***Parking Information***

Parking around the venue may be very difficult to find so we encourage you to use public transportation or taxis to get to the fair. If you are bringing your car you will have to try and locate a parking spot at one of the free lots throughout Golden Gate Park.

Do not park:

  • At the San Francisco County Fair Building itself, it is a tow-away zone.

  • Along Lincoln Way, it is also a tow-away zone during the hours of the fair.

  • In the Music Concourse Garage unless you are leaving the fair early; the garage closes at 7:00pm.
