Parking

There is no designated event parking. Parking is available around Fiesta Gardens and Lady Bird Lake at no cost, but it is limited and first-come, first-served. Parking is available on the streets around and surrounding Fiesta Gardens. We especially encourage attendees to try and park WEST of the venue if at all possible to avoid the neighborhood. West of the venue there is parking on both sides of the street on Comal immediately West of Martin Middle School. Martin Middle School has lots on the North side and at the intersection of Comal and Nash Hernandez St. There is also a lot on the Northeast corner of Martin Middle School. Heading East on Nash Hernandez Blvd from Comal St. there is parking on one side of the road on the lower and upper sections of the road, and to the end of Nash Hernandez Blvd. Further West from the venue Waller Street has parking as well. If you park in the blocks surrounding the venue on Riverview, Haskell, Holly or the cross streets like Chalmers, Chicon, Lynn and Anthony, keep in mind you are in a residential neighborhood. Street parking in the surrounding neighborhood is discouraged and may require permits. Please be respectful of the surrounding neighborhood. Pay attention to city signage and street parking guidelines, and please do not block driveways. City street and paid lot parking is available on a first-come-first-served basic surrounding the event. You should also plan to give yourself plenty of time to arrive to the Austin Ice Cream Festival and After Dark as downtown Austin traffic may be congested or delayed.
