Getting to Red Hook Fest
You can easily reach the 25th Annual Red Hook Fest via bus, subway, ferry, water taxi, or our free shuttle!
None of the subways currently reach IKEA, but our free shuttle bus will stop at the Smith and 9th Street F/G subway on its route to Red Hook Fest. If the F/G is not convenient for you, there are 2/3/4/5/A/C/G/N/Q/R stops within walking distance of the B57 and B61 buses.
The B57 and B61 buses stop in Downtown Brooklyn. From there, both buses take a route to Beard and Ostego, right in front of IKEA.
There are ferry stops around the city. You can view the South Brooklyn route here, with directions and times to reach Red Hook Fest.
Alternatively, you can take the Water Taxi to Red Hook Fest.
Biking may be one of the most pleasant ways to enjoy the commute to Red Hook. The 5-mile route below showcases many of the city’s most beautiful and historic landmarks, taking you along the scenic waterfront, and ending at the Red Hook Fest waterfront main stage event.
Red Hook is easily accessible via car. We highly recommend checking your favorite app for directions the day of the festival as construction, traffic, and other events may affect your route.
