Sunday July 15, 2018
10 AM - 6 PM
Belle Isle, Detroit
The Festival will take places at the Belle Isle Cricket Field, right next to the Belle Isle Casino.
Lots of parking is available right next to the field.
The bike path and sidewalk connect Detroit to the island on the left side of the bridge. Use the sidewalk to come from the Riverfront Bike Path or from the Dequindre Cut. Eastern Market and the Downtown Riverfront are two convenient places to park if you want to bike in! Entry to the park is free for cyclists.
Bus riders can access Belle Isle via the No. 12 Conant route. The service runs roughly every 50 minutes to Belle Isle between 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m on Sundays. You will not have to pay the park entry fee, only the $1.50 bus fare. The Festival is a short walking distance from the bus stop.
Parking will be available directly next to the Festival. Take a right after crossing the bridge, then take the second left on Fountain Way. Drivers will need to pay for a recreation passport. This costs $11.00 per car and $5.00 per motorcycle for Michigan residents and $31.00 for non-Michigan residents. Once purchased, the recreation passport will allow you to visit the island unrestricted until your car registration is due.
We will have convenient parking for those with special needs. For further assistance, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
