Directions to Little Falls

The festival will be held at Canal Place, a block south of Route 5 in Little Falls, New York—easy to find. “Follow Your Nose to Canal Place”! (There will also be signs to direct you as you get close.)

Please note that parking is limited and a FREE SHUTTLE is available—again, watch for the signs.

Little Falls, New York is minutes off the NYS Thruway, I-90, at Exit 29A (not to be confused with Exit 29), between Utica and Albany.

From the west (Utica, Syracuse and beyond):

Take the Thruway to Exit 30. Once through the tollbooths, go left over the river, and left again onto Route 5S heading east. Some six miles along Route 5S, take a left onto Route 167 North into Little Falls. A bridge crosses the river; at the stop sign, turn right towards Canal Place.

Alternatively, continue on the Thruway to Exit 29A–both routes take about the same time.

From the east (Albany, MassPike):

Take the Thruway to Exit 29A. Follow the road down to the river and along to the bridge. Follow Route 169 North into Little Falls along East Main Street.

Route 5 West is an alternative to the Thruway and goes right through Little Falls.

Route 5S is another option. Follow 167 (if coming from the west) or 169 (from the east) to reach Little Falls.

From the north:

From the northwest (Watertown, Old Forge, Barneveld):

Routes 12 and 28 converge. Take Route 28 South, via Middleville and Herkimer to Route 5 East.

A hillier but more direct option is Route 169 East from Middleville into Little Falls.

From the northeast (Adirondacks, Saratoga Springs):

Take the Northway, I-87, south to Saratoga Springs, Exit 14. Follow Union Avenue West (Route 9P), then Route 29 to Route 67 West. Route 67 West joins Route 5 West, which goes through Little Falls.

From the south (Cooperstown, Oneonta):

Take I-88 to Route 28 North through Richfield Springs and down the long hill into Mohawk. Turn right onto Route 5S East. Remain on Route 5S for about six miles, then turn left onto Route 167 North into Little Falls.
