Free water will be provided on the festival grounds by Methodist Dallas Medical Center, and a place to cool off will be provided by NOVEL Bishop Arts. Both are sponsors of Go Oak Cliff, and we’re lucky to have them!

PLEASE NOTE: street closures on Bishop Ave. from 7th St. through 9th St. begin on Sunday morning. Cars will begin to be towed at 7:00 a.m. This is a bummer part of an event like this that we want everyone to avoid. Thanks for understanding!

Bastille on Bishop Biking & Public Transportation

Bust out your bike and park safely at the Bishop Arts Bike Parking Corral right near Bishop Arts Street Market, courtesy of Bike Friendly Oak CliffBikeDFW. Please remember to bring your own bike lock! The corral will be monitored by volunteers from 5 p.m. - 11 p.m. (the duration of the event). Volunteers will provide you with a claim ticket when you park your bike. We also highly recommend public transportation, and DART's electric streetcar is not only free, it also drops off just a short distance away from the event entrance, at Zang and Davis. Service begins at 5:30 a.m. and the cars run until midnight, making connections with the final DART Rail trains at Union Station. Trains operate every 20 minutes.



A scooter drop point will be set up near the event, in areas that are within a mile of Bastille on Bishop. Throughout the night, Scooter services will be ensuring there are enough scooters at the drop point, as well as at the event entrance. (Worth noting: you need to download the Lime or Bird app to unlock them, and you must also have a driver's license.)

Listed below is a main scooter drop point, where you can park and ride.


Kidd Springs Park's public parking will have a scooter drop point. The parking lot is off Canty, on the south side of the map of Kidd Springs Park.


In addition to the scooter drop point, Exxir Capital has also made available its larger parking lot at the corner of Bishop Ave. & 9th St., which is in walking distance to the back of the event.

Entry to Bastille on Bishop

Redeem your ticket for a wine glass and tokens near DIRT Flowers, due just south of 7th St. on Bishop Ave.

There will be two types of lines at registration: “Pre-Purchased Tickets”, and “New Purchases”

Pre-Purchased Tickets: This is the line you should get in if you purchased your tickets on Prekindle.

New Purchases: Wine glass package prices increase by $5.00 on the day of the event! This is the line you should get in if you rolled the dice and managed to get a wine glass before they sold out (there will be very, very limited on-site availability. Fair warning!)

ALL lines serve as ID checks for those who picked up glasses and tokens early. Simply pick the lightest line, and get in it. You must have your glasses and tokens with you!

A special, heartfelt thank you to our Bastille on Bishop vendors, volunteers, and to our sponsors:
