How to Get to the Art Show
The St. James Court Art Show® is held in historic Old Louisville just south of Central Park on St. James and Belgravia Courts, and adjacent blocks of Magnolia Avenue and Third and Fourth Streets. During the show, all streets within the event perimeter will be closed. Old Louisville is approximately 3 miles south of downtown. Official programs are available at the show, or in the October issue of Louisville Magazine. Use this map along with other helpful information in the program to enhance your visit.
Exit I-65 at Broadway for shuttle service to the show. Exit 135/St. Catherine West for valet or self-parking. Exiting from either the north or the south ramps will place you heading west on St. Catherine. If you wish to have your vehicle valet parked, after exiting I-65, continue westward on St. Catherine (it is one way at this point) for several blocks, crossing a series of numbered streets (1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc.). At 3rd Street, St. Catherine becomes two-way, so be sure to get into one of the rightmost lanes. Turn left onto 6th Street. Follow 6th Street south, past Oak, Ormsby and Park (Central Park will be on your left). The next cross street is Magnolia. Turn right to drop off your car for valet parking service during the show. There is a $20 fee for valet. If you wish to park your own vehicle, merge onto the left lane of St. Catherine if exiting from I-65 North; turn right onto St. Catherine from the straight ramp if exiting from I-65 South – DO NOT fork off to the right. Get immediately in the leftmost lane, then turn left on First Street. Continue on First Street for several blocks. From First, turn right onto Hill. You will then cross a series of numbered streets (2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc.). You may park anywhere on the street not designated as a permit area. To pay to park at Cochran Elementary School, turn left onto 6th Street from Hill. 6th will curve sharply to the left, turning into Gaulbert Avenue. At this curve, enter the Cochran Elementary School lot. To pay to park at DuPont Manual High School, Noe Middle School or YPAS, turn left onto 3rd Street, left onto Cardinal and left onto 2nd Street – all 3 schools will be visible on your right. To pay to park at the Filson Club continue up 2nd Street and turn left on Ormsby and left again on 3rd – the Filson Club will be on your right (you may also turn left onto 3rd directly from St. Catherine, but this puts you in heavy traffic).
From I-64 E/W
Take the 9th Street exit, continue south on 9th; it will eventually change into 7th Street. If you wish to use the show’s valet parking service for a $20 fee, turn left onto Magnolia. Valet drop-off is one block away at 6th Street. If you wish to park your car yourself, continue on 9th, which becomes 7th. Turn left onto Hill Street, then right onto 6th Street. 6th immediately curves sharply to the left, turning into Gaulbert Avenue., At this curve, you may turn right to enter the Cochran Elementary School lot, or you may continue on Gaulbert, turning right on 3rd Street, left onto Cardinal and left onto 2nd Street to park at DuPont Manual High School, Noe Middle School or YPAS. Continue up 2nd Street to park at the Filson Club, turning left on Ormsby and left on 3rd – it will be on your right (you may also turn left onto 3rd directly from St. Catherine, but this puts you in heavy traffic).
From I-264 E/W (not shown on map)
Take the 3rd Street/Southern Parkway exit. Go north on Southern Parkway, which becomes 3rd Street. Merge onto 2nd Street. Continue on 2nd as outlined above to park at DuPont Manual High School, Noe Middle School or YPAS or the Filson Club. To park at Cochran Elementary School, turn left onto Gaulbert from 2nd. Turn left into the school lot at the sharp curve.
