We strongly encourage taking public transportation to ease congestion on Randall’s Island Park; however, if you do choose to drive, there is parking available within walking distance of the FarmBorough site (see ‘Park It’).
Please note: Illegal parking on Randall’s Island Park fields, recreational land or any place not clearly marked as a designated parking area is strictly prohibited and may result in a fine of no less than $60 and/or a criminal court summons.
ABOUT RANDALL’S ISLAND PARK:
An oasis in the middle of New York City, Randall’s Island Park comprises most of an island in the East River, between East Harlem, the South Bronx and Astoria, Queens. The Park has undergone a remarkable transformation in recent years, bringing it out of disrepair due to Manhattan construction debris and transforming it once again into one of the city’s main recreation hubs.
RANDALL'S ISLAND PARK IS ACCESSIBLE BY:
Getting to Randall’s Island Park via subway and bus is easy!
Take the 4, 5, or 6 train to 125th street. Hop on the X80 express bus at 125th St & Lexington Ave, and the X80 will take you directly to the festival entrance.
Note that the X80 express bus does not accept monthly MetroCards, so please plan accordingly!
Please note: Individual and package Ferry passes are available for purchase on our "Buy Passes" page.
Festival Ferries will be traveling to and from Randall’s Island every 15 minutes starting at 1PM each day of the festival. The ferries to the island will stop at 9PM, and those from the island will stop once all ferry pass purchasers have left the island.
Departures will take place from East 35th St Ferry Landing – located at the intersection of East 35th St at the FDR Drive.

Cross the RFK Bridge from Manhattan/125th, Queens, or the Bronx and follow signs toward Icahn Stadium until you find signs for the festival. (15-30 minutes)
