Directions and Parking

Piedmont Park, Atlanta, GA

We always encourage attendees to take MARTA to the Atlanta Dogwood Festival, but this year, it's more important than ever! Our shuttles from the Midtown and Arts Center stations to Piedmont Park will be increased for 2017 due to the traffic caused by the I-85 bridge collapse. See below for shuttle information, and give your MARTA Breeze Card a workout! 

The Atlanta Police Department will be heavily enforcing all illegal parking around Piedmont Park the weekend of the Atlanta Dogwood Festival. Residential Parking fines have substantially increased and vehicles parked within tow zones will be impounded. We encourage everyone to utilize MARTA or park in authorized parking lots in the area. Parkingpanda.com can assist with the parking.

The best way to get to the festival is on 

Look for the free "school bus" shuttle to bring you from MARTA to the festival!

Catch a shuttle to the festival from MARTA at the Arts Center Station (pickup is at the Bus Depot - 1255 W. Peachtree St. NW) or the Midtown Station (pickup is on Peachtree Place at the rear of the station) or head east from either station to walk to Piedmont Park. Shuttles will also pick up from the parking garage at 999 Peachtree St., Atlanta 30309. (A bus with wheelchair access will pick up from the 999 Peachtree parking garage, too and will drop off along Piedmont between 13th and 14th streets.)

Shuttle buses will drop you off at the curb cut out between 12th and 14th Streets at Piedmont Avenue- that's where you can also pick up a bus back to MARTA after your festival visit.
