Parking, Tips and Map: Your Guide to Getting Around Jollof & Other Things
#JollofAndOtherThings is now just 4 days away and we've prepared a guide to important logistical information for the Festival! If you've missed it, here are our previous introductions to the theme of this year's edition of Jollof Festival.
Getting to the Festival
The Festival moves to Muri Okunola Park this year, which is in Victoria Island and should be very easy to find even if you've never been. We are using King's College Annexe as our parking lot this year.
You can drive in through Church Gate Street and come out from the main King's College Annexe entrance, and from there it's a short walk to Muri Okunola Park. This parking area can hold up to 700 people. It has been reserved for our festivalgoers and we advice guests to not pay anyone for parking. You are also not advised to park on the Law School road because you might be hassled for money there. Still worried about parking? You can get an Uber/Taxify to the Festival, and avoid any parking issues. If you're not driving, it gives you the oppurtunity sample our cocktail and wine vendors.
We have a handy map of all the stalls, stage and utilities at the festival to give you a visual guide. Aside from the food, there are challenges, art and showcases on display at the festival, so come in nice and on time to take in as much of the experience as possible.
As with all our previous festivals, we recommend you wear comfy clothing and stretchy pants because you're likely to do a lot of walking and eating. This year's theme, involving creative takes on Nigerian food, really encouraged our vendors to push the boundaries with their menus, and there are lots of interesting new dishes on every vendor's menu. Remember to have a read of our guide to the vendors or view the menus on instagram. Have an idea of who you want to target first, because some vendors do run out!
Have any more questions? We have an FAQ page for any thing else you might be wondering about, and if you still need some clarifications, drop them in in the comments here and we'll respond. Remember to get your discounted advance tickets while you can and we look forward to seeing you on Sunday!
