Of course you can always drive, but isn’t it “Better by Bike”? August 30 is a very special day on the bike ferry — free to festival attendees, so why not take advantage of this? You can leave your car in Colchester’s Airport Park and follow the signs to the ferry. Then you can follow our suggested festival bike route. Please park and ride early to allow time to enjoy the charms of South Hero. The festival at Health Hero Farm is from 3pm to 6pm, and the bike ferry will be in operation until 7pm to accommodate festival attendees. Thanks to festival partner Local Motion and our sponsors for providing the free ferry ride!
