A few things to know before you head Downtown

Posted:

One Spark has officially started with the first creators pitching their projects at stages around Downtown, while others welcome visitors to their venues.

Here are a few things you need to know for a smooth One Spark experience.

Parking

Many parking meters downtown are bagged, so don't count on street parking. Plus several streets will be closed.

Your best bet is to park for free at the Prime Osborne Convention Center and take a free Skyway ride to Hemming Plaza. The Skyway will run until 3 a.m. on the nights of April 17-19, 8 a.m.-3 a.m. April 20 and 8 a.m.-6 p.m. April 21.

You can also park at EverBank Field and take a free shuttle to One Spark.

The Bridges

The Mathews Bridge continues to be worked on and will be closed after 7 p.m. April 17-19 and all day on April 20. It is usually open on Sundays.

The Main Street Bridge will be closed 10:30 a.m.-10:30 p.m April 20 for a fundraiser by The Florida Theatre, the Rock the Bridge Gala.

 

Download the One Spark App

Don’t forget to download the One Spark app in the App Store and Google Play Store to have all the important One Spark info at your fingertips during the festival. This is also the easiest way to vote for projects. You can also access the mobile site from any web-enabled device.

Wi-Fi

One Spark is providing all attendees with Wi-Fi to use throughout the Creator Zone and Entertainment District. They can't guarantee uptime or speeds, but the coverage will help Creators and attendees stay connected.

On your mobile phone, tablet or other Wi-Fi enabled device, search for a new network. Select “ONESPARK->FREE WIFI” and wait for the device to connect.
