We wanted to inform everyone about parking for Naughti Gras 13. In past years we have always been able to accommodate many patrons by offering parking in a lot across the street from the Koken Art Factory. In early 2018, that property sold and as you will see, construction is well underway for a new facility.
There will only be street
parking available this year for Naughti Gras.
Though there is quite a bit of street parking available, we also want to encourage to Carpool, use Uber, Lyft or Taxi services.
As always, we have hired Security to patrol the streets, making sure everyone gets to and from the venue safely. In addition, these officers will be riding in oversized golf carts to provide you a courtesy ride to the venue. Please be respectful of the residential street sides and try to avoid parking in front of homes.
The street offering the most parking is on Ohio Ave. Parking on Ohio stretches from Gravois to Geyer. These are long blocks but there will be golf carts zipping back and forth for you to hopefully catch and get a ride to the venue.
Please see the attached map and note the highlighted red side streets that will be available. Again, try to avoid parking in front of homes.
