When are Things Happening
Transportation: Please use our free parking and shuttle buses located at Main Street School, in Soquel. Shuttles running all day this year: from 9 AM – 5 PM
Offsite parking with shuttle: FREE
Revision: Onsite parking at 5800 Prescott Rd, Soquel CA 95073: $20 fee. Cars will not be allowed to arrive between 10am and 11:30am because of the procession and the shuttle buses needing to get back and forth during that time.
We don’t want people to be delayed and Prescott road limits how many shuttles and cars we can have traveling on it at any given time. Help keep the buses moving steadily – arrive early and enjoy some morning snacks.
FYI: Volunteers get free onsite parking when arriving before 9 am. After 9am volunteers carpool also. thank you!
Strictly NO parking on Prescott Road.
Ride the Bus! Shuttle Bus is the way to go! Win a prize! Ride the shuttle!
Arrival Time: We strongly encourage you to arrive by 10AM if you hope to be in the procession (or to watch the procession).
The Procession: Please note that we have set the procession departure time at 11AM. The procession will be led once again by our loyal friends in the Gamelan Anak Swarasanti orchestra. Please join the procession to lead the giant Medicine Buddha thangka up the hill. See photo album of previous festival.
