ANIMALS | LEAVE THEM HOME NOT IN YOUR CAR

Pets are NOT permitted within the Festival. PLEASE do NOT leave them in your vehicle. 

The Novato Chamber partners with local transit agencies and shop owners to bring you a strong Festival. When it comes to parking at the Festival, real-estate always seems to be at a premium. We suggest that, as much as possible, please try to utilize public transit (SMART, Marin Transit, Golden Gate Transit), bike, walk, or carpool to Downtown Novato. There is no designated lot for parking.

NOTE that the Festival closes access to several streets beginning Friday evening (around 9PM) through Sunday). We appreciate all cooperation with local business owners and residents and invite you to claim your parking passes at the offices of the Novato Chamber. Despite the road closures, if you decide to drive, the side streets offer the best chance for your party to find parking. Be careful when parking in public lots, as they may be reserved for businesses (especially on Saturday during normal business hours).
