Getting Around by Car
Driving around Ybor can be a breeze, although in evenings, with all of the night life and pedestrian action, it’s often better to park and ride. There are several parking options available. Look for the parking icons on the map above!
Street parking can be found on many side streets and alley ways around Ybor. Protip: Look for no-parking signs… You wouldn’t want to get a ticket!
Closest to Fringe Central, you’ll find the Palm Garage. Other lots are scattered around just north and south of 7th Ave. Parking is usually pretty inexpensive, but on weekend nights it can get pretty crowded in Ybor, so it might be best to drive in earlier and leave the car for the evening if you’re planning on making a night of it!
There are plenty of ways to bike around Ybor and lots of great places to lock your bike. Please note that the festival cannot accept any responsibility for lost or damaged bicycles!
You can also find plenty of Coast Bikeshare racks sprinkled around our little festival campus! Coast offers you a unique way to ride around Ybor City and Downtown Tampa at a reasonable cost! Leave the car on the outskirts or Ybor, or downtown! You can bike in for a minimal cost with no worries about your bike’s safety while you’re enjoying the festival!
The Teco Line Streetcar is a great way to breeze through Ybor City! With four stops along the route convenient to festival venues, you can get from one end of the festival to the other with only minimal walking! Fares are reasonable too: $5.00 for regular adult all-day passes, and $2.50 for seniors, youths, and persons with disabilities!
