We are very pleased  to again offer parking in the lot directly across from the festival on 4th St.  The old Jeffrey Mining lot is being developed by the Wagenbrenner Company and they have graciously made it available to the Columbus Italian Festival this year for parking.

The parking lot entrance will be at 4th and Neruda and the parking fee is $10 per car.  Look for signs on 4th St. as you enter the festival for directions to parking.

Additionally parking is available at the Columbus State Community College south lot at Long and Cleveland.  Parking at this lot is free and a shuttle will be available for $2 per person round trip.   There will be multiple buses running so this will be a convenient location with short wait times.

The shuttle buses will be available the following times:
Friday- 4pm- 12am midnite
Saturday- 11am to 12am midnite
Sunday- 11am-8pm

Directions to Columbus State:  Lot is located at corner on Cleveland and Long.  From Broad St go north on Cleveland.  Then turn right (east) on Long and left into the Columbus State Lot

Handicap parking will be available at the Capital City Awning Lot on 4th St. across from Smith Bros.  Handicap sticker required and towing enforced.  Patrons requiring special assistance may also be droped off at the festival entrance at 4th and Lincoln.

Volunteers: All Volunteers will  park at the Columbus State Lot.
 Make sure you get your festival parking pass from your area chair.  Your pass will give you free shuttle service to and from Columbus State.
