Please note that the City of Raleigh requires:
  • all marchers to stay on the sidewalks (not in the roads/way of traffic as we have a picket permit; roads will NOT be closed)
  • signs to be less than 3 feet by 3 feet in size, and not mounted on any poles/wooden sticks (nothing that can be used as a weapon)
  • no wearing of any masks/objects that obstruct the face
  • no use of amplified sound during the March

Getting there

By Car
Note that due to our event and others happening on the same day, parking may be difficult, and some decks may be closed.  Please see our route map to the right for closed areas and parking options.

If you would like to drive to Downtown Raleigh for the March, there are several area public parking decks (for a fee) and some street parking (for a fee). 

By Bus
We are working to provide support for attendees to share a bus from various locations in NC to travel to the March in downtown Raleigh.  Sign up using the form on this page to show your interest in joining the bus!

Alternatively, there is public transportation.  The main bus terminal for GoRaleigh, Moore Square Station, is across the street from the end of the March, Science Fair, and Rally.  Please refer to the GoRaleigh website for information on fares, routes, and fees.

Greyhound Buslines also has a Raleigh station, but it is not near the downtown area.  There may be a GoRaleigh local bus that connects the Greyhound terminal to downtown.

By Train
Amtrak serves Raleigh though a station near Downtown Raleigh.  It is a long walk, or a short Uber/Lyft/etc, to the march.

Thank you to Michael Hall for generating the route and Moore Square GIS maps!
