- Gates open to public at 7 p.m. for fireworks. No admittance into park after the fireworks begin at 9:30 p.m.
- A no re-entry policy after 7 p.m. will be in place.
- 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 Main Stage. If the walkways remain open and clear and people can move around, the city will keep our gates open.
Admission is $10 for adults and children 11 and under will be admitted free.

Remember to get there early for a seat and bring a lawn chair. Have cash before you go because the ATM line is very long.
