Public Transportation

There are no T stops close to the venue, however there are bus stops that are within walking distance. We recommend taking the Red Line to Harvard Square station or Central Square station and getting a bus connection to the Western Ave @ Everett St stop. From there it's a 6 minute walk to the venue entrance. Find your best MBTA route here.

Bus routes that access the Western Ave @ Everett St stop: 86 and 70

Ride Share and Driving

Please do not plan to drive in and park at Herter Park. The Charles River Jazz Festival is held at Christian A. Herter Park, a public park who's three (3) parking lots fill up quickly in the summer. Street parking in the surrounding communities is by permit only and city officials will be strict with ticketing and towing. If utilizing ride share you will be able to be dropped off at the main entrance to the Herter Park Amphitheater. Prepare for long wait times at the end of the night. Again, we strongly recommend attendees use MBTA public transportation. 

Walking and Biking

Christian A Herter Park can be accessed safely along the Dr. Paul Dudley White Bike Path. Walkers and bikers may cross Soldiers Field Rd from The Eliot Street Bridge, MSGR Timothy Gleason Memorial Overpass, and Western Ave.
