Getting Here

The Mariposa Folk Festival takes place at Tudhope Park in beautiful Orillia, Ontario. Surrounded by the stunning clear waters of Lake Couchiching, Orillia is well serviced by coaches travelling the north/south bus corridor. If you can, help us reduce our environmental footprint, and save on parking! Ride your bike to the Festival and lock it to the bike racks in our free bicycle parking compounds located at both ticket gates.

Bicycles

Ride your bicycle to the festival.  An onsite bicycle compound is available  for free courtesy of  Orillia Active Transportation. Bike compounds are located at the front and back gates.

If you wish to ride your bike from the downtown area you may park at Orillia City Centre, located at 50 Andrew St. S. and ride to the site. Please note that this “park and cycle option” is only available after 5:00 p.m.  on Friday, but is available all day Saturday and Sunday.

A recommended route is to bicycle east on Colborne St.  to the lights at Colborne St. and Front St. You can continue on Colborne St.  through the intersection where it turns into a walking/cycling pathway. Follow the trail to a parking lot near the waterfront. When you enter the parking lot you will see a paved trail running along the waterfront. Turn right and follow the trail all the way to J. B. Tudhope Memorial Park and the festival.

Important Tip! Bring a flashlight/headlamp if you plan on cycling after sunset as the trail is not lit in sections.
