Map of the Delaware River Festival - spanning both sides of the river, the festival is mostly on the Philadelphia side at Penn's Landing, accessible via the Pedestrian Bridge at Walnut St, a nearby subway stop at 2nd and Market, and by car with several parking lots nearby, including right next to the Independence Seaport Museum. The RiverLink Ferry connects you to the New Jersey side of the Festival at Wiggins Waterfront Park and Adventure Aquarium.
