We will have a shuttle system to and from Carmel High School during festival hours.
Handicap parking is available at the PNC Bank Parking lot.
Additional parking is available at the Indiana Design Center on Rangeline Road that includes underground parking.
Admission is free as always and last year we had a record breaking crowd over two days of 30,000. Both days we have booked wonderful entertainment. Along with the tempting food vendors, festival goers can sample the Arts and Design Districtís outstanding restaurants and visit all the local shops. This year for children we have Young at Art stations throughout the festival. Again this year we have the very popular exhibit the Young Artist Tent, featuring the exceptional talent of our high school art students in Carmel.
