Where is Herbstalk located and how can I get there?
Herbstalk takes place at The Center for the Arts at the Armory, located at 191 Highland Ave. in Somerville, MA.
The Armory is approximately a 15-minute walk from Davis Square which is on the MTBA Red Line.
You can also arrive by using an MBTA bus that can be caught either at Lechmere (#88 bus) or Davis Square (#90 or #88 bus). Get off at the Highland Avenue and Lowell Street stop. Or you can arrive from Sullivan Square (#90 bus). Get off at the Highland Avenue and Benton Road stop.
What about parking?
Parking at the Armory is limited, so we strongly encourage you to carpool or take public transportation. There is a lot directly behind the building as well as two overflow lots within walking distance. These lots are located at 112 Central St. and 75 Belmont St. Parking is also available at the Somerville City Hall at 93 Highland Avenue. Here’s a map of the parking lot options.
If possible, please take public transportation, bike or carpool. The Davis Square T is only a leisurely 15-minute walk from the Armory. Hubway bikes are available at Davis Sq. and we’ll also have bike racks out front for easy parking.
