Many roads lead to Forecastle! We encourage our patrons to travel as responsibly and sustainably as they can. Here are a few of our travel recommendations:

  • Parking

    Parking is available at The Galt House as well as many other lots within walking distance of the festival grounds. Click here for a map.

  • Cycling

    We strongly encourage patrons to cycle, which saves money and reduces your carbon footprint and impact on the environment. We are proud to offer a complimentary Bike Valet presented by MailChimp to all travelers who choose to ride instead of drive.

  • Public Transportation

    Forecastle is located in the middle of Louisville’s transit network, and is particularly well-served by TARC routes 31, 15, 43, 55, 17, 2, 1, 4, 6 and 18. Visit Ride TARC for more information.

  • Ground Transportation

    Another great option is City Scoot - the first fully insured designated driver service in the United States. Operating in and around downtown, City Scoot is a new and unique way to travel around Louisville. There’s also a large fleet of helpful Louisville taxi services that’ll pick you up and drop you off, wherever you might be.

  • Uber

    Need a ride to the Waterfront? Try Uber! Uber is a mobile app that connects you to your own private driver at the click of a button. Open the app, request a car and it will be curbside within minutes. All rides are billed directly to your credit card – there’s no need to carry cash and it’s 20% cheaper than a taxi. Sign up with the code FORECASTLE and get $30 off your first ride!
