Alternative Transportation

We strive to be a zero-waste event, and encourage all attendees to come to the festival by means other than a motorized vehicle. Thanks to the city’s new bike routes, including the newly opened Lafitte Greenway, you can ride your bicycle all the way to the festival from virtually every corner of the city. (PLENTY OF BIKE PARKING AVAILABLE). You can even come by canoe, kayak, or other paddle-fiendly vessel. Dock at the Dumaine Street stage or just keep paddling into the heart of the festival at Orleans Avenue. You’ll be glad you used non-motorized transportation, and so will our neighbors. We’re looking forward to seeing your healthy and happy selves strolling to-and-through the festival. PLEASE ENSURE YOU ARE READY TO PRESENT YOUR TICKET AT ANY POINT OF ENTRANCE!
