ADA Accommodations

We are so glad you are considering Ribfest as place to come and enjoy Music, Food and Fun, all while supporting a great cause!

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.  The ADA compliant seating area in the Main Stage viewing area is raised and has a ramp. The ADA area does not provide seating so you, and your guests, should bring your own seats. 

In terms of entering the park, we often recommend guests with mobility issues 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 come early, is also a good option, 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 2017 Ribfest map is available here
