Maker Faire Detroit Parking & Shuttle Service
July 27-28, 2013
Make it Easy! Park and Ride for Free to Maker Faire at The Henry Ford
 
parking & drop-off
The Outdoor Midway of Maker Faire fills up our Museum parking lot, so for the weekend there are a few parking alternatives:
  • All Parking and Shuttles during Maker Faire are FREE!

  • Village Road Lots - Parking in the Village Road lots across from Greenfield Village is available during the weekend. Please note that these lots fill up quickly each morning. If you are coming to Maker Faire at lunchtime and after, your best bet for parking are the lots off Oakwood or the offsite shuttle.

  • Oakwood Blvd Lots – Parking is available directly across from and next to Maker Faire on Oakwood Blvd in the Ford Motor Company lots. Please follow the signs and adhere to the instructions of THF staff and the Dearborn Police Department.

  • Expanded parking for the physically challenged is located near the IMAX Theatre entrance and at the Beech Street entrance off of Oakwood Blvd.
