This year’s festival is once again at Coffman Memorial Union at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. Here’s the address:

300 Washington Ave Southeast

Minneapolis, MN 55455

Please see maps and directions from the University of Minnesota’s website.

We encourage you to walk, bike, or use transit instead of driving to the festival! The location is friendly to these forms of transportation, and you’ll reduce the likelihood of running over precious critters.


With that out of the way, here’s how you drive here. We’ve created a custom Google Map for the festival that includes driving paths from the nearest highways. If you’d like to plot your own course, set your GPS for 300 Washington Ave SE in Minneapolis. You’ll want to park in the East River Road Garage behind Coffman. Take the elevator to the top floor then head across the nearest street and up the stairs to Coffman.


The Green Line and a lot of buses serve the Minneapolis UMN campus, including the 2, 3, 6, and 16. Unfortunately, all the express routes are weekday only. Check out the Metro Transit website for a trip planner, maps, and schedules. Your destination for the trip planner is 300 Washington Ave SE in Minneapolis.


Biking to the university is easy and there are many bike racks by Coffman. See the UMN biking info page for details, including maps showing available bike lanes.
