There will be a very short detour through the neighborhood, if you are coming from the west on Como Avenue.  Como Avenue will be under construction between Brompton and Valentine.  Take Eustis south from Como Avenue, and turn left on Valentine, which will bring you right back to Como and you can continue to the right to the Arts Festival site at Como and Carter Avenues.

    By Bike

    Coming from the east or the west, Como Avenue has bike lanes marked off. Coming from the south, Raymond Ave also has bike lanes, and you can connect with Como Avenue to get to the arts festival.  Coming from the north, there aren't any bike lanes marked, and Cleveland Ave is your best bet, again connecting with Como Avenue. The U of M Transitway provides a great shortcut from Minneapolis. There are bike racks available along Como Avenue near the arts festival.

    By Bus

    Metro Transit's Route 3 runs right through the festival along Como Avenue. Get off at either Doswell or Carter Avenues.
