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. This event is to be enjoyed by everyone.
The Lafayette Chamber of Commerce welcomes everyone to our annual Art & Wine Festival that takes place on the third weekend in September (September 21-22, 2019). 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. 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. Maps found on our website highlight where the most convenient “handicapped” parking exists. Space will be limited. Handicapped parking can also be found in the Bart lots as well as other lots that surround the footprint of the festival. The Main Lot at the Bart Station has dozens of Handicapped parking spaces. And since the shuttles stop at the station, these may be the easiest spaces to navigate. There will also be 5 additional handicapped spaces available in the Walgreens lot at 3614 Mt. Diablo Blvd. just outside the festival west entrance. To reach those additional handicapped spaces, enter the alley behind the Wells Fargo Bank located on Happy Valley Rd. Follow to the Wallgreen’s parking lot. The spaces will be to your left.
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. At least one of the buses is equipped with a wheel chair lift. This bus will be marked Lamorinda Spirit Van. This year there is additional parking. See map for more information.
We have also created a Taxi/Uber/Lyft drop off – pick up area. You will be able to arrive or exit the festival at the Main Entrance, (corner of Mt. Diablo and Oak Hill Rd.). This will be the closest space where Taxi’s, Uber and Lyft will be able to access. The GPS address to use is 1010 Oak Hill Rd. The drop off- pick up area is just north of the driveway leading into the Safeway Store.
Taking into consideration…
Path of travel.
Duty to provide accessible features in the event of disproportionality.
All people that are involved with any productions on any of our stages have been notified that we will make any of our stages accessible during the event. This is written into each contract. The stages will be marked “off limits” as an area that is not open to the public.
Because our event is located in the center of our downtown, many businesses in our downtown have accessible rest rooms. There are also four areas where you can find Handicapped Porta-potties. They are:
