3300 Joaquin Miller
Amphitheater is located in the Oakland hills, one mile up the hill from
the Joaquin Miller Road exit off Highway 13, in one of the East Bay's most beautiful park locations. Unfortunately, there is currently no good public transportation option for reaching the Amphitheater.
exits are clearly marked off Highway 13. Go UP THE HILL (about 8/10 of
a mile) to the Woodminster sign on the left.

Take the Joaquin Miller Road exit and turn right to go UP THE HILL.
From San Francisco, take 580 East to Highway 24 (toward Walnut Creek).
Take this to Highway 13 SOUTH toward Hayward and follow Highway 13 until
you get to the Joaquin Miller Road exit. Turn left UP THE HILL.

The City of Oakland manages the parking in the park on performance nights,
and there is a $5.00 fee for parking in the lots around the theater. You
may park on Joaquin Miller Road for free, but be prepared to walk a considerable
distance to the amphitheater. See a more detailed description of parking options here.
