We are so glad you are considering Ribfest as a 4th of July weekend option.
There are sidewalks and pavement in some of the main areas for Ribfest, but Ribfest remains mostly grassy, particularly in the rib vendor area and the seating area for the concerts.
We have areas set aside for mobility compromised patrons and their companions in both music areas and handicapped accessible restrooms throughout the park.
NAVISTAR MAIN STAGE/NORTH PARK and SOUTH PARK STAGE
The ADA compliant seating area in the Main Stage and South Stage viewing areas are raised and have ramps. The ADA areas do not provide seating so you, and your guests, should bring your own seats.
For guests with a FULL PARK ticket (Full Park General Admission, Front of Stage, Skybox and VIP/Sponsor). Enter through the North Park Entrance as there is a permanent sloped ramp installed on Hillside and ADA parking at Naperville Central HS. The East Entrance, if you arrive early, is also a good option for all ticket holders, as there is ADA parking at Martin Manor and patrons enter on flat pavement.
Free remote ADA parking and free shuttles are available as well. Our 2018 Ribfest map, when available will be available here.
For South Park only ticket holders, consider parking remotely for free and taking the free shuttle with drop off on West Street at the South Gate. Or, carpool to the South Gate entrance, enter and meet your friends/family inside the gate after they park. There is ADA parking directly across from the South Gate Entrance but it fills up early in the day and is closed on the 4th (FIREWORKS DAY). South Park ticket holders may also enter through the East Gate.
Wheelchair rental is not available to Ribfest nor is transportation provided within the park.
To schedule an American Sign Language interpreter for a Ribfest 2018 Navistar Stage headliner performance, please email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Don't forget to include the performance date in your request as requests for an interpreter must be received at least 48 hours before the event to ensure an interpreter is available.[Advance notice also allows our dedicated interpreters time to study the play list!] Note: ADA seating is available at both stages. Ask to be directed to the ADA viewing platform. Thank you for considering Ribfest for your 4th of July weekend!
