DIRECTIONS TO THE FESTIVAL
We are excited to host CRAFTFEST on the beautiful historic site of the future Zibi development.
We recommend arriving by transit, bicycle, or walking. There is limited vehicle parking around the venue.

BY TRANSIT: In Ottawa, take one of the bus routes that stops just outside the CRAFTFEST grounds. This includes bus routes 8, 61, 95, and 105. You can also walk in less than 10 minutes from LeBreton Station on Booth Street. In Gatineau/Hull, take any of the bus routes that go to the main station at Rue Eddy/Laurier, then walk south over the Chaudiere Bridge to get to the site.
BY BICYCLE: For the safest and most scenic route, take the Ottawa River Pathway to Booth Street, and then walk around 1 minute north over the bridge to the festival site. From Ottawa south of the River Pathway, take the O-Train Pathway north to the Ottawa River Pathway east, until you arrive at Booth street, and walk north over the bridge.
BY FOOT: From Parliament Hill (east) it will take about 24 minutes to walk to CRAFTFEST. Follow the simple path on this Google map: https://goo.gl/maps/g2AdgfHrByA2. From Centretown Ottawa or west, you can simply walk over the Booth Street Bridge to the festival site. From Gatineau/Hull, you can simply walk to Laurier/Eddy intersection, and turn onto the bridge south towards the site.
BY CAR: We recommend paid parking in the War Museum lot which is accessible from Booth Street or the Sir John A. MacDonald Parkway. From there you can walk about 2 minutes north along Booth to Albert Island. There is a limited amount of free parking just north west across Booth street from CRAFTFEST on Albert Island. You can then walk back over using the cross-walk attached to this east-side parking lot, or you will have to walk south past the venue and cross at the Ottawa River Pathway behind the War Museum (you cannot cross Booth street at the CRAFTFEST entrance). Under no circumstance should you cross Booth street to and from the parking lot, at any place besides these two cross walks.
