With very limited parking and lots of traffic, public transportation is by far the best way to get to the Festival. There will be other events happening on the Camden Waterfront the weekend of the festival so we strongly urge you to take public transportation whenever possible.
Here are some great alternatives to driving to the Festival:
If you’re coming from Philly the Ferry is a great option. It drops you off right at the Festival entrance and runs every 1/2 hour.
Ferry service for the weekend of the XPoNential Music Festival will run express concert service (as soon as it is full it will depart as needed) and up to a ½ hour after the event ends each night.
Light Rail, River Line Park & Ride
Convenient riverfront service. With 20 nearby stations from Trenton to Camden, including stops right in the heart of the Waterfront, it’s much more convenient than driving, and there is FREE parking at most River LINE stations. The River Line has connections to PATCO, BurLink, and NJ TRANSIT Rail and Bus. Park and ride. The nearby 36th Street (Camden), Pennsauken Transit Center, Pennsauken/Rt 73 stations offer free parking. Complete River Line information and schedules* here.
*NOTE: The RiverLINE schedule indicates that the last train departs at 9:29pm, however the RiverLINE does provide service for Concertgoers, who board a train at the Entertainment stop (at BB&T). The train does not leave until everyone is on board who needs to be. This train takes riders back to the Pennsauken/Rt 73 Park and Ride, where riders exit the train and, free of charge, board a New Jersey Transit bus that takes them to each RiverLINE stop all the way back to Trenton. Riders need to purchase a ticket at the platform before getting on the Riverline from an automated machine.

Due to construction and events at the Waterfront this year, parking lots with discounted pricing for the XPoNential Music Festival are very limited.
The closest discounted parking lots (which will cost $10) are located on Federal Street as you head toward the Waterfront. Look for the electronic signs that say “XPoNential Music Festival Parking.” Once the Federal Street lots are full, you can choose to head north (turn right on South Delaware/Jersey Joe Walcott Blvd) for additional discounted Festival lots located just above the Ben Franklin Bridge OR head south (turn left on S. Delaware Ave) to park in BB&T Pavilion lots (which will cost $30).
Reminder – another option is to park for free at the 36th Street or Pennsauken Park and Ride lots and take the Riverline train which stops right at the Camden Waterfront. More info under “Light Rail, River Line Park & Ride” section above. Click here for complete information and details.
If you are not able to get into a designated discounted parking lot the price for parking is $30+.
