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.
