Getting to the Festival

Presidio Middle School
450 30th Ave, San Francisco (@ Geary)

Arriving by Car

If driving from the east bay we suggest using the Octavia exit from the freeway, then turn left on Fell and right on Stanyan (at the start of Golden Gate Park). Turn left from Stanyan onto Geary. Continue to 30th Avenue.

From the north, cross the Golden Gate Bridge and take the California 1S exit toward Golden Gate Parkway/19th Avenue. Continue through the tunnel and turn right on Geary Blvd. Continue to 30th Avenue.

From the south, take Highway 280. In Daly City, stay left to continue onto Highway 1/19th Avenue. Take 19th Avenue all the way to Golden Gate Park and again stay left on Crossover Drive to 25th Avenue. From 25th, turn left on Geary Blvd and continue to 30th Avenue.

Note that onsite parking is $8 per car: this is what we are charged by the SF School District. No in-and-out. There is free street parking in the area.

Arriving by BART

Take BART to the Montgomery Station. Exit the BART station onto Market Street. Look for a sign saying 38 and 38L; you can take either bus. The 38L "limited" is about 5 minutes faster during its service hours, which include Saturday until about 5:30 pm, but you have to walk a bit more at the west end. Get off at Geary and 30th Ave. (if riding the 38 local) or Geary and 33rd Ave. (if riding the 38L).

A 25-cent discount is available when you transfer from BART to Muni. To get the discount, you must use the Clipper card that you used to buy your BART fare. The 25 cent discount will be automatically applied to your card.
