Why Keep the Marketplace Location Under Wraps?
We appreciate everyone’s cooperation in helping to keep the event safe and neighbor-friendly by parking and riding the free buses to the marketplace. Many streets in Encinitas are very narrow and there isn’t much parking. With the popularity of the Garden Festival, you can imagine how dangerous it would be if there were people jockeying for parking places while guests are walking our tour. We also work hard to avoid disturbing the neighbors and the neighborhood overall. Thank you for your understanding.
