Because the church is located on the edge of downtown Guelph, there is no parking directly on site. However, there is FREE parking very close to the event site. Here are the directions:

Directions from point east of Guelph:
Take the 401W toward London. After the blue "Guelph" sign, take the second exit "Highway 6 North" Exit #295 towards Guelph. See "Directions Continued" below to get you to site.

Directions from points west of Guelph:
Take the 401E towards Toronto. After the blue "Guelph" sign, take the first exit "Highway 6 North" Exit #295 towards Guelph. See "Directions Continued" below to get you to site.

Directions Continued:
Merge right onto Wellington Street (the off ramp just after lights at College Ave.). Turn left onto Gordon Street. Gordon Street turns into Norfolk Street almost right away. Once you go under the railroad bridge, look for the first and only church on your right.

In order to continue towards parking, stay on Norfolk Street until you hit the first set of lights after the church, this is Quebec Street/Paisley Street. Turn right onto Quebec Street and make an immediate left turn at the first set of lights you come to onto Baker Street. Turn right onto Chapel Lane, the first street off of Baker street. The entrance to the public parking lot is at the end on the left. You will have to take a ticket to get into the parking lot, but you will not be charged when you leave.

If you would like to drop off your stuff before you park, you can turn right onto Cork Street E (just before the church) but then the church will be on your left. Or, you can turn right onto Quebec Street (at the lights just passed the church). At the second set of lights turn right onto Wyndham Street and then turn right onto Cork Street E. This will bring you right in front of the entrance way for the event.
