MAGFest takes place at the Gaylord National Hotel & Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland. National Habor is located mere minutes from Washington DC and northern Virginia, so there are many easy ways to get to the venue.


By Car

The Gaylord Hotel is located right next to the Washington DC Beltway. Driving directions can be found on the Gaylord website.

Unfortunately, Parking within National Harbor itself may become full during the weekend. There are nearby parking options at the Huntington Metro Station in Alexandria, VA and the Oxon Hill Park & Ride lot, both connecting to National Harbor via the NH2 Bus line.

By Rideshare

National Harbor is easily accessible by most rideshare services. We'll post any discount codes here as we get them.
