CAR – Route Map, Parking Information, Driving Directions

Notes: 
This year La Quinta Arts Festival runs concurrent with the BNP Paribas Tennis Tournament.  To avoid anticipated heavy traffic from I-10 on Washington Street traveling south to the Indian Wells Tennis Garden, we suggest alternative routes into the La Quinta Village.

Road work near the campus will be halted during the week of La Quinta Arts Festival to provide easier access.
