Getting there

There are three major international airports servicing the New York City area - John F. Kennedy, Newark Liberty, and LaGuardia.

The two easiest and most efficient ways to get to Randall's Island are the Special Event Ferry and the festival shuttle. The Special Event Ferry leaves from the East 35th Street Ferry Terminal in Midtown Manhattan, leaving approximately every 15 minutes from 11:30am until 9pm. Ferries running back to Manhattan will continue running until all festival guests have left the island. Festival shuttle busses will run from a location in Williamsburg (TBD) to the festival from 11am to 6pm. Shuttle seats are limited, and tickets should be purchased in advance.

More information will be here when available.
