All performances are accessible at no cost for the casual passerby, or for those who choose to arrive by bicycle, bus, car, or foot to each site.
Bicyclists can make use of a do-it-yourself-bike route map to each location, available at the event's starting point or right here online (map will be available 9/15/2010).
The public also stands to watch most performances, and there is moderate walking required to reach each performance site. Wear good walking shoes!
The weather will vary from site to site each day so dress appropriately and bring water.
For wheelchair accessibility, please arrive at 10:45 a.m. for the 11:00 a.m. tours on Saturday and Sunday. If you will be joining us on one of our wheelchair accessible tours, please let us know of your attendance by emailing Randy firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please enter the SF Botanical Garden at the main entrance on Martin Luther King Drive near 9th Avenue and Lincoln Way. Non-SF residents should say 'Trolley Dances' at the ticketing window.
Volunteers will begin to give out individual bracelets for performance tours at 10:00 a.m. on the festival days at the Harvey Milk Center for Recreational Arts.
Due to limited space on the trains, we can only issue 60-70 bracelets for audience members per tour. The bracelets denote the members of the performance tour.
Audience members can also 'create your own tour' by using their own transportation to travel from Duboce Park to Golden Gate Park, i.e., bike, car, foot, or MUNI 6/71 at Haight and Pierce Streets. Festival maps will be available at the event's starting point orright here online.
Performances by Sunset Chinese Folk Dance Group, Joe Goode Performance Group, and Christine Bonansea 2x3 Project will begin at Duboce Park every 45 minutes from 11:00 a.m.-2:45 p.m.
Performances by Sara Shelton Mann, Ensohza Minyoshu, and Epiphany Productions will begin approximately at the SF Botanical Gardens at Golden Gate Park every 45 minutes from 12:00 p.m.-3:45 p.m. These times will vary so please be patient.
At Duboce Park, time-limited parking is available along the streets around the park and Duboce Triangle.
At Golden Gate Park, there is time-limited parking along John F. Kennedy Dr., Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. and side streets within the park, but these streets tend to get crowded and are sometimes closed on weekends. Instead, visitors can park at the Music Concourse Garage, which is open 7:30 a.m.-10 p.m. every day, and costs $3.50 an hour during the week, $4 an hour on weekends (bicycle parking is free). The north entrance is at 10th Ave. and Fulton St. and the south entrance is at Concourse Dr. and Martin Luther King Dr. inside the park. Alternate parking is available at the UCSF Medical Center Garage at Irving St. near 3rd Ave. and costs $3 an hour.
Due to the expense and lack of parking, we recommend that people who will be driving to the festival try to carpool.
