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!

  • There are daily buses available from several locations around the venue. Don’t bother with driving, parking or a designated driver. Additional pickup stations can be added according to demand. To reserve your seat, make sure to book in advance! Reserve a Seat!

  • 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 offer a complimentary Bike Valet to all travelers who choose to ride instead of drive.

  • 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.

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