The Lafayette Art & Wine Festival is an annual event that is presented by the Lafayette Chamber of Commerce. The footprint of the event is a combination of public & private property. The Lafayette Chamber of Commerce celebrates the diversity of our “greater” community and understands that part of our responsibility is to make our event accessible to people with disabilities. This event is to be enjoyed by everyone.
To ensure that our event is completely accessible according to ADA regulations, we reviewed and implemented all requirements highlighted in ADA Title II.
The Lafayette Chamber of Commerce welcomes everyone to our annual Art & Wine Festival that takes place on the third weekend in September (September 17-18, 2022). Our event has been planned to consider and anticipate all people with any disability.
We are available by BART, auto, bicycle, & walking. The walkways from all parking and the BART station are all in compliance. City staff has also inspected the most used walkways to prevent any accidents. Free movement throughout the festival has been set up. There may be booths set in the street or on the sidewalks, but always with a clear way to access them. Published Festival maps highlight where the most convenient “handicapped” parking exists. Space will be limited.
If you park at the BART upper lot on Deer Hill Rd. use the Douglas Parking Bus for shuttle transportation to and from the event. One of the buses is equipped with a wheel chair lift. This bus will be marked Lamorinda Spirit Van. See map at www.lafayettefestival.com for help. Buses will run from 9:30am – to 30 minutes after the event ends.
This year we have also created a Taxi/Uber drop off – pick up area. Driving South from Deerhill Rd. on Oak Hill Rd. the road will be closed at Mt. Diablo Blvd. Stay in the right lane and it will take you to the drop off – pick up zone on Oak Hill Rd.
