Getting Here

Now that you’re all giddy about coming to Burlington for the Magic Hat Mardi Gras Parade, you’d probably like to know how to get here! By air, car or bus, there’s a way. You can get here from there!

By Air

Flying into Burlington? New planes, huge seats, and TVs mean that JetBlue Airways is the best way to travel. Since you’ll be planning your trip well in advance (well in advance, right?), check out JetBlue.com for the best rates. They fly right into Burlington International Airport (BTV), so once you’re in, you won’t have far to go before you hit the fun!


From the North

Take I-89 South to Exit 14W. Go straight (west) on Main Street (Williston Road), through several stop lights, through the middle of the UVM campus and down a hill toward Lake Champlain. You’ll remain on Main Street the entire time. Church Street will be on your right at the third light once you’ve started going down the hill. The distance from the exit to Church Street is about 1 mile.


From the South

From Albany, New York, and All Points West

Take I-87 North to Exit 20 (Rt. 149). Take Rt. 149 East to Fort Ann and turn onto Rt. 4 North. Continue on Rt. 4 until you meet up with Rt. 7.Turn to go north on Rt. 7, and follow into Burlington. You’ll pass a Dunkin’ Donuts on your right (after the Shaw’s), and soon the road will come to a fork. Stay in the right lane and bear right. You’ll go through several stop signs and through the Champlain College campus before you arrive at a stoplight at Main Street with signs for Route 2. Take a left onto Main Street, heading west toward the water, and Church Street will be on your right about four blocks down.


From the Airport

Turn left onto Airport Drive upon exiting airport grounds. Follow Airport Drive to the traffic light at the intersection with Williston Road (Route 2). Turn right onto Williston Road. Continue West on Williston Road (it will become Main Street, but you’re still going in the right direction!) for approximately 2 miles. You’ll begin to go down a hill towards Lake Champlain. At the bottom of the hill will be the intersection with Church Street.
