PARKING @ STREET FEST
We recommend checking Park Tucson's website for parking garages, lots, and metered options in and around downtown Tucson. Because of the location of Street Fest right on 6th Avenue and 7th Street, there are a lot of great options for street parking. If you're having trouble finding a parking lot, 6th Avenue and Toole is just a short walk under the underpass and gives access to all of the parking options downtown.
Some other options include:
Toole and 4th Ave

WATER AND WEATHER
Because it's Arizona…be prepared for a warm (perhaps even hot) day, according to the Weather Man. Bring a refillable water bottle to use at one of our water stations, or we'll have reusable water bottles on sale for $1. Wear sunscreen! And bring an extra layer for when it gets colder in the evening.
