Please allow extra time for travel and parking if visiting the museum during Oktoberfest weekend. Street parking around The Dayton Art Institute will be very limited on September 23–24. Limited handicap accessible parking will be available in the Masonic Temple and Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church lots during Oktoberfest, strictly on a first-come, first-served basis.
The easiest way of getting to and from the museum during Oktoberfest is by using the free shuttle services. Look for the Oktoberfest signs and park for free at the University of Dayton lot behind the Marriott, just off Patterson Boulevard, and take free shuttles directly to and from Oktoberfest. On September 23–24, you may also park downtown and take a free RTA Oktoberfest shuttle, with stops along Monument Avenue, Wilkinson Street, Second Street, Main Street, and Fifth Street. Bicycle racks, courtesy of Bike Miami Valley, will be available near the main festival entrance at Belmonte Park and Riverview Avenue on Saturday and Sunday, noon–7 p.m.
