Parking & Travel Tips

All ZMF On Tour Boston 2018 events will be held at
Boston Conservatory at Berklee
132 Ipswich Street, Boston, MA 02215

between the Back Bay and Fenway neighborhoods of Boston

For participants driving to the festival
Parking all day near 132 Ipswich will probably be difficult, especially on May 25 and 26. We suggest:

- If you are staying at a hotel that offers parking, park there. (Even if it seems expensive, it may be your best bet!)
- Park away from the Fenway / Back Bay area and take the T (subway).
- The closest T stops are: Hynes Convention Center (Green Line - B,C,D branches); Symphony (Green Line - E branch)

For the public attending concerts
- On May 25, the Boston Red Sox will play an evening game at Fenway Park (very near 132 Ipswich). Therefore, it likely be difficult and expensive to park. We suggest you leave extra time, and consider using public transportation or a rideshare service.
- On May 26, the Red Sox game is early afternoon, so on-street parking and parking lots will be available and more reasonably priced in the evening.
- On May 27 and 28, the Red Sox game is also early afternoon. Good news!: on-street parking is free on Sundays and Memorial Day (Monday)!
- Be advised: With all on-street parking, Resident Permit Parking restrictions apply to some metered areas after 6pm.
