Union Street Festival 2023 Map



Parking in Cow Hollow and The Marina can be difficult on normal weekends, so you can expect it will be a lot worse during the festival. If you aren’t able to find a lucky spot within walking distance of the festival, then your best bet would be the parking garages on Fillmore & Lombard or on Pierce Street between Chestnut & Lombard.

Transportation in San Francisco

Instead of driving, we would recommend taking public transportation or grabbing an Uber or Lyft. There are several Muni lines (41, 22, 30, 45) that will get you close enough to walk to the event.
