Venue & Accessibility
The venue is a large, grassy hillside overlooking the Illinois Valley. There is very little flat surface so blanket seating is recommended. You can bring a tent or umbrella for shade, but try to be respectful of others when staking your spot. The hill is pretty steep. Depending on where you choose to sit, the climb varies between slightly challenging and quite challenging. We will have two porta pots and a hand washing station on site.

Kevin Kramer will be providing music from 5-8 pm!

Parking is limited. We will have a person guiding arrivals into parking spots the first hour of the event. If no parking attendant is present, please follow the layout and conserve more spots for others arriving later.


You will receive a confirmation email when your reserve your parking spot. The directions are at the bottom of that email.
