PARKING IS EASIER THAN EVER
Make parking so easy by parking at Geimer's Greenhouses (Saturday and Sunday only) after 10 AM. Geimer's Greenhouses is located on Hicks Rd. (Old Rt. 53) about 1/4 mile north of Lake-Cook Road. (847) 358-6363. The shuttle, sponsored by Holiday Inn Express (Palatine/Arlington Heights), will run every 20 minutes. That leaves enough time to browse for perennials and Mother's Day plants at Geimer's! Shuttle meets at the gazebo in town next to the Fire Station. The Shuttle runs from Geimer's Parking Lot Gazebo to Long Grove's Archer Parking Lot Gazebo. PLEASE NOTE: THE LAST SHUTTLE LEAVES LONG GROVE AT 5 PM SHARP BOTH DAYS!

Park Closing Due to Crowd Capacity:
The decision to close the gates of Ribfest due to crowd density is the decision of the City of Naperville Police Department in concert with Ribfest leadership. Their decision to close for public safety is based on the ability of people to get out of the park in case of emergency. Crowd density is determined by examination of the flow of people primarily by the music stage. If the walkways remain open and clear and people can move around, the city will keep our gates open.
