Shuttles between Old Sac & Convention Center
Ride Shuttle Buses between venues all weekend for FREE.
Musicians have first priority, along with handicapped persons. All others: first-come-first-serve. To avoid traffic and parking hassles, ride RT Light Rail and buses to the festival. Due to unavoidable traffic problems, all schedules (below) are approximate. Delays can occur, so we thank you for your patience. See the Festival MAP of shuttle routes.
You’ll find plenty of accessible parking at special rates nearby during the festival. Our shuttle buses connect most parking and performance sites.
To provide guaranteed prepaid parking options for the Sacramento Music Festival, we have partnered with Parking Panda, the nationwide leader in online parking reservations. Great parking options near the free shuttle route are available. Once purchased, parking passes are emailed instantly and guarantee you access to your selected location.

Paid parking is available throughout Sacramento’s Downtown Area and in Old Sacramento. The map in the program shows locations of parking lots with easy access to our many venues. Park your car and use friendly Festival shuttles (large buses) to take you to our various attractions. Ride shuttles all weekend for FREE. See MAP.
