DIRECTIONS AND PARKING

We always encourage attendees to take MARTA to the Atlanta Dogwood Festival, but this year, it’s more important than ever! See below for shuttle information, and give your MARTA Breeze Card a workout!
The Atlanta Police Department will be heavily enforcing all illegal parking around Piedmont Park the weekend of the Atlanta Dogwood Festival. Residential Parking fines have substantially increased and vehicles parked within tow zones will be impounded. We encourage everyone to utilize MARTA or park in authorized parking lots in the area. SpotHero.com can assist with the parking.
