Hallelujah! The Fourth Avenue underpass is open again!
Club Crawl® started back in 1994 with the idea that someone could walk from Fourth Avenue to Congress Street while enjoying the various nightclubs along the way—taking in as much live music as humanly possible. Now that the main thoroughfare between downtown and Fourth Avenue is back, Club Crawl® revelers will be able to again do just that.
But you may have some other questions—and here are (hopefully) helpful answers to some of them.
How will the street closure affect traffic coming to Club Crawl®?
We'll close down Congress Street at noon to set up our outdoor stages, and Broadway Boulevard will have two-way traffic from Fourth Avenue to Sixth Avenue; regular westbound traffic on Congress will resume at Sixth Avenue. We recommend entering downtown either from the north via Stone Avenue, or from the south via Sixth Avenue to avoid delays on that section of westbound Congress/Broadway.
Where are the main entrances to Club Crawl®?
There are two main entrances this fall. The east entrance is at the corner of Fourth Avenue and Congress Street, and the west entrance is at Sixth Avenue and Congress Street. Both of these entrances will have plenty of people selling wristbands and getting you into the event quickly.
Where should one park?
The closest big parking garage to Club Crawl® is one block away on the corner of Pennington Street and Sixth Avenue. The best way to access this garage is to head south on Stone Avenue to Pennington, then east to the Scott Street entrance, or to head north on Sixth to Pennington, and then head for the entrance. There are 750 parking spots here, and the price is only $2 for the entire night.
There are also 1,000 on-street parking-meter spaces near Club Crawl® that are free after 5 p.m. The La Placita garage, at Church Avenue and Jackson Street (one block south of Broadway), has an additional 500 spaces.
With four other large parking garages nearby, the total number of parking spaces downtown is around 14,000.
