Enter at Door 5, near the parking deck


Closest Metro: Ballston or Virginia Square


Parking: The main entrance into the event is at door 5 — this door is the farthest one opposite the track and field area, near the Planetarium.


There’s a multi-level parking deck there with free parking, which is first-come, first-serve. Once that’s full, people can park on the street along N. Quincy St. Otherwise, there is street parking in the blocks surrounding the high school. Please do not park in front of the doors.


As a last resort, you can park over at Arlington Central Library. Anyone parking at the library, if you park in the garage then it locks promptly at 5 PM, and your car can’t get out until the next day.
