PARKING

There is plenty of parking available in the neighborhood and in a number of parking lots in the town. All parking is free. Most parking in the neighborhood and in the business district is unrestricted on Sundays, but please don’t park in private lots where the businesses are open. Do Not park in the Kensington Shopping Center at Connecticut Ave and Knowles Ave as they recently began towing.

There are two Town of Kensington public lots with free parking located at the Armory/Town Hall on Mitchell Street (1 block from the festival, off of Armory Avenue) and on Metropolitan Avenue on the north side of the railroad station.
