We’re conveniently located near downtown Ottawa within walking or cycling distance of Parliament Hill.

OC Transpo service is included in the cost of every festival admission pass. Ride the bus to and from the festival, starting 3 hours before gates open until 2 hours after the gates close. Plan your trip: octranspo.com 


Yup! You can do this too. RBC Bluesfest actually has supervised valet bike parking! Our Bike Park is located just steps away from the festival site.


The taxi stand is located on Booth St, heading Southbound at Vimy Ridge.This space is not open to private vehicles.


For most patrons, this is not the best option. Please plan in advance if you intend to use this transportation option. Read more.


Just kidding. Although we are located by the Ottawa River, we don't recommend this form of transportation due to rapids.
