Naperville’s Ribfest at Knoch Park, Naperville, Illinois, is going paperless this year. North Park tickets are actually date specific RFID (radio frequency identification) wristbands. The wristbands will allow festival goers to enter the gate by scanning the wristband. The wristbands, which arrive activated for entrance to the park, have a second feature which allows guests to register their wristband and enter payment information for food and beverage at Ribfest.

Patrons who purchase “tickets” for the Navistar North Stage located in the North Park of Ribfest, prior to June 17th, will receive, by mail, RFID wristbands. For purchases made after June 17th, patrons will pick up their wristbands at one of two places: on-site at Ribfest or at Coldwell Banker The Real Estate Group located at 3124 S. Route 59 Suite 150, Naperville, Illinois. Coldwell Banker The Real Estate Group, Guaranteed Rate and Chevrolet are the sponsors for this year techno-wristbands.

Ribfest RFID and Gate volunteers will be at Coldwell Banker The Real Estate Group on Friday, June 29, and Saturday, June 30, from 10am-2pm to answer any questions and assist in getting RFID bracelets activated.
Guests purchasing South Park tickets online will receive tickets by email that will be scanned as in prior years. At the park, South Park guests can purchase a wristband for $1 if they want to use RFID feature to store credit card information.

South Park will feature local talent on the South Stage sponsored by Nissan. The southern realm of Ribfest hosts the carnival, Naperville Bank & Trust – A…
