📍 Getting Here - Randall’s Island Park
The festival will take place at the Harlem River Event site on Randall’s Island Park which is located directly behind Icahn Stadium. Please click here to view Randall's Island Park on Google Maps. More information can be found on the park website here.
Attendees can take the 4, 5 or 6 trains to 125th street and transfer to the M35 bus to Randall’s Island.
Walking & Biking
You can get here by crossing the RFK Bridge from Manhattan/125th Street (about 15 minutes walking), RFK Bridge from Queens (about 30 minutes walking), or the RFK Bridge from the Bronx (about 15 minutes walking).
Attendees can also walk across the footbridge from E. 103rd St. in Manhattan directly into Randall's Island Park (about 25 minutes walking). If you plan on biking to the fest, we strongly recommend that you come via the 103rd street footbridge!
You can also take the Randall’s Island Connector from the Bronx, which runs under the arches of the Hell Gate Bridge railroad trestle between 132nd Street at Willow/Walnut Avenues and the northern shore of Randall’s Island Park.
Please note that there is absolutely no parking available on-site, so we encourage you to walk, bicycle, use ride-share services, and/or take public transportation!
Convenient off-island parking for a fee is available on the Manhattan side of the 103rd Street Footbridge, at MPG Garage 440 E 102nd Street.

💃 DRESS FOR THE FEST:
The photo ops are endless this year so be sure to come in your best festival clothes! Don’t forget to bring sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat - the event will go on rain or shine!
🍻 STOP BY OUR BARS:
We'll be serving up beer, ciders, hard kombucha, cocktails, and non-alcoholic drink options to quench your thirst and keep the party going all day long! Pop by one of our two bar locations to enjoy a cold one in our designated lounge area before waiting in line for food.
🎒 WHAT TO BRING:
We suggest taking out cash ahead of time, as cash is the preferred payment method, but many vendors will also accept cards and our bar is cashless, so please have your credit cards and/or debit cards handy as well.
Waters, blankets, chairs and umbrellas are all allowed into the fest. You may also bring a bag or backpack, which will be checked by security at the entrance.
🚰 STAYING HYDRATED:
Water will be available at our refillable water stations so we recommend bringing a reusable water bottle. We will also be selling water at the bar.
Get excited for extravagant art installations, live sets from DJs throughout the day, a surprise performance by a special guest, and chances to win some amazing prizes.
🐶🛑 LEAVE PETS AT HOME:
Given the loud music and large crowd, Vegandale can be a stressful and overwhelming situation for animals so we ask that you please leave your pets at home.
⏳ EXPECT LINES:
You’re heading to the fastest-growing vegan festival in the world! We suggest you plan ahead, divide and conquer, and grab a drink at one of our two bar locations while you wait.
