We’ll have food trucks and onsite popcorn, snacks, and beverages. There are also area restaurants.

Shuttle Schedule

We encourage you to park in the public lots nearest to 21c Museum Hotel (so the Corcoran St. garage as well as the garage attached to Unscripted Hotel).  The shuttle will pick up & return near the Bull statue on the corner of Corcoran & Parrish streets.
