Lincolnwood Fest 2022 kicks off with new features and guidelines

LINCOLNWOOD, IL – Lincolnwood Fest, the village’s signature summer festival, begins Thursday and ends Sunday at Henry Proesel Park.

Carnival rides, free shows and the classic car show return for the 2022 edition of the four-day family festival.

New this year include an arts and crafts fair and a family tent, both of which will be open on Saturday and Sunday.

The park rides will be open from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Thursday, 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Friday, 1 p.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday.

The classic car show, an annual favorite, is scheduled to take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday.

The festival’s beer and wine garden will be open Thursday and Friday from 5 p.m., Saturday at 3:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2:30 p.m. and will remain open each day until the band’s last performance, according to organizers.

Festival organizers have also introduced new safety guidelines this year. The festival will be enclosed by fences, with entrances and exits located on the east and west sides of Proesel Park.

“The Village asks for everyone’s cooperation regarding these new safety measures so that a safe environment is in place to fully enjoy the festival experience,” the staff announced.

Organizers have discouraged attendees from bringing larger backpacks and handbags, which will be searched by private security personnel. No weapons of any kind will be allowed inside the festival grounds.

Parking is prohibited in the Town Hall car parks or in the circular driveway in front of the Town Hall, but vacant spaces that are not marked for the disabled are available for festival-goers, as long as drivers do not block sidewalks or walkways, according to village staff. .
