Parking & Shuttle Map

NOTE: Our 2023 event layout map includes some exciting extra space! There is now a large gate into the baseball diamond so that we can use the entire outfield! Several of our wineries will serve from this space, and we have an exciting new display included in that area as well.

Shuttle Service Available All Weekend in N. Utica!

#IllinoisWineFans we will once again have shuttle service from our friends at North Central Area Transit – NCAT. NCAT provides public transportation for LaSalle County, and several of their drivers have volunteered for this event. Shuttle service will provide you the most direct access to the admissions tent. Boarding the shuttle is easy: we recommend parking in one of the two areas secured by North Utica and designated on the map below:

Shuttle Service Parking Lots (FREE PARKING)

  • Neighbors Park, 600 Norman St., N. Utica
  • Knights of Columbus, 500 Hitt St., N. Utica

Shuttle Service Hours of Operation:

  • Saturday 9/16/23: 9:30 am – 7:00 pm
  • Sunday 9/17/23: 10:30 am – 6:00 pm

Helpful Tips on the Shuttle:

  • The shuttle is not recommended for riders with large items. If your group has a number of large items we recommend that you drop off one or more members in your party at the event site, and then drive to the shuttle parking lots.
  • Please consider a per person donation per trip to help offset NCAT expenses. We need to keep these drivers happy so our shuttle service can continue each year!
  • The shuttles will run continuously, so wait times should be minimal.
  • If you are staying at Grand Bear Lodge, the front desk will have phone numbers for the shuttle drivers, and can request a pick up on your behalf.
  • Shuttle parking lots are unstaffed.

Public Parking Adjacent to Vintage Illinois:

Ample public parking is available on local streets and parking lots in N. Utica for easy walking access to Vintage. Some parking lots are privately owned and may have a parking fee. For those that might like direct access to the entry tent we recommend parking in one of the two lots designated for shuttle service.


Just outside the secure festival area, and within an easy walking distance, you will find some great local eateries and shops.

Also just outside the festival grounds you’ll have access to more than 50 artisan vendor booths set up for an expanded CANAL MARKET weekend just for Vintage Illinois.
