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 Stages. If the walkways remain open and clear and people can move around, the city will keep our gates open.
Ribfest works with the ABC 7 Chicago Weather team and NEMA volunteers to monitor the weather approaching Ribfest. Ribfest will temporarily close during any period where lightning is present. All guests will be asked to leave the park at that time. When the lightning is safely past the park, Ribfest will reopen.
Guests can also listen to FM 95.9 The River for updates on weather and gate reopening. Park Closing details can also be received by signing up on Twitter - @Ribfest_NXC
