Rocktoberfest FREE SHUTTLE – Saturday, October 8, 2016 (4pm until midnight)

Rocktoberfest is right around the corner! In an effort to cut down on traffic, congestion, limited parking and headaches, there will be a FREE SHUTTLE to and from Rocktoberfest running from the Rockford Mall Parking Lot both to and from Riverside Park. There will be two shuttle buses running through the duration of the event, so the wait should not be that long. We strongly suggest people use the shuttle and / or carpool as there will likely be limited or no available parking near Riverside Park during the event.  No food or beverages are allowed on the buses.
