What you need to know for the 2016 festival...

Rain or shine means just that.  The show must go on!

Lyran Park sits just south of Rockford Airport on the bank of the Kishwaukee River.  Here is a map of the area:


Lyran Park is a beautiful setting.  The stage is on the bank of the Kishwaukee River just before it flows into the Rock River.  The part rolls gently up a nice, slight grass-covered slope.  The park is covered in mature hardwood tree with great shade while not interfering with sight lines.

Here is the layout:

No outside coolers, food or beverages please (dietary restrictions excepted).  Please bring chairs or a blanket.

No pets, please.

Free parking.  Golf carts shuttle from lot to gate to seating area.  Handicap parking along storm fence next to gate.  Shuttles will run all day and night along paved path.  Park immediately and walk to gate

No seating on pavement; dancing only!  No golf carts will be driving on pavement or grass in front of stage while bands are playing.

Camping is $20 per night (Friday and/or Saturday).
