2013 Airport and Shuttle Information
The Festival provides a scheduled shuttle between the Grand Rapids, Michigan airport and the Festival site by pre-registration, for womyn arriving via plane, bus or train. Grand Rapids is the closest major airport to the Festival site, and the only airport we service with our Festival shuttle.
It is at least a two-hour drive between Grand Rapids and the Festival site. We schedule shuttles in order to allow time for you to arrive, go through Orientation and set up camp before dark. To utilize the Festival shuttle service, please plan your travel to match the shuttle times listed below. We cannot provide shuttle service at times other than those listed. Otherwise, you do have the option to arrange for a car rental or overnight housing in Grand Rapids to meet the next day's shuttle.
Allow at least 45 minutes from the time of your arrival in Grand Rapids to a scheduled shuttle departure. This will give you time to deplane, collect luggage, and board the bus. Shuttle buses will not wait for late arriving passengers. Upon receipt of your reservation form, we will schedule you on the appropriate bus.
