How The Heck Do I Get To Riot Fest?The map is here! Here’s a guide to taking a train, bike, or car to Douglass Park this weekend
We suggest taking public transportation, riding a bicycle, taking a cab, or using a ride sharing service to get to Riot Fest. These are the most effective, environmentally sound, and right-neighborly methods to get to Douglass Park. The CTA Pink Line’s California Ave. stop is just blocks away from the festival entrance, and is probably the most convenient route to the fest.
The entrance to Riot Fest is located at the intersection of W. Ogden Ave. & S. Sacramento Dr. Chicago, IL 60623. Check out a map and detailed arrival instructions below.

TAKING THE BUS? OR A TRAIN?
Via the Pink Line L Train
Just around the corner from the entrance to Riot Fest, this is the most convenient way to get to Riot Fest & Carnival in Douglas Park. Board the Pink Line and exit the train at the California stop.
Once off the train, head north on California, make a left (west) on 19th St., then a right on Albany Ave. Head north on Albany Ave, then turn right on Ogden Ave. and the Riot Fest entrance will be on your right at the corner of Ogden Ave. and Sacramento Dr. Total distance is only .71 miles.
