Blarney Island is located in the middle of Grass Lake, one of the many lakes on the Chain-O-Lakes, in Antioch, Illinois. However, don't worry if you don't own a boat or don't know anyone who does. Blarney Island operates a Shuttle Service to and from The Island. Depending on the day the Shuttle Service departs from the Port of Blarney to Blarney Island at the top of the hour. If you are at Blarney Island the shuttle normally departs to return to the Port of Blarney at the bottom of the hour. We provide this service for nominal fee and that fee varies depending on the day of the week. Normal shuttle hours: Mon-Wed: 12N-8p, Thu-Sat: 12N-11p, Sun: 12N-9p,

This year we have made some changes to the fest, which we hope add to your enjoyment.
We would also like you to know that not only has the fest changed but also Jefferson Park as well. Construction has been done on new CVS Pharmacy at the corner of Lawrence and Milwaukee Avenue. We are also embarking on an unprecedented undertaking of placing a life-size statue of Thomas Jefferson, our namesake, in the soon to be revitalized Jefferson Park Transit Terminal. Renowned artist, Edward E. Hlavaka, is sculpting this magnificent piece of art to be placed at the center of the Jefferson Park Transportation hub. Plans are also in the works for a condominium mixed use development on Lawrence Avenue across from the Copernicus Foundation. We are also working on more projects with our Beautification Committee.
Please enjoy all the music food and fun! Remember your participation in our fest helps our community in many ways. We are trying to construct “Jefferson Park into all it can be”
Thanks for joining us!

Q. I'm planning on bringing my young child to the concert with me. Do I need to have a ticket for him/her?
A. Because of restrictions with square footage per person according to the fire and safety code every person, no matter what the age, will need a ticket to enter the concert area.
Q. What can I bring into the festival grounds?
A. You can only bring what you have on your back. If you are carrying a backpack, purse, fannypack or anything that you can conceal something in you will be asked to empty it so we may search it. This line may be long and prevent you from entering the festival/concert area. Your best bet is to leave it at home! If you bring a blanket or towel they will be shook out. You may not bring in any outside food or drink (including water & juice). We appreciate your cooperation.
