  a right at the end of the ramp onto Willow Street.

To Festival Site:  Take right at the second light onto Mitchell Drive. (The first light is an entrance back onto I-91.)

To Shuttle Parking:  Continue on Willow Street to Whitney Avenue.  Turn left onto Whitney, go six blocks to Humphry Street, and turn right into Yale Parking Lot

From Festival Site to Parking:  Continue on Mitchell Drive (name changes to Cold Spring Street) to Whitney Ave.  Turn left on Whitney Avenue, and go eight blocks to Humphry Street as above.

Public Transportation

Train: Amtrak and Metro-North serve the New Haven Union Station.  Wilbur Cross High School is about a 10-minute taxi ride from the station.

Bus:  Please see the CT Transit website for bus schedule information. On Saturday, you can take the M bus from downtown (Church & Center) directly to Wilbur Cross High School; it runs about every 45 minutes during the daytime hours. On Sunday, the best bet is to take the J “Whitney Avenue” bus north along Whitney Avenue to Cold Spring, and then walk east about 4/10 miles to the High School (Cold Spring becomes Mitchell after a couple blocks.); it runs about hourly during the daytime hours.
