From highway 99 south: Exit Highway 12; turn left on Beckman Road and go a short block north to Victor Road; take a left and go to Cherokee Lane; turn right on Cherokee Lane to Lockeford Street and you are at the festival grounds.
From highway 99 north: Take the Turner Road exit and go south to Cherokee Lane, then right on Lockeford Street. (Once you leave the freeway, don’t veer to the right back to Turner, continue straight south.)
From interstate 5 south: Take the Highway 12 exit and turn right onto the highway. You will travel several miles into Lodi, then turn left on Cherokee Lane. Travel north through the city, and turn left again on to Lockeford Street.
One thing to keep in mind during the festival, whether you will be attending or are just going about your daily activities, part of Lockeford Street will once again be turned into a one way street with the flow of traffic moving east to west. Traffic will be directed around the area, so use caution when driving by the festival grounds during festival hours.
