Few suggestions for everyone based on reading the forum....
If coming I-65N traffic is awful (minimum 30 minutes from the Watterson Expressway I-264 to downtown). ALSO for anyone arriving after Friday I-65N will be CLOSED from 7pm Friday evening until Monday morning from I-264 to the bridge so you will be forced to detour.
My recommendation - If driving on I-65N take the exit towards the Watterson Expressway (I-264) and you want to go EAST. This should keep you away from the majority of the traffic. Once on I-264E take you second exit (Newburg Road) and turn left at the light at the end of the exit. Newburg Rd goes straight and turns into Baxter Ave and is less crowded and has less lights than Bardstown Road. Baxter Ave will turn into Jefferson St (one way into downtown) so you can continue straight and turn RIGHT on 2nd Street. Go up two blocks and turn LEFT on Main St. and the Galt House is on your RIGHT.
I really appreciate the heads-up and the advice on an alternate route. Newburg Rd. looks like a reasonable alternative and only adds 2 miles to the trip from Nashville. I haven't looked closely at it, but they should really have a note about this on the festival website.

I-65 construction facts: 65 north will be closed all weekend, all lanes (north only), from 264 to downtown! Plan accordingly. The easiest and least confusing option would be to do a circle around the city using the xpressways. I'd get off 65 at I-265 (east or north - the farthest right ramp), the gene Snyder. Take that to 264, going east on 264 this will take you all the way into downtown, you'll be on your own from there. I-64 & 71 are both open with no construction spots that I know of. Sorry if any or all of this has been said, I just wanted to give a heads up to the board.¦}

Suppose to be packing, but in tinychat. Leaving around 11am in the morning. I'm quite sad that we day passers can't go back to the hotel. I'm sure I will be soaking wet by the time it gets cold at night. I'll probably be wearing an inforoo shirt so if you see me say HI!
