PARKING

Parking in the village during the festival can be a challenge, so plan to arrive early and park in one of the satellite parking lots ($5.00 donation to a local non-profit) and take a FREE shuttle bus, which run continuously during the day. You can find parking lot locations on the Festival Map.

For all GPS or mapping program users: type in 225 West Street (Warwick Middle/High School) or 10 Park Ave (Park Avenue Elementary School) both in Warwick, New York, which will bring you designated parking lots where you can park your car for $5, and then take a free shuttle bus right into the heart of the festival.

Free shuttle buses will run continuously between satellite parking areas ($5.00 parking) — at the Warwick Middle School, Warwick Valley High School, Park Avenue School, and Memorial Park on Forester Avenue — and the heart of the festival area.

Handicapped parking is located at the Warwick Valley Middle School.

By Bus

On Saturday, the day before Applefest, there is a bus from NYC’s Port Authority to the Village of Warwick, and you can stay overnight (see lodging information on dropdown menu).

IMPORTANT NOTE – Because of the heavy traffic on Sunday – the day of Applefest –buses are unable to come into the Village.

If you take a bus on Saturday (the day before Applefest), (NJ TRANSIT 196/197) you can take the bus right to the Village and stay in one of our lovely Bed & Breakfast inns.  Some B & Bs are located within easy walking distance from the bus stop near Burger King, as well as the festival site. Then you don’t have to worry about parking at all.

Reservations are a must for this busy weekend!
