After already the poster was proposed, the program is now virtually fixed. The City of Ghent, De Lijn and the NMBS are doing everything they can to organize the way to and from the Festive Zone in an optimal way.
For example, there are 10 fully accessible activities on the program, 65 reserved parking spaces will be set up for people with disabilities and additional adapted sanitary facilities have been provided. People with disabilities can also count on free assistance to discover the Gentse Feesten, every day from 14 pm to 23 pm. All measures are bundled on the Ghent Festivities website.
Do you want the full Gentse Feesten experience? Then do the real thing right away and come by bike. No bike? No problem! You can borrow orange city bikes in Ghent from Donkey Republic or blue electric bikes from Dott† Are you planning to come to the Feesten with your entire offspring?

Taxis will be waiting for you at Sint-Pietersstation, Dampoortstation or other strategic places. Please note that taxis are also no longer allowed to drive in the Festive Zone after 13 pm.
