Bus Directions (Recommended)
Take the Academy Bus Line from the PortAuthority at 42nd St/8th Ave Manhattan directly to Keansburg NJ. The bus will take you within one block of the festival entrance at 2 Beachway Ave. Get off at the “Pineview Stop” at the corner of Central/Pineview Ave. Let the bus driver know that you need to be taken to this stop because it’s been added specifically for the event, and doesn’t exist on the standard schedule. Even if you miss it (by ending up at the “Main Street” stop), you’ll still only be a few blocks away. Academy Bus Website
