Children's Theater
The performance this year is in the Children's Theater, which is downstairs in the Armory.
Just watch this for some ideas (while cringing):
Please arrive at the Hall at least 30 minutes prior to the show.
The best option is probably the main garage between Mercer & Roy Streets, but you might find free street parking in the neighborhoods nearby, if you don't mind the walk. Traffic can get pretty busy around the Center that weekend, so give yourself extra time to get to parking and for walking through the crowds to the Center House. Most of the lots offer discounts with 3 or more people in the car.
Performers Buttons
Be sure to locate a SUPA Folklife Committee member to get a performers button which gives you access to the performers lounge (drinks and snacks) as well as the ability to coat-check your instrument(s) in several locations on the grounds. We should have enough, but otherwise they're on a first-come, first-served basis.
