We work with a variety of travel partners from year to year to make sure our guests that travel to the festival from all over the country (and the world) have the best (and most affordable) accommodations possible.
Please check out our hotel partners for the special Pygmalion Festival rate and book your stay. In addition to that, if you’re traveling to the festival, check out how to get here by air or ground, and how to get around C-U when you’re here, whether that is by bike, public transit, or your own vehicle.

Champaign-Urbana has one of the best public transportation systems in the country. We’re not joking. If you’re looking to get around town during the festival, please consider using public transportation via Champaign-Urbana Mass Transit District (MTD). They are kind of the best.
If you are like us, you dig bike culture. Fortunately for us, we have a number of awesome bike shops in town, and Neutral Cycle will help provide the best biking experience in town throughout your time at the festival.
Rent a bike for the festival, it’ll be fun. We promise.
MobileMeter is transforming the way you park in Champaign-Urbana. Directly from your smartphone, you can pay for parking with such ease, it is kind of crazy. Believe us, we use it regularly. No more coins. Whether you’re on iPhone or Android, you can download MobileMeter and if you’re driving to the festival and using parking around the venues, check out MobileMeter. Of course, drive responsibly, friends.
TRAVEL TO C-U
Willard Airport has all of the benefits of air travel without any of the hassle. Whether you are heading to the Pygmalion Festival or traveling around the world, FLY-CU to support your hometown airport, your local economy and for your own convenience.
Amtrak is located literally two blocks from the heart of the festival in Downtown Champaign — and they provide what we’d consider the most enjoyable and relaxed form of transit to the festival from outside of Champaign-Urbana. You should totally look into heading to Pygmalion this year via train, sit back and enjoy the ride.
