Transportation, Directions & Parking

ALERT: Do NOT park on the residential streets surrounding Piedmont Park!


The residential streets near the park are now designated Residential Parking Only and your vehicles WILL be ticketed or towed. Fines for parking on residential-only streets during festivals are now $75.00! We don’t want your festival experience to end on a negative note, so please make arrangements for alternative transport. Check out some options below.


The nearest MARTA stations are Midtown and Arts Center, both located just a few walkable blocks from the Park. For additional information visit or call MARTA at 404.848.5000.




By Car

For those of you who are unable to use alternative transportation, we have partnered with Parking Panda, the nationwide leader in online parking reservations, to allow festival attendees to purchase parking passes at several convenient locations near Piedmont Park for the Atlanta Jazz Festival.

Once purchased, parking is 100% guaranteed even if the location otherwise fills up, often at exclusive discounts. Simply present your purchase confirmation at the selected location, and this serves as your payment with no additional payments or fees ever. Inventory is limited and spaces will fill up, so it is strongly recommended that you purchase your parking for the festival in advance, if driving.

***Exclusive Partner Offer: Use code ATLJAZZ at checkout for 10% off your first reservation***
