The Little Italy-University Circle RTA Station

CLEVELAND -- The 100,000 people headed to Little Italy this weekend for the Feast of the Assumption do not have to give parking a second thought.

Just use the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA).

Park free at a Rapid Station, and ride the Red Line to the Little Italy-University Circle Station, about one block from Holy Rosary Church, the epicenter of the four-day celebration.

During this time, Mayfield Road is closed from Euclid Avenue to Cleveland Heights, and there is limited parking.

The Station opened in August 2015, just a few days before the festival.

Festival hours this year

  • Noon-midnight Saturday, Aug. 12.
  • Noon-11 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 13.
  • 6 p.m.-midnight Monday, Aug. 14.
  • Noon-11 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 15,
