We are East of where the 605 San Gabriel River Freeway and the 210 Foothill Freeway cross.
From the 210 Freeway, east of the 605…
- Exit the 210 at Irwindale and turn South
- Go approx. 1 mile.
- Turn Right onto Arrow Hwy (= West)
- Go approx. .3 (3/10s) of 1 mile
- Turn Right into the Santa Fe Dam Rec. Area park
Approaching the Faire from the 210 Freeway and using the Irwindale exit is the fastest and easiest way to get to the park since all the traffic measures in place are optimized for this route.
Our Faire is located at the Santa Fe Dam Recreation Area, which is at the Irwindale exit off the 210 Freeway, just east of where the 210 and 605 Freeways cross. There will be traffic control measures in place.
PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION DIRECTIONS:
Use the Irwindale stop on the Metro Gold Line! Plan a responsible way home!
Take the Metro into the Irwindale Station and use a ride-share app to get to and from the Faire. (Rides typically cost less than $5.)
Uber/Lyft users do NOT have to pay the vehicle access fee. Your driver must show ride confirmation to the gate attendant and you’ll be able to use the pick-up/drop-off point located near the Faire’s front gate!
