Getting Around AOCFEST


Your Gateway to All Things Cool

You’ve  locked in your plane ticket and booked your hotel using the festival group rates. You’ve even looked at the performance schedule and created your personal itinerary…now let’s talk about getting around AOCFEST. 

As you can see from the map, all the performance and conference venues are  conveniently located close together  which makes getting around that much easier.

Getting around downtown Durham as you move from workshop sessions, meetups and  day parties to performances will be simple and hassle-free!  All the venues are walkable within a few minutes of one another and with our partners at Go Durham you won’t have to worry about parking either!

Explore Durham From the Passenger Seat

Whether you are simply visiting the city for AOCFEST or you’re a local resident, the question on everyone’s mind is what is the best way to get to downtown and where exactly will you park your car? Cooligans have no fear!  We have the perfect solution to ease your mind and make your festival experience a breeze!

This year we are excited to partner with the incredible team at GoDurham to provide shuttle services to help our festival attendees get where they need go as safely and as quickly as possible!

Simply park at one of the park-and-ride locations, and let the professionals do the rest! Who doesn’t like to save time and gas money? Shuttle service will run every 20 minutes between 6 p.m. and 1 a.m. from the park-and-ride locations, so you won’t have to miss a show!

Check out the helpful ride guide and prepare to experience Art of Cool in a better way: from the passenger seat! Passes are only $2.00-4.50 for an all day pass!
