Supernova is a free, light-based art exhibit and community celebration. Building off of last year's success, Supernova brings spectacle, light, art and color to the new Greenway Plaza and Greenway Station open-air pavilion.

The Greenway's biggest fundraiser of 2021, combing the spirits of the Greenway Soiree and the Greenway Fest that could not take place in 2021 due to COVID-19, into one joyous weekend. Sponsorships and gifts from this exhibit are the Greenway's most critical source of funding for the Greenway's care, programs, plantings, and projects in the year ahead.

Getting There - Bike & Car Parking

Biking and walking are the best way to visit Supernova. Bike parking is available at the roundabout where the Greenway meets Norman C. Francis Pkwy.

Car parking is permitted in Parkway Bakery & Tavern's Parking Lot (538 Hagan Ave).

We want to ensure that the event is as safe and seamless an experience for all involved – including residents of the neighborhood. Guests are encouraged to observe the parking options and restrictions of the area, which includes no parking on the uptown side of Lafitte Avenue.
