Getting to the Festival

The Festival will be at the Best Western Royal Plaza Hotel & Trade Center in Marlborough, MA.

Driving instructions: Follow I-495 to US-20 W/Lakeside Ave in Marlborough. Take exit 63B from I-495. Follow US-20 W .8 miles, turn right onto Royal Plaza Drive .4 miles to your destination.

There’s plenty of free parking at the hotel and Trade Center.

MBTA Commuter Rail’s closest approach to the Festival is Southborough and Framingham, both on the FRAMINGHAM/WORCESTER line. Service is spotty, especially during the weekend. Once you get to the station, you are on your own, but NEFFA has teamed up with Lyft to provide discounted rides.
