Rain or Shine!
Located at the Historic Coast Guard Station on Whiskey Island. Whiskey Island is located on the immediate western shore of the Cuyahoga River where the river empties into Lake Erie. To get there, head to the lower part of Edgewater State Park located directly off of Ohio Route 2 between the Clifton Boulevard Exit and the West 45th Street Exit.
Get off Ohio Route 2 at the Edgewater Park/Whiskey Island Exit and head north towards Lake Erie. PARKING AND SHUTTLES ARE LOCATED AT EDGEWATER PARK - LOOK FOR THE SIGNS!
If you're walking or riding your bike to the Fest: Turn right on the first and only road on your right (now heading east). Keep veering to the right and follow the road as you wind past the Sewer District Plant Operations (on your left). Keep following the road, which will end at the Whiskey Island Marina guard gate. Look for the Burning River Fest signage that will direct you to the Fest!
We look forward to seeing you at Burning River Fest 2013! We now offer a variety of online ticket options including One-Day Passes, Weekend Passes and VIP Passes. Kids 12 and under are FREE!
Online Tickets (available now through July 25 Noon EST):
*VIP PASSES: Treat yourself to a little luxury at this year's Burning River Fest by helping to fundraise for the Burning River Foundation. Purchase a VIP ticket and we'll treat you to an exclusive VIP experience, including access to the VIP lounge and viewing platform, complimentary Great Lakes Brewing Company's® award-winning beer and a fresh catered meal and snacks throughout the day, and the chance to mingle with our great guests like environmentalist Dr. Marcus Eriksen and GLBC owners. We like to call our VIPs VWPs, or Valued Water Protectors, because all of your support for the Foundation supports ongoing work in clean water in Northeast Ohio. VIP passes are good for one day admission!
FREE parking will be available at Edgewater Park (shuttles to Whiskey Island will run continuously). Carpooling is strongly encouraged (4 or more people per vehicle--it's better for the planet)! Or, ride your bike and park right on Whiskey Island in the safe and secure Ohio City Bike Co-Op bike corral!
