Made in America doesn’t have a designated parking location, so drivers will have to find a garage or street parking near the Ben Franklin Parkway. Other options to get to the festival:
🚇 Subway: If you take the Market-Frankford El, 30th Street Station is the closest to the Parkway; you will have to walk 15 minutes. Hopping off on Race-Vine, on the Broad Street line, will save you two minutes of walking.
🚌 Bus: Lines 7, 32, 33, 38, 48, and 49 can take you within a two-minute walking distance of the entrance.
🚴♀️ Bicycle: The Parkway is a 13-minute ride from many locations in Center City. If you rent an Indego bike, there are four stations to return it near the festival area.
