The Summer Festival is a very popular event and significant crowds are always expected. So, this makes parking a bit of a challenge. While there is very limited disabled parking available, we do provide a drop-off/pickup area in front of the building. We have also arranged for free parking at Ygnacio Valley High School a few blocks away. Free shuttle service runs frequently between the High School and JA Club throughout the day and evening hours.

Ygnacio Valley High School is located at 755 Oak Grove Road, Concord.
