Parking for Fandomonium

Excited about Fandomonium but have no idea where to park? We have some hints to make getting here hassle free and to help you avoid a ticket (or getting towed). Parking at Headquarters (401 E University Ave, Gainesville FL) fills up quick. Try to walk, bike, or carpool, if you can.

Within a few blocks’ walk there is plenty of free curbside parking.

  • Metered parking is free on Saturdays (e.g. along SE 2nd Ave).
  • Parking lots which require permits are not free. Double check signs.
  • A few streets require Neighborhood Parking decals. Look for signs.
  • A handy interactive map of parking downtown
  • It is so close, so it is so tempting, but DO NOT park in front of the Federal Building—parking there changed recently to RESERVED 24/7 for law enforcement vehicles. The map linked above has not yet been updated to show this. (See photo below)
