Sheridan Road construction update
There is a very good chance that construction on Sheridan Road will be completed before Saturday, July 16, 2011. Those driving to the festival from the north are able to enter the NU parking lot (which is three blocks north of Dawes Parkl) with no problem. If you are driving from the south, please check this page closer to the festival dates for an update on potential detours.
If you are driving to the festival from the south:
Take Sheridan Road to Church Street. To park, continue past the festival grounds to the NU parking lot 3 blocks north of the festival at the bend in the road (look for the signs). Continue driving straight into the parking lot (do not take the curve to the left). A free shuttle bus will travel between the garage and the festival grounds.
If you are driving to the festival from the north:
Take Sheridan Road and stay in the left lane as you travel past Northwestern University, because Sheridan jogs to the left (if you go straight you will be on Chicago Avenue). In about two blocks, you will see the NU parking garage entrance on your left, just before the road jogs to the right. A free shuttle bus will travel between the garage and the festival grounds.
