The designated car park is located off the A917 and is clearly indicated by yellow AA signs. Cars should follow these to the Charles Street car park where our stewards will help you. A suggested donation of £2 on leaving helps to offset our costs of providing this secure, central facility.


There is no parking at the harbour for festival visitors.


Coaches should follow the AA signs to the West Braes coach park & toilet facilities.

Resident and business traffic access

The road to the harbour is closed to traffic except for residents and business access. There is no parking at the harbour for festival visitors. The road linking High Street and University Avenue is closed to traffic.

Visiting Artists

Artists may deliver and collect work at their venues but must return their cars to the car park even if they are in village accommodation for the 9 days.

Ovenstone Artists Studios, Cobalt Contemporary Gallery and Ovenstone 109 are 1.5 miles north of  Pittenweem and have their own parking area.



Disabled parking and toilet facilities are available at Charles Street car park; there is a cafe nearby.


There are further toilets at West Braes coach park and at the harbour.

Please observe all signs; police and traffic wardens will be on hand to assist.

Festival Shuttle Bus: park & ride

Dates & times TBA

The bus loops continuously (about 25 minutes) from the car park, via High Street, harbour and West Shore, returning by the main road to Charles Street, Ovenstone and finally the car park.


The driver will stop/pick up on request and help with buggies and non-motorised wheel chairs. This service is free, but donations on the bus are appreciated.

Visitors and exhibiting artists should not attempt to park their cars in the village. There simply is not enough room.


Please respect Pittenweem residents by using the designated car park.
