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


We strongly encourage patrons to cycle, which saves money and reduces your carbon footprint and impact on the environment. We are proud to host a Bike Valet service free of charge 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.
