We anticipate thousands of visitors to Michigan State University for the Science Festival. Please plan your trip accordingly. We do not anticipate that visitors will require to drive between most events as many of the events are clustered within walking distance of the Lansing State Journal Expo Tent located at Benefactors Plaza (between the Old Horticulture Building and the Natural Science Building). We also have a shuttle bus service that will transport visitors between buildings on the two weekends of the Festival.
Please note, most Science Festival events take place after 6 pm on weekdays and on the weekends when parking is generally open to visitors and free of charge (with the exception of special event parking). Special events such as athletics, Wharton or Breslin performances designate event lots and are marked as such. A special event fee may be charged at those lot entrances.
If you are parking at the Commuter Lot during the two weekends of the Festival, you can ride the Festival shuttle bus to the Auditorium.
Also note, on April 16 and 18, Parking Lot 91, which is regularly by permit only, will be open to visitors 5-9 pm.
