Take a Citibike! Citibike is a great way to get around the Island! See HERE for a map of Citbike docs. 


Prepare to Walk: With 18 stages and more than 250 acts to see, you may end up covering a lot of ground! Choose your footwear wisely, and if you have small children, consider a stroller or wagon.


Note that the fastest way to get from Nolan Park to Colonel’s Row is through Fort Jay, which is open to the public and will feature live music from 11am-330pm! 

Embrace the Serendipitous: With so many concerts happening all at once, the best way to enjoy Porch Stomp is to simply wander and see what you discover! 


Stay Safe in the Sun!  Porch Stomp is a long day in the sun! Be sure to wear sunblock, and bring a refillable water bottle. See HERE for a map of water fountain locations. 


Stay Charged: Given the limited access to power on Governors Island, we highly recommend bringing a extra battery pack for your phone. 

Check out what else is happening! In addition to Porch Stomp, there's a ton of other programming happening on Governors Island on Saturday, from a market to an art installation to countless workshops and talks. Read more about it all HERE. 


Accessibility: All ferries going to and from Governors Island, as well as the grounds of the island itself, are accessible to those in wheelchairs. Not all buildings on the island are wheelchair-accessible. Building 110, located next to Soissons Landing, is wheelchair accessible. Wheelchair-accessible portable toilets are located throughout the grounds. Wheelchair-accessible trams are available to guests Friday-Sunday.


For those with accessibility issues: unfortunately Porch Stomp does not have a dedicated security golf cart in 2024. However, there will be Governors Island staff floating around the ferry landings who you can flag down for assistance, or take the tram (info HERE).
