How do I get to Riot Fest?
We strongly urge festival attendees to either take public transportation, ride a bicycle, or take a cab or ride-sharing service to Riot Fest. These are the most effective, environmentally sound, and neighborly methods to get to Douglass Park. The CTA Pink Line’s California Ave stop is just blocks away from the festival entrance—it’s the most convenient route to the fest.
